22 Bush Ave Newburgh NY

Here’s a quaint home in Colonial Terraces that could be a nice starter home for someone that is handy. From photos it appears it needs a new bathroom and kitchen. It also looks like someone has tried installing new windows. You’ll need to do a lot of patchwork. And if we have a winter like last year, you’ll fully appreciate the driveway on the left.  Colonial Terraces, a garden filled little neighborhood in Newburgh, was constructed in 1917/1918 for workers employed by the Newburgh Ship Yards, constructing ships for WWI.

43 N City Terrace Newburgh NY

This is a really attractive home at the north end of Newburgh on City Terrace, a street with many gorgeous homes. Everything that can be seen from the photos shows a house that is move in ready. The high ceilings and wooden beams are a nice touch. The listing also says that the square footage does not reflect the upstairs or the finished basement.
