Ellington is as far away from Manhattan as you can get and still be in the state of New York -- and home prices in the two cities are just as distant.

After all, New York City residents can only dream of buying a 2,000 square-foot home like this one for less than $73,000.

This Greek revival is fronted by four freshly-painted Ionic pilasters and has hardwood floors throughout. There's a barn on the property and an additional storage shed to boot. The property also comes with the former town court building next door.

One of the area's biggest attractions is Chautauqua, a 19th century resort that hosts daily lectures and educational programs during the summer months.
