This home at 291 Liberty is listed at $395,000. The price seems really high, especially considering all the work that has to be done. Take a look at some interior photos and you’ll get an idea of just how much work. Despite the work that needs to be done the home really is stunning. There is original woodwork, pocket doors, fireplaces, shutters, moldings, and floors. It’s been divided up in to 5 apartments unfortunately, but many Newburghers have had great success converting these homes back.
291 Liberty was built by William Hilton according to “Newburgh: her institutions, industries and leading citizens.” Mr. Hilton was a carpenter and builder and build almost hundreds of houses in Newburgh “either wholly or partly by him[self].” He built 291 for his own occupation and lived there many years. He died in April 1890.
John P. Andrews also lived in the home when he bought “handsome 291 Liberty” in 1877. Strangely he also died in 1890. Newburgh has a wonderful history that can be traced with many of the homes. For a look at more Newburgh Real Estate, click here.
