A few years back I featured this home on a Rescue Me post. It’s on the market now, listed even higher than the $150,000 it was listed at before. It’s quite a lot of money for a building that is probably a shell, and there are no interior photos to prove otherwise. The low taxes are also a tell to the condition. This is also a rough location. All that aside, it could be a beautiful home demonstrating Newburgh’s array of architectural potential.

This is a very exciting house to see on the market in Newburgh. It is a beautifully restored home full of original details directly in front of Downing Park. The best part though, is actually the amazing carriage house in the rear that was featured a few years ago on the illuminated tour. If you are looking for a work space or studio separate from your house, this property gives you that chance. It’s sad to see the owners go, but surely someone who truly appreciates this home will move in. The listing features many more beautiful photos, so be sure to click on the link below.

Here’s a building for sale on Lander Street in need of a complete gut rehab. This is not a project for a first time DIYer. There are floors and walls collapsing. Most likely the home will need to come down to the studs. However, there are a few original details that can probably be salvaged, few may they be. Next door a pocket park has been started and other properties are being rehabilitated. It is located just one block away from Broadway. Like all of Newburgh – so much potential if you can see past the decay.

I know Farrington is a rough block, however, I thought this house is worth of a look for those of you that might favor a more cottage-vibe in a house. Looking at the interior photos the house needs to be gutted but there are still some original details that look to be salvageable. The house is in foreclosure, and the price is cheap if there are no major structural issues. I love the varied architecture in this part of the city. There are a lot of Second Empire homes with mansard roofs and many homes with this gingerbread detailing. If you are up to it, you could probably even make the vacant lot next door into a community garden.
This is a house in foreclosure in between Farrington and South Street. This is a tough block with many vacant and abandoned houses and a lot of disinvestment. According to the listing, this place is huge with 9 bedrooms. The house itself is pretty trashed and will need a lot of money to fix it. Make sure to click through to the listing to see more interior photos.

This is a nice home very close to Downing Park for sale by owner. Everything seems to be maintained nicely and for the most part is move in ready. You could probably make cosmetic changes as you go. The only tough part is the vacant homes that are nearby. However, the Chapman Steamer Firehouse is just down the block, which, if fell into the right hands could be beneficial to the area. Kudos to the current owners. It shows what these homes have the potential to look like.
