They say that not everything that glitters is gold. But this house definitely pique’s some interest. The price and location are good. It’s only a few doors down from National Historic Landmark, the Dutch Reformed Church and it’s in the MGL neighborhood. Surely photos exist that show the original condition of the exterior. The listing says that it is a foreclosure and that there is still a lot of original woodwork in place. They also say there is a roof leak that has only done damage to one room, and that the property has river views. This place seems worth a look if you have the money. There is also parking.
I did a little bit more digging and found another listing with fuzzy pictures that aren’t that flattering. It basically needs a new bathroom and kitchen amongst other things. But for a home built in 1890 you know that you are going to have to put a lot work into a place; even more so if it wasn’t cared for. If I remember correctly, the house to the left was on the market a while back. I don’t remember the exact number, but I am almost certain it was more than $100k for the place. Whoever gets this home will be in the vicinity of homes that are on the market for $200-$300k. Check out the following link to see more examples of Newburgh Real Estate.
