This gorgeous home designed by Frederick Clark Withers has been on the market for a while. Now it is being listed as a short sale and the price has dropped considerably, so it’s worth a spot here on Upstater. Withers is known for his Gothic church designs, and he also worked with Calvert Vaux as a partner. This home has a carriage house, 6 bedrooms, and original character galore. It is a wonderful example of Newburgh architecture at its best that has been preserved. Neighboring homes have equal historic architecture of the same caliber.

This home is located in the more spaced out area of Newburgh and, its close to Mount St. Marys College. It looks like it came right out of a holiday card. Everything looks well maintained and tastefully updated considering that the home is over 80 years old. The kitchen could probably use a renovation to reflect more of the general style of the rest of the house. But there are hardwood floors, a fire place, and what even looks to be a sun room/nook. LOVE those! The rooms seem to get a lot of light, and the tree lined block looks peaceful. See below for more photos and details. Read the rest of this entry
Here’s another home up for sale on Bay View Terrace, on the Bluff in Newburgh Heights. Right now it’s listed as a multi-family. It seems the apartment is located on the top floor. It wouldn’t be that hard to convert back. There are some original details like, pocket doors, stained glass, and built ins. The other huge plus with this home is the garage. There are two of them! One is a two car garage, and the other a three car garage. You’d never have to worry about parking again! Some else I was quite surprised about is that this home comes with the vacant land across the street. Could something ever be built on it? It doesn’t seem likely.

Located in Highland Mills at the end of a cul-de-sac, with easy access to 87 and also near scenic Route 9, this little ranch has all the makings of a sweet weekend escape, featuring a huge kitchen for major cooking, an open layout, wraparound deck, and soaring ceilings. It is turn-key, but with a few more high-end finishes, it could be amazing! For 194K your mortgage payment would be approximately $750 a month.

I can see some grilling on that deck and soaking in a hot tub. I can see that wood stove crackling and an amazing meal being prepared while sipping wine in the great room. At 975 square feet, it isn’t large, but it is quite spacious for a 1 bedroom, and big enough to have a nice sectional for guests to sleep on. Plus there is a walkout basement! The best thing is…this close to Manhattan, your guests don’t have to spend the night anyhow! A little over an hour is like me visiting my friends in Brooklyn or vice versa.
There is no doubt about it, this home is well placed. It is in between the new East Parmenter neighborhood and Washington’s Headquarters and the little shops nearby. The price however, does seem a bit high. What I really loved about this property is the little archway cut-out that was probably used for horses to be brought out back. A nice piece of nostalgic history since this property apparently dates back to 1850! These little quirky places make Newburgh such an interesting place. A little research at the library could probably provide more information on the original owners or use of these buildings.
I can’t tell if both sides are being considered as one but, the listing takes photos of both sides and says that there are 5 apartment units (ugh). These both look perfect for one family each. There are also more buildings out back that seem to service as garages and apartments. See pricing and other information below: Read the rest of this entry

Okay, this one threatens to be a case of greenwashing, but it’s a sweet pad and could be great for a person looking for an in-town property. It’s main green feature is that it’s in walking distance to public transit, in this case the Metro-North Suffern station (currently running on the NJ Transit line). Claims it’s a 45-minute trip to Penn Station, but that’s not true according to the schedule — closer to an hour, depending on the train. They seem to be confusing green with calming. There’s an art studio and lovely landscaping, all smooched into .13 acres. It has low-VOC paints inside, but other than that, not much on the sustainability scale, save for size: it’s a one-bedroom, only 400 square feet! Teeny retreat for almost $300,000! Taxes are high for something so small — $4,300 — but annual utility costs are only $1,500. Walkable to downtown Suffern, a town I’ve not yet been to. Can anyone say what it’s like? Stats on the jump.
Location, location, location. This little gem of a house has all stops to make it your quaint little dream home. But the location isn’t the best in Newburgh, which might be why it is so cheap. At first glance you would think that the interior might be a shell. But surprisingly the inside has some nice updates, exposed brick, and wood floors.
The façade reminds me of this row home in London. It was probably a dingy area a few decades ago, and look at it now. I hope one day Lander Street can get a new image with preservation minded people interested in turning it’s reputation around. Wouldn’t it be amazing? Only 56 miles North of NYC, I think one day these homes will see a turn around. See below for more pictures and property information.
The industrial past of Newburgh has left it with an interesting mix of commercial properties. This warehouse/factory at 311 First Street is among them, and it has a vast amount of possibilities. It’s no secret that the City could use the extra income and, it’s no secret that Hudson River Towns have seen complete makeovers due to a new art venue or museum moving into spaces such as these because of the large spaces they provide.
This building is huge, and has tons of windows that provide natural light. It is located on the corner of 9W and First Street, and only 2 blocks down from Downing Park. It seems to be currently housing some kind of ventilation company. I have no clue of the company is still operating and the owner just wants to sell the building. Either way, Newburgh’s factory housing stock should really be promoted. You never know what might be the next big change. See below for more pictures and information. Read the rest of this entry
Benkard isn’t one of the streets in Newburgh on the forefront of it’s revitalization but, this home has some advantages. Measuring 2,138 square feet this home has income potential with a side entrance. You can even see an addition that has been added to the rear. The pink bathroom needs updating, but little touches like mantels and moldings are still in tact. This property even comes with a 2 door garage. Not something you see in every home in the City. And, judging by the picture, you are bound to have lots of natural light. More pictures and specs below.
