An updated cottage with low taxes

This updated Farmingville cottage is on the market

This updated Farmingville cottage is on the market in June 2015 for $129,000. The entire house -- which has four rooms -- was built in 1959. The lot is 6,000 square feet.

What can you buy for $129,000 on Long Island? This Farmingville cottage.

The one-bedroom, one-bathroom home just got a face-lift, with new hardwood floors, an updated ceramic tile bath, new appliances, a new hot water heating system and a newer roof, says Marc Crosier of Richlin Real Estate, who is marketing the property.

Crosier says the dining room can easily be converted into an office or a nursery.

The entire house -- which has just four rooms and is a ranch -- was built in 1959, and is on a 6,000-square-foot lot.

The taxes are also tiny, at $3,100.
