This Newburgh cottage – thought to be built in 1796 – sits on a maple-tree-covered, 1.2-acre parcel of land.
We’re switching up Five-Figure Friday this week with Fixer-Upper Friday with this 1,092-square-foot home in the town of Newburgh, NY, just north of Balmville. While it desperately needs an experienced restoration specialist to reveal its potential, at least the starting price is right at just under $150K. And, we love the location. It’s just situated in a spot that feels like the country, but Newburgh is just five miles away. The Newburgh-Beacon Bridge is close, too, if you need easy access to a Metro-North train station.
You can see its listing-touted “diamond-in-the-rough” status through the photos, but it hardly looks a shambles and seems to be holding its own despite being 225 years old. Some original features remain like the farmhouse plank and hardwood floors, brick living room fireplace, and hardware.
The kitchen is big but needs The Works, from the outdated linoleum floors, to the stripped-down backsplash, to the old cabinetry. Imagine how it would look with a makeover! Upstairs are two bedrooms and a full bath.
The peaceful little plot of land is the perfect park-like setting to showcase the cottage once its fixed up. Have you started mapping out where you’re going to plant flower beds yet? Keep your gear inside the three-bay garage with concrete floors.
Just north of this area lies Hudson Valley wine country and southern Ulster County, NY. Head east, and you’re in southern Dutchess County, where you can keep heading south to Putnam, Westchester, and points downstate.
