A 123-Year-Old Stone Beauty in Newburgh for $449,000

Upstater takes a foray into Newburgh this week.

Newburgh comprises a town, largely suburban, with shopping centers and Midcentury Modern developments—and a city, born before the American Revolution and bearing a mix of grand Victorians, dilapidated apartments, and everything in between. Today we’re in the town, at a stately, c.1900 stone home that from the outside would be right at home in a story by the Grimms.

The interior tells a story of tradition. The foyer has a side-hall staircase and ceramic-tile floor. A doorway to the right leads into the living room, which in turn leads—through an arched doorway—into the dining room. The living room has a hardwood floor, crown molding at the ceiling, and neutral walls.

The dining room has chair-rail molding and a continuation of the wood flooring. A modern, three-light chandelier hangs over the table.

The kitchen has a ’90s, blonde-wood vibe. The wood floor is nice, and there’s recessed lighting in the ceiling. But the new owner might want to update the white appliances and the mix of open shelves and cathedral-style cabinetry.

There’s a lot of room here, though, and double wall ovens.

This family room and a small office (with a full bath) are off the kitchen. Sliders in the family room open to a small outdoor deck.

Upstairs, there are three bedrooms and two baths. The primary bedroom has light carpeting, cream walls, and double closets.

The ensuite bath includes this jetted soaking tub with brass fixtures. It’s in an alcove surrounded by white tile.

An octagonal sink sits in a forest-green and white vanity in the ensuite bath. A triple-width, mirrored medicine cabinet is topped with 1990s matinee lights.

The second bedroom has a beige carpet and is big enough for a bunk bed and extra room to roam.

The secondary bath is done up in green marble on the walls and floor and has a ’90s-esque vanity.

The last bedroom is bright with deep-set windows.

Another set of green-carpeted stairs in the second-floor hall continues up to a third floor, where you’ll find this office…

…this music room/playroom, and another full bath.

The house sits on a third of an acre, a seven-minute drive to recreation at Chadwick Lake Park.  It’s the same drive time to awesome live music and tasty craft brews at Big Dogs Brewery in Walden. The Thruway is just a couple minutes’ drive—and it’s just over an hour to Manhattan from here.

But who needs the lights of Broadway, when you can stage your own plays at the handmade amphitheater that’s right on the property?
