The City of Newburgh’s Planning and Development Department plans to highlight one city-owned property for sale each month. Sometimes these properties can be located on very blighted blocks, making a decision to buy very difficult. This property happens to be in an excellent location if you ever wanted to renovate a home. The bluff is just at the end of the street and new neighbors have moved to this block (here and here). There is nice momentum of development happening and repairing this home would really be a turning point for this section of Courtney. New neighbors should all know about the Newburgh Heights Association, one of the benefits of living in the Heights.
“As you can see from the exterior photographs, it was formerly a beautiful, semi-attached row house that has been neglected for many, many years. Too many years. It needs a complete and extensive rehabilitation. We are seeking that special buyer that can see beyond the years of interior deterioration and envision another life for this home. We are only asking a purchase price of $1,930*. But it is going to take money, renovation experience and courage to revive this faded beauty.”
* This is the minimum price. The City of Newburgh will also entertain bids above the asking price. All interested purchasers need to submit a PODA (Private Owner Development Application) . The application is available on-line and at the City of Newburgh’s Planning & Development Office, 83 Broadway, Newburgh, NY. For additional information call: (845)-569-7387 or (845)-569-9400.
