Frederick Clarke Withers Home in Newburgh for $395,000

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. See below for more photos and information. Read the rest of this entry

Newburgh Postcard Home $229,000

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

River Views on the Newburgh Bluff $229,000

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. See below for more pictures and details. Read the rest of this entry

Quirky Newburgh Home for $299,000

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

Urban Row Home in Newburgh $50,000

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.

Factory/Warehouse in Newburgh for $1.2 Million

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

Row Home on Benkard in Newburgh $149,900

Benkard isn’t one of the streets in Newburgh on the forefront of it’s revitalization but, this home has some advantages.

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.

Blank Slate Facade in Newburgh for $125,000

This home at 520 Liberty has design touches from nearly every decade but, it has good bones. I bet you there is hardwood underneath those carpets. As you can see, the facade is a blank slate for anyone looking to restore the original look of this home. It is located on the northern outskirts of the city, across the street from the Mount St. Mary’s College campus. Even the original brick pavement still exists in these parts of Liberty Street. Check out more information and links below.

Row Home Elegance in Newburgh for $399,000

I’ve been following this home for a while, and the price just dropped about $95k. It looks like the sellers are serious. This home is surrounded by other homes that represent the opulent era of Newburgh. The interior reflects that era as well through classical touches of decor. Montgomery Street was one of the first streets of Newburgh to be designated as part of the historic district. The future owners of this home will be amongst some of the most beautiful homes in Newburgh. See below for pictures and pricing information. Read the rest of this entry

Waterfront Mansion in Newburgh for $455,000

Whenever I think of Montgomery Street in Newburgh, this is one of the first homes that pop into mind. It has been photographed, painted, illustrated, and admired by many. Despite being partitioned into 4 different apartments, 192 Montgomery appears to have been well preserved for a home that is over 130 years old. The flooring, moldings, and fireplaces still all appear to be in tact, as well as the iron work. This home even comes with carriage houses! Although, they are in need of desperate work. The clear view of the Hudson River is to die for. This home is definitely one for a history buff,  an architect preservationist or just an old home aficionado. See below for pricing details and more photos. Read the rest of this entry
