A Well-Maintained Brick Ranch in Newburgh’s Balmville Neighborhood: $544K

  |  September 18, 2023

There’s something comforting about the solidity of a brick house. Upstater is celebrating that this week, showcasing homes around the Hudson Valley and Catskills that feature brick in their composition.

Today’s pick is in the town of Newburgh, convenient to shopping, restaurants, and the Newburgh-Beacon Bridge. The house has a gated entrance and a wide, welcoming front porch; the lawn, landscaping, and lampposts add curb appeal.

The foyer is bright and welcoming, too. Hardwood flooring extends from here throughout the main floor.

A breakfast room between the dining room and kitchen has toile wallpaper accents and a modern ceiling fixture.


Here, you can see another fixture over the dining table next to the living room. There’s a fireplace in one corner of the living room, against a blue accent wall.


In the kitchen, ceramic tile lines the floor, and granite counters sit on white cabinets.

New stainless steel appliances shine here, and there’s room for a dinette set.

The primary bedroom has double windows, a ceiling fan with a medallion, and hardwood flooring.

The ensuite bath has marble tiles on the walls and a skinny vanity.

This bedroom has white chair-rail on gray walls and four windows in one corner.

The hall bath has marble wall tiles and heated floors.

It’s also got a walk-in tub with a shower.

The laundry room is spacious; it could double as a mudroom with lots of outerwear storage. There’s a half-bath next to this room.

A breezy enclosed porch has stone flooring, twin ceiling fans, and lots of windows.

Basements are large in ranch homes, and this one is no exception. The house has a 22′ by 20′ attached garage, too.

The rear patio is big and private, with pavers underfoot.

A mature tree adds a dramatic flair to the backyard. The property is 1.16 acres and adjoins lovely mansion grounds. Go one way up the road, and you’ll see Newburgh’s grand mansions; go the other way for waterfront dining like Billy Joe’s Ribworks and Jet Set Tiki Bar. It’s about 60 miles to Manhattan from here, and very close to Route 84 and the Thruway.
