24 Courtney Avenue Newburgh NY

This is a beautiful remodel done by Newburgh City Living. Although the sale is pending, it’s worth showing what the rehab housing market looks like in the City of Newburgh. The quick sale of this property shows that there is demand for rehabilitated properties. Not everyone wants to be a weekend warrior. Some people want move-in ready properties. I featured this home before the rehab last November. The upgrades look fresh, modern and true to the home’s character. It’s a true testament the potential these houses hold when shown a little love. I also appreciate how they thoughtfully converted it back to a one family property.

I have a feeling this won’t be the last rehab we will see from Newburgh City Living. Their choice of location was spot on. Their next project is 44 Carson. Stay tuned for when that is completed. For more photographs and details about this property, go to Newburgh City Living.

74 South Lander St Newburgh NY

This house was a Rescue Me home featured in 2014. Very little has changed, if anything. The listing includes interior photos, so we can see just how bad this property is. It is being listed as a 2-family home, for less than $20,000. I realize this might look attractive to investors or potential landlords, but this block is in dire need of homeowners for reasons exhaustively discussed here on NR. This property is not in a great location so it’s hard to figure out the future of properties like this.

44 Carson Avenue Newburgh NY

This is a wonderful house to consider preserving if you are interested in house restoration or rehabilitation. Just off Liberty Street there is a set of 3 row houses with an angular facade that is quite unique. Number 44 has had a beating, but there are many original details remaining. There are original fireplaces mantles and base moldings – something that is often torn out to install baseboard heating. For some of the houses in the Heights, these fireplaces are purely ornamental, but it is wonderful to have them there none the less.

Other features I like about this house, the driveway appears to belong to the property. A luxury when there is a ton of snow in the winter. Also, paying some attention to the exterior would be very rewarding. I would remove the concrete front lawn and chain link fence for something more inviting, and I would also restore the front double entrance and the small porch that remarkably is in tact as can be seen on the house at the left.  Check out some interior photos of neighboring house 48 Carson. It would be wonderful to see all three of these homes rehabilitated.

52 Overlook Place Newburgh NY

This house in the Heights section of Newburgh is up for auction. Looking at it here in the chosen palette of colors, it looks like a slice of San Francisco right in Newburgh. Auction details are void of condition details and any interior photos. There is also no mention on starting bid price. However, it is a brick structure that looks pretty solid. Most likely it will have your usually old home issues. It is just down the block from the bluff, and neighboring homes are well kept. If interested, you must be present at the Orange County Court House when the auction takes place.

28 Courtney Ave Newburgh NY

The City of Newburgh’s Planning and Development Department plans to highlight one city-owned property for sale each month. Sometimes these properties can be located on very blighted blocks, making a decision to buy very difficult. This property happens to be in an excellent location if you ever wanted to renovate a home. The bluff is just at the end of the street and new neighbors have moved to this block (here and here). There is nice momentum of development happening  and repairing this home would really be a turning point for this section of Courtney. New neighbors should all know about the Newburgh Heights Association, one of the benefits of living in the Heights.

“As you can see from the exterior photographs, it was formerly a beautiful, semi-attached row house that has been neglected for many, many years.  Too many years. It needs a complete and extensive rehabilitation. We are seeking that special buyer that can see beyond the years of interior deterioration and envision another life for this home. We are only asking a purchase price of $1,930*. But it is going to take money, renovation experience and courage to revive this faded beauty.”

* This is the minimum price. The City of Newburgh will also entertain bids above the asking price. All interested purchasers need to submit a PODA (Private Owner Development Application) . The application is available on-line and at the City of Newburgh’s Planning & Development Office, 83 Broadway, Newburgh, NY.   For additional information call: (845)-569-7387 or (845)-569-9400.
