505 Grand Ave Newburgh NY

This is a nice inside look at a magnificent home on Grand Avenue (not the same as Grand Street). Located at the very northern tip of the City of Newburgh, this home is surrounded by other beautiful homes and is very close to the marina and yacht club. Everything has been amazingly preserved while being modernized in an appropriate way. There are way too many beautiful photos to look at. If you want to see more, be sure to click on the agents link below.

113 First St Newburgh NY

Another home for sale on Quality Row. Designed in 1835, those houses are now national historic landmarks and in 1836 Thomas Edison stayed there as a guest while establishing the Edison Illuminating Company. While this house doesn’t have any notable historic attachments to it, the Quality Row houses are well maintained. Purchasing and restoring this home will add to the improvements already being made here and the Quality Row homeowners I have met are very friendly. Be sure to check out the house to the left that is also for sale that is smaller and cheaper. The asking price seems high since one of the Quality Row homes across the street was listed for the same price last year, but in much better condition.
