Exemplary Brick Victorian in Historic Newburgh, NY, $697K

  |  March 29, 2021

The Orange County city of Newburgh, NY is home to some seriously stunning historic residences, but this 1885 Victorian might be our favorite.

Built for successful nineteenth-century Newburgh, NY businessman Isaac C. Chapman, this four-bedroom, three-story home sits pretty in an historic neighborhood along the Hudson River, surrounded on all sides by equally-eye-popping antique homes. Still, it holds its own, with a 3,296-square-foot interior resplendent with Victorian touches like stained glass windows, black walnut woodwork, pocket doors, and four working fireplaces.

…or, an equally-outsized kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances…

…with an adjoining butler’s pantry.

Thanks to eleven-foot ceilings and huge windows, every room in the house feels like its own little loft space…

…and that includes the four bedrooms on the second floor (one of which is a master bedroom with its own bathroom)…
