Cher’s post yesterday about the Newburgh Tuscan wonder inspired me to go upmarket today. Newburgh’s housing stock offers a ton of Victorian mansions and quasi-mansions, so you have your pick of the litter if you want to live like you’re in Clue.
This 1850 Newburgh Gothic Revival has lots of selling points, first and foremost the panoramic river views and that spacious double lot, something of a rarity for urban Upstate river town properties. There’s off-street parking (though no garage), a wood stove in the kitchen, and tons of lovingly restored detail. This house has pedigree, too. It was (likely) built by the famed Calvert Vaux. Vaux is best-known for collaborating with Frederick Law Olmsted on Central Park, but his work can be found allover the Hudson Valley.
The house has been on the market for about nine months, and the seller cut the price by $6,000 back in June. More pics and stats on the jump.
