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.

Here is a cozy home with a cottage feel in Colonial Terraces, a neighborhood built in 1917 to house workers of the Newburgh ship yards during Word War I. It was constructed during the winter from October to April at the height of the Spanish Flu epidemic. You can see historic photos of the construction phase here.

In the desirable Heights section of Newburgh. Lovely Bowfront 1890’s all brick and stone single family with garage/carriage house.

Inside, find lovingly preserved Mahogany woodwork and refinished oak floors throughout. The gracious foyer spills into a large living room that flows into a separate, spacious dining room featuring original stained glass, and all windows in the home are master-restored originals with new storms.

Channel your inner Nicole Curtis and consider rehabbing one of the saddest houses in the Heights neighborhood. It might seem like a crazy idea to take on a project like this, but we have already had at least one successful purchase and rehabilitation begin on a previous “untouchable” home like this one from showcasing it on the blog. This is a great location and great neighborhood to consider.
Neglected beauty on the crest of Washington Heights. This one even boasts views of the Hudson River! Unbelievably, much of the original interior finish remains: beautiful wood trim, wood doors, solid staircase and even a wood mantelpiece. Unleash the river views. Enjoy them from the entire north side of the house – including the walk-up attic. Needs considerable (emphasis on considerable) work to bring this one back to life…but could be oh so rewarding.

Seeing inside this grand beauty is a special treat. It looks like it belongs in the English countryside. Judging from the photos, there doesn’t appear any need for renovations. Everything is move in ready. Many beautiful details remain, and I love the bathrooms. This house is located at the north west end of the city. It is much quieter and more suburban here.
