It’s been almost 4 years since I showed this house the last time. This is a rough part of Liberty Street, much more challenging than southern blocks. Not only are the houses in bad condition, but the street often has large gaping holes. However, it is located just a few houses down from Clinton, that shoots directly to river views and some of Newburgh’s more prominent homes. Also around the corner is the Glebe/Girl Scout home that will be rehabilitated. Do your research to make sure if this is right for you.

I’ve saw this home last year, and cooled to it a bit, but always found it compelling. Understand the neighborhood, but it’s acceptable. Renovation challenges do not sway me, as the qualities, rear lot, and potential far outweigh drawbacks.
Would like to walk through the home again, and discuss the other issues surrounding purchase and ownership.
