This home at 165 Grand Street has all the updates you could possibly want in a home that is over 140 years old. It was built in c. 1865 in the Eastlake style and the original owner was A. Wilson according to the Newburgh Historic District Tour Guide. In the early 1900’s it was the residence to a Mrs. Octavius Applegate who was a secretary at St. Luke’s Hospital, it seems her husband was a Reverend.
The home is full of original details and quaint characteristics. The front receiving room/great room is bright and has lovely built in columns and book cases and an original fireplace. The floors don’t appear to be original but you probably wouldn’t have a squeaky floor problem. In the kitchen the fireplace has been used as a pantry to store items. Most rooms have an original fireplace and the bathrooms look tastefully updated and the bedrooms look very spacious. If you are looking for a home with modern amenities and updates but with old world charm, this would be a home to consider. See below for details and more photos.
