Back in the 1980s/1990s when cul-de-sacs filled with McMansions were all the rage, there seemed to be no shortage of English Tudor-style homes. When you think about it, they were a copy of a copy: English Tudor-style homes popular in the 1930s originated from Medieval and Renaissance houses of yore, and those 1980s Tudor McMansions mimicked the 1930s English Tudors. And, those of us around during the 1980s know what happens when you make a copy of a copy, whether it be a VHS tape, Memorex cassette tape, or English Tudor-style architecture: The copies get progressively worse.
Almost makes you forget about how cool those 1930s English Tudors were…until you see a real one, of course, like this c.1930 English Tudor we found in Newburgh city.
Will you accuse us of over-effusiveness if we describe this Tudor as magnificent? We’re willing to take the risk, because we are in love with this home. Solidly constructed from brick and stone, the 2800 square foot house features eye-popping details from the get-go: Upon on entering through the red Medieval door, you’ll find a two-story foyer, turning staircase & balustrade, and bordered oak floors. And, we don’t usually fawn over bathrooms, but the perfectly-preserved 1930s baths with original tile and porcelain fixtures are to die for. Also includes three bedrooms and full finished basement with stone fireplace.
Property is just over a quarter-acre in size and features a private backyard stone patio with frame for a shade awning. Located near Mount Saint Mary College in a historic neighborhood north of South Street, minutes from the Hudson River waterfront.
