Here is an affordable home that needs a ton of work but, if you don’t mind living in a construction zone for a while, this could be made quite a nice abode for the right family. The most interesting part of this house is that it was frozen in time, somewhere in the 70′s. The furniture, the cupboards, the walls…everything. There is a really cool room in the back with original textured wallpaper that has loads of character. On a positive note, the house next door to the left was recently rehabbed by Habitat for Humanity and dedicated to the Cruz Family two years ago. So at least you know the next door neighbors are homeowners. In general Washington Street is characterized by small brick homes that remind me a lot of London mews. Do you think the furniture comes with the home?

A nice property is for rent on Lower Broadway just steps from the Ritz Theater, City Hall, SUNY Orange, and the shops on Liberty Street. It’s inside an old firehouse located at 75 Broadway. This is just for the first floor. The space is 1,100 sq ft with brick walls and tin ceilings. There is use of the side parking lot and it’s on the bus shuttle route to Beacon. The front garage doors are a nice feature. On a beautiful day you could open them up and bring customers right inside. What kind of business could you see in this space?

This home has been abandoned for a long time. It is on a corner lot which makes the location and rehabilitation very important. The current owners who live in Nanuet bought it for $20,000 in 2010. Just around the corner is the Nora Cronin Academy that was also in a horrible state of disrepair. However, it was rehabilitated into a new school and has helped to change S. Lander Street. Wouldn’t it be great if the children didn’t have to see this on the way to school? If anybody else knows any details of the home, please share.

143 William Street was a Rescue Me home last summer here on Newburgh Restoration. The home has been completely redone and now it up for sale. The strange siding and peeling paint have all been removed and fresh coat of brick red paint has been applied.The sidewalk has also been completely redone. Original hardwood floors remain throughout the building and there are many new updates. William Street is still a very raw and abandoned area. There are rows of vacant buildings on this street. However, there are the foundations for a great block with mixed-use potential. For now, at least one more home has been saved.
