More exciting news for another Newburgh mansion that is in need of repair, 420 Grand has sold to a couple from Brooklyn. The minute I laid eyes on this house I knew it would be perfect for the New York Social Diary. Fortunately the writer, John Foreman, thought the same, and it was featured in May 2014. Mr. Foreman really dug in to the history and took many detailed photographs if you want to see the inside. One of the most intriguing details of this home is a supposed connection to the Astor family which may, or may not be true.
When the house was first featured here, we all agreed the house has Royal Tenenbaums/Wes Anderson vibe. Everything from the kitchen to the 50’s bathrooms are amazing. Loads of wood work, fireplaces, sconces, wallpaper and more. As for now, I have no idea what plans the couple has for the home. It is immensely exciting and fulfilling to see that another Grand St beauty has found owners just like the Monell Mansion.
