Here is a beautiful Second Empire mansion that was probably never meant to be cut up into a 4 family home, but alas, has been done so. Although it is sad to see such grand homes carved up into multifamily homes, it has also been crucial to their survival throughout the decades of Newburgh’s fall. Today however, you have the opportunity to own a massive13 bedroom home and maybe just keep an apartment or two. Gone are the days when you could snatch up a Brownstone for $20k in Brooklyn. Newburgh however, is still ripe for opportunity for the urban pioneer.
There are no interior photos of this home, and the listing says that a third party approval will be needed to sell the property. Homes are just not made like this anymore and it would be wonderful to see this home cared for, inside and out. This home is located just around the corner from Quality Row. Rehabilitation of this home would expand the restoration efforts of the Quality Row neighbors further down the block. If you need some inspiration of what this home could look like, check out this Second Empire Home makeover on This Old House (click through to see before and after).
