0 City Terrace Newburgh NY

This is a carriage house on City Terrace near St. Luke’s Hospital. It is actually a commercial property, and it is being used as an artist studio. South City Terrace isn’t the easiest block. A quick view in Google maps will confirm that. But this property looks very interesting. There are no interior photos. Here is a snippet from the listing:

“This structure was once a horse stable and offers one continuous, open space. Distinct features also include a large loft space which had served as the hayloft.There is a drive-in port with custom sliding doors to shelter vehicles. The floor slopes somewhat: a review by a structural engineer would be prudent.

This warehouse is currently used as an artist’s studio, and needs a new creative owner to realize its full potential. Interior pictures not included to protect current occupant’s privacy.”

194 Lander Street Newburgh NY

Located at the very northern end of Lander Street, this row home is near other attractive row homes. They just haven’t see the same attention as other sections in the city. Be sure to check out the transformation of 197 Lander across the street that used to be abandoned.

A major development for the Heights neighborhood has begun with the rehabilitation of 2 Courtney Avenue! This house has been in very poor condition for many years. Finally, a new owner has come along who is preservation minded. As you can see in the photo below, the house has been stripped of many historical details. The cupola was a large detail that was removed, and thankfully it is being replaced.

Neighbors are over the moon.

“After 10 years, I’m thankful for the new roof on this amazing house next door, and the sweet sound of construction.”

“This is such a huge renovation for the block.”

“I am so excited for this! That whole area is so beautiful and this is one of the best houses! So much character.”

This week the aluminum siding was taken down, revealing the original shingles that are still intact over 100 years later! Restoring these homes in Newburgh is no walk in the park. They require expertise and help from historic tax credits that make the cost more affordable.

This is an impressive transformation of a house on the north side of Broadway. Just a year ago this house looked vastly different. It appears to have been renovated top to bottom. When some of these houses in Newburgh seem helpless, this is an example of the potential they hold. Around the corner is St. Luke’s Hospital, but this area is still very challenging.

The storefront at 15 Liberty Street has finally shed its former life as an apartment, now looking like a proper storefront waiting for a fresh coat of paint. The eventual plan is to create a coffee shop. Peeking inside you can see the preparations of a counter top and artwork on the wall. This work is being done by the SodaCova Group who is also working on 2 Liberty. You won’t see rapid change overnight on South Liberty, but this is complementing other projects such as the Liberty Street School, Simple Gifts & Goodies, and other properties along this corridor.
