Big, Beautiful Victorian in Need of a Big, Beautiful Makeover, $249K

  |  June 27, 2019

Mahogany double doors open into this Middletown Victorian’s imposing, 4,508-square-foot interior. 

If you find yourself intrigued by this rough-around-the-edges and oh-so-affordable c.1800 Victorian, you are not alone. We’re intrigued, too, by its classic Victorian details like an ornate, curvaceous main staircase made of black walnut situated inside the grand foyer.

It also contains three fireplaces, two of which are functioning and the third used as ornament, plus hardwood floors throughout, formal dining room, parlor, and three floors total of living space. It looks like it’s been some time since this house has received an update, so expect to roll up your sleeves…or to pay someone to roll up their sleeves, instead.

The listing, however, boasts an updated kitchen with granite counter tops, as well as a “fairly new” heating system. Perhaps all this Victorian needs is a little Charlie-Brown-Christmas-like love to perk it up…


…and, its potential is present in the home’s four large bedrooms, covered front porch, and deck…

…not to mention a quintessential Second Empire Victorian roof with ornate trim and dormer windows.

The property also includes an antique carriage house on its .65-acre lot, right in the center of Middletown, Orange County, west of Newburgh and approximately two hours from NYC.
