Take a Tour of The Spruces, an Historic Newburgian Victorian for $599K

Prepare to have your heart stolen by this classy 1860s Victorian in north Newburgh, NY.

Situated on the opposite side of the Hudson River from Beacon in Dutchess County, Newburgh offers a waterfront locale with historic buildings and homes, like The Spruces.

The 3,531-square-foot Italianate is a gracious older home with details original to its 1860 pedigree. An open first floor with soaring ceilings, however, gives it a breezy and contemporary feel throughout. Includes hardwood floors,  plaster crown moldings, stone mantels, and original windows and staircases.

It’s not without its modern comforts, like central air conditioning, back-up heating system, and updated baths. Here in the kitchen, there’s nothing old-fashioned about these stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops.

Its five bedrooms are roomy and light-drenched…

…and the three baths get style points, too.

Included on the 4.5-acre parcel is an antique barn with 100A electric, wood stove, and rock climbing wall upon which to practice before tackling some real-life rock climbing in the Shawangunk Ridge less than a half-hour away. The two-car garage has electric, too.
