It’s not every day you see a home on Benkard Avenue being sold or converted back to a 1-family property. These rowhomes work better as single-family properties which makes this one exciting. Not to mention the original details that remain: the porch, double front doors, the mantle etc.
Work still remains to be done, most likely the bathrooms and kitchen. It is being marketed as having all the restoration heavy lifting done, “historic plaster walls are refinished, floors are carefully resurfaced, the yard is tidy and ready to enjoy, and the basement is clean. Now you get to do the fun part: choosing the finishing fixtures and designing a home you love.”

A completely renovated mansion in the town of Newburgh known as Sweetwood Inn. This home sits on 1.5 acres and has 9 bedrooms. A perfect set up for entertaining out of town guests or housing a large family. It has been tastefully updated and is right next to the Fostertown Elementary School. Sad to see the owners leave to be closer to family.

The Newburgh Community Land Bank, (NCLB) is seeking responses from interested parties for the purchase and redevelopment of either or both of the properties at 123 and 125 William Street in the City of Newburgh, New York, which NCLB acquired from the City in September 2017 subsequent to property tax foreclosure.
NCLB’s mission is to improve the quality of life in Newburgh by stabilizing and revitalizing abandoned properties, returning them to the tax rolls through transfer to responsible purchasers for full rehabilitation. NCLB seeks proposals that demonstrate a compatible use for the surrounding area, a feasible plan to be completed within a reasonable timeframe (no more than eighteen months from the date of sale), and adequate financial capacity and renovation experience to undertake the project.
Corner buildings are the gateways to neighborhoods. The City of Newburgh is looking to improve this corner of Liberty Street and South William by asking for RFP’s to develop 41 Liberty Street. It has been a long-neglected corner on this burgeoning block. They are seeking a qualified commercial owner-occupant with for-prof use – that will create jobs in the community and add tax revenue to the City.
It would be amazing to see development south on Liberty, just around the corner for 109 South William Street, slated for a new restaurant and venue space.
All responses must be received by Monday, April 30, 2018 by 4:00 pm.
Located at the very northern end of Lander Street, this row home is near other attractive row homes. They just haven’t see the same attention as other sections in the city. Be sure to check out the transformation of 197 Lander across the street that used to be abandoned.

This is an interesting property close to the waterfront, on the edge of the Heights neighborhood. This is a quieter street, just a block away from Washington’s HQ, the Newburgh Brewery, and other potential projects. The fire damaged house across the street is being renovated by a couple, and The Foundry next door might be completed one day (do your research on that). Also, the empty lot diagonal to this property was supposed to be developed a few years ago. Those plans fell through, but the possibility is always still there. If everything came through for the 3 corners it might be worth it to put back the storefront that was probably here at one time.
