This house on Ann Street seems simple enough, and might not be desirable at a quick glance, but the location deserves a second look. Across the street Habitat will be building 4 new homes. One of the many conversations you will hear in Newburgh is the need for more owner occupied buildings. These 4 homes will be owner occupied. Also, across the street there is a well maintained building that was restored a few years ago. Just a short walk east and you will be at the Ann Street Gallery, Liberty Street’s restaurants and shops, and the new Safe Harbors Green Park.

This house is back on the market a year later with all the interior photographs it was missing before, and about $140,000 added to the asking price. You can see the house needs a lot of work, but a few original details remain. The exterior carriage house addition looks really interesting. Most recently there was a temporary art exhibition held in the space by StrongRoom.
