“The first house to be electrified in Newburgh! Edison himself stayed here while setting up the power station to electrify the city. This magnificent example of Federalist architecture was designed by Thornton Niven in the 1830’s and it was the second house built on Quality Row. 116 has been the home to many artists over the years, as evidenced by the murals by well known artist /writer Don Herron and the creation of a spacious art studio with rear lane access in the back garden. Gracious, understated elegant rooms with perfect proportions are the hallmark of Niven’s design. The original kitchen was in the basement and the pot holder is still attached to the large hearth! The reading library is now a galley kitchen leading out to a wide verandah overlooking the garden and studio. Building does need some work, but provides an extremely comfortable residence while doing the repairs. Basement apt provides income and there is the option of converting the studio to a 2 bay garage.”

A very special home, from a very special family. This property is one of a kind and has been completely renovated top to bottom. The listing says it all:

According to historic records, the houses either side were built later for his daughters and so this select row of National Landmark homes came into being. “Quality Row” because of their elegance, the cost/quality of the workmanship and the “high social standing” of the original owners. Double brick construction with decorative clapboard ext means these homes are extremely solid, soundproof, and thermally insulated.This home has been lovingly restored and adapted to modern family life, sparing no expense in the high end restoration of this beautiful example of Federal architecture. Lead/asbestos remediated, new

 furnace and wiring upgrades, central AC, marble chef’s kitchen, new roof, gutters, water heater.There is a legal accessory apt in the basement awaiting completion and a carriage house with rear lane access to potentially develop as parking/studio space.”

It’s not every day you see a home on Benkard Avenue being sold or converted back to a 1-family property. These rowhomes work better as single-family properties which makes this one exciting. Not to mention the original details that remain: the porch, double front doors, the mantle etc.

Work still remains to be done, most likely the bathrooms and kitchen. It is being marketed as having all the restoration heavy lifting done, “historic plaster walls are refinished, floors are carefully resurfaced, the yard is tidy and ready to enjoy, and the basement is clean. Now you get to do the fun part: choosing the finishing fixtures and designing a home you love.”

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.”
