Last summer 290 Liberty Street was torn down. An empty lot is left, with the remains of an old carriage house. The Newburgh Community Land Bank is accepting RFP’s for infill of this site.
The Land Bank had an engineering report done. Due to major structural deficiencies – a bulging eastern wall due to root growth, a cracked and separating north wall, it was concluded that the building could not be re-built in place using the existing footings.
For consideration, complete proposals must be received no later than 5:00 pm on Friday, July 13, 2018, either electronically at info(at)newburghcommunitylandbank.org or by delivery of two printed copies to NCLB offices at 15 Chambers St, Newburgh, NY, 12550.
This is a carriage house on City Terrace near St. Luke’s Hospital. It is actually a commercial property, and it is being used as an artist studio. South City Terrace isn’t the easiest block. A quick view in Google maps will confirm that. But this property looks very interesting. There are no interior photos. Here is a snippet from the listing:
“This structure was once a horse stable and offers one continuous, open space. Distinct features also include a large loft space which had served as the hayloft.There is a drive-in port with custom sliding doors to shelter vehicles. The floor slopes somewhat: a review by a structural engineer would be prudent.
This warehouse is currently used as an artist’s studio, and needs a new creative owner to realize its full potential. Interior pictures not included to protect current occupant’s privacy.”

This is a very exciting house to see on the market in Newburgh. It is a beautifully restored home full of original details directly in front of Downing Park. The best part though, is actually the amazing carriage house in the rear that was featured a few years ago on the illuminated tour. If you are looking for a work space or studio separate from your house, this property gives you that chance. It’s sad to see the owners go, but surely someone who truly appreciates this home will move in. The listing features many more beautiful photos, so be sure to click on the link below.

This is a stunning home with too many features to mention. It is located at the very northern tip of the City of Newburgh, close to the Newburgh-Beacon Bridge. Leroy place merges into Water Street as you go south, so this home is on a main road with car access in the back. Many original details have been preserved like stained glass, pocket doors, fireplaces and more. And my favorite part is the carriage house in the backyard that has 2 levels. You can drive into the carriage house from the 2nd floor, which has street access. It looks like it could be a wonderful studio or guest house if you wished to convert it. There are many more details that do not appear online, so be sure to contact the listing agent for further details.

This is a carriage house that is for sale in the MGL area. I had shown this property before as a rental. From what I have heard, the layout is a bit strange. So maybe it would be best to convert this to a one-family carriage house. The cons are there is no yard, just a patio and a balcony, each belonging to one rental unit. However, it’s on a good street, near Newburgh’s most opulent homes, including the historical society. And, it’s a carriage house! It might be perfect for someone who doesn’t want yard maintenance. Click through to the link, there are many more photos.
To the rear of some of Newburgh’s homes you can find carriage houses like this one located on Elm Street. The main house is located on Cedar Street. They have kept up nicely with both buildings on their property. It looks like it is being used as a garage, but could probably be converted to a studio or guest house if they desired. Carriage houses are just a charming example of the smaller architectural treasures Newburgh holds.
