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. I would say this property is located at a crossroads. To the east, are some of the most desired and admired homes in Newburgh. And one block over, to the west, is the roughest section of Liberty Street. However, two houses away, the old Girls Scouts property is being renovated by one of Newburgh’s urban pioneers who I think would make a great neighbor. The city has provided the following information below. You can also check out the blog post I did 4 years ago with some interior photos. Preference will be given to an owner-occupant purchaser.
“Between Grand and Liberty Streets – in the heart of the East End Historic District. A cozy, 2-bedroom, turn-of-the-century, brick townhome. The interior needs to be completely renovated but it has great potential. Looking for a purchaser with vision, the finances to renovate and the desire to occupy this classic building as their residence. Minimum Sales Price: $26,110. Interested buyers can go to the City of Newburgh’s website (www.cityofnewburgh-ny.gov) and click on the link on the home page entitled “Buying Property From the City of Newburgh”. There they will find the current list of properties, the required application (necessary to be completed even before the interior of the property can be viewed) and the Terms and Conditions of Sale. Also, be sure to follow us on Twitter and Instagram where City-owned properties are regularly featured.”
