This foreclosed house is rough. The holes in the wall appear to be from someone robbing all of the copper piping. It needs all new windows, kitchens, and bathrooms. Yes, the price is low. However, you will have a very hard time finding a bank willing to finance a home like this, which means you will need cash. Financing and the condition aside, the location is spot-on when the Liberty Street School development has finished. And if you are feeling neighborly, become part of the Newburgh Heights Association.

This is a handsome house at the corner of Third Street and Chambers. It will need quite a bit of work, but it has potential to be the most stately home on the block. The listing provides few interior photos, but the basement looks clean and dry. Location wise, it is located across the street from the United Methodist Church. One block north is Audrey Carey Park (keep your eye on that), and 2 blocks south on Chambers a few projects are happening. A major drawback might be the lack of a backyard and the post office parking lot in the back.

Back in 2014 this property was on the market. At that time the house was a complete mess with major issues. Fast forward a little over two years and the house has undergone a complete transformation. This is a very handsome home, with many original details – wide planks floors, ornate built-ins, plaster moldings, and marble fireplaces. The location can not be beat in Newburgh, right next door to Washington’s HQ and right around the corner is Liberty Street and its burgeoning business scene. This is a 3 family property.
