If you are familiar with the East Parmenter Neighborhood or Washington’s Headquarters, this property might be familiar to you. Really this is in an ideal spot, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it gets snatched up quick. However, the lack of interior photos might mean that there is serious work to do on the inside. So, let’s talk about location. This entire block has seen development and beautification work by Habitat for Humanity. Soon, the majority of this block will probably consist of more homeowners than renters, if that is not the case already. The house to the left is very quaint and the owner keeps their garden quite nicely, as well as the other homes across the street that are very well maintained. If you are considering moving to Newburgh, this would be the spot. It’s only around the corner from Washington’s HQ, the Brewery, and all the shops on Liberty Street that are paving the way for the Newburgh renaissance. Two years ago this property was listed for $200k more. It seems like the owner wants to sell quick.

This was my first home in Newburgh! Don Herron, an old friend from my Soho days, connected me with the resident landlords/apartment. The landlords walked away from the property, but I stayed and passed on the apartment to responsible friends. If I hadn’t it would have probably been vandalized as it took the bank more than 7 years to complete the foreclosure because it was a bank that didn’t have offices in the area.
When I lived there, there were two incredible duplex apartments with 1.5 baths and 2 bedrooms each, washer/dryer hookups, plenty of closet space, beautiful wood floors and a wonderfully landscaped backyard. I watched as the current owner failed to maintain it and would be wary about the interior without photos. When it was renovated in 1988, it must have been a gut job because all the walls are now sheetrock- that doesn’t hold up well to abuse. It does have off street parking for 2 cars in the rear through a shared driveway with its former carriage house to the left.
This house is no longer on the market. I brought it. The interior is in very good condition. I’m looking for contractors now to work on the exterior. I’m very excited to see how it all goes.
That’s great news Georgina. I knew this house wouldn’t last long on the market. I hope you will consider sharing your home renovation adventures with us on the blog!
