30 Lander St Newburgh NY

I have a serious love affair with Newburgh carriage houses. They have potential to be anything from studio space to a guest house. And who wouldn’t want a double barn door? This carriage house on Lander Street has been holding up well but when I photographed it there was light shining in from the roof. This end of the block is very empty, but the closest to Broadway. Such potential.

If you need some inspiration for a Newburgh carriage house, check out this great one over on First Street that is just around the corner.

There are over 700 abandoned or vacant properties in the City of Newburgh. Habitation of these properties is vital to the revitalization of the city. 30 Lander St Newburgh NY Google Map

A house for rent, swoon! Readers might already know we love carriage houses on NR. If you aren’t up to restoring or renovating your own you can rent this little place complete with a terrace and washing machine. Newburgh isn’t all just huge gorgeous mansions you know. Some of the coolest homes here are the tiniest. However, renter beware: we heard there isn’t a lot of sunlight here and the wiring looks scary. Details below:

50 Henry Ave Newburgh NY

If you love the Heights Neighborhood and carriage houses here is a nice opportunity for you. There are zero interior photos being shown on any listing websites, but this home looks like it is pretty solid with a lot of potential. The home is being used as a multi-family, which could explain higher taxes. However, there is a lot of potential to do something really nice with this house. Perhaps the thing we love the most is that carriage house out back that could be anything from work space to a loft. Another plus seems to be the driveway. Off street parking is always a commodity when living in a city.

Remember the before and after post of 144 1st Street? Work continues on with the addition of a new front door. Owner, Robert Fontaine says that he found the doors dating back to 1880 in Spain. Now they have found a new home in Newburgh. Pretty awesome. We can’t wait to see what the rest of the inside will look like! Remember, although Fontaine is a busy man, he is trying to do the majority of work himself. Here are more photos below.

144 First St Newburgh

This Before and After post is particularly exciting. This home is the project of Robert Fontaine, actor, writer and director whom we spoke to a few months back about his plans for Newburgh. Most of the exterior work has been completed, although it is still a work in progress. He is doing the majority of the work himself and has many ideas up his sleeve for the City of Newburgh. Stay tuned!

The transformation of this quaint carriage house is just a sample of the lovely architecture Newburgh holds, ripe for restoration. Whether you want a studio, brownstone, mansion or loft, Newburgh has it all. If you have your own before and after project of a property in the City of Newburgh that you would like to share, email me.

189 Liberty Street Newburgh NY

How much do you think this exact home would cost in Boston or the East Village? Probably 10 times or much more. This home at 189 Liberty Street Newburgh has been chopped up in to a multifamily home. Once of the sweetest features is a carriage house. It looks like it is being rented into 2 apartments. It probably has the potential to be restored and turned into whatever your heart desires. As for the rest of the main home, there isn’t too much to boast from the pictures. Some listings say that there are original pocket doors. However, looking at the photos there isn’t an original molding or mantle fireplace in sight. This home would be perfect for someone who loves old architecture, but wants a modern interior.

The location is on the north side of Broadway. One block down are all of the main Newburgh attractions, and just a few more blocks down are you are in the middle of Washington Market. See below for more details.
