Looking to land a piece of Hudson Valley history? Here’s a Newburgh brick mansion that once belonged to a Colonel who fought at Gettysburg. 

The Colonel Charles H. Weygant House – named for its occupant, a Civil War colonel who led a regiment at Gettysburg – was designed in 1890 by Frank Estabrook, who’s also responsible for a bevy of other historic Newburghian buildings, like Wheelman’s Club building, and private homes. The brick-and-stone-clad Victorian occupies a lot in Newburgh’s Washington Heights neighborhood, overlooking the western shores of the Hudson River.

Currently, the 2,952-square-foot, five-bedroom home is set up as a duplex, but it could be converted into a single-family if you so choose. The interiors of both sides are in good condition and display a number of period details like tiled entryway, ornate wood accents, paneling, crown molding, fireplaces, and grand staircase. We would, however, de-carpet the second floor and return the floors to their original hardwood, like the first floor.

If you’re a big fan of those rarefied river views, you can enjoy them from a number of locations inside the house, including both first second-floor portions of the duplex.

One of the upstairs bedrooms comes with its own private balcony to bask in those views…

…while the rest come with large windows, tons of natural light, closets, and storage.

While you might not love the $12K+ property tax bill, you might love the location, which is in the midst of some other grand-looking antique Victorian homes similar to this one. From there, the waterfront is steps away with the rest of Newburgh city to the north.
