This Newburgh Queen Anne Victorian occupies an enviable spot with unobstructed views of the Hudson River, but there’s a catch. 

Now, don’t start getting dollar signs in your eyes, looking at this glorious riverfront home in Newburgh, NY, thinking you’re going to turn it into an Airbnb. The listing states that, by rule of the Newburgh City Council, this house is available for sale to an owner-occupant. Furthermore, any offer made also has to be approved by the City Council itself, so be prepared to have your ducks in a row. With the fine print out of the way, let’s dive into this beauty…

…which was built in the 1920s and consists of nearly 4,000 square feet of interior space, original hardwood floors, trim, and a living room fireplace. The house was most recently used as a commercial property with an auxiliary apartment, but the City (which owns this house) would like to see it turned back into a single-family residence, or a single-family with an auxiliary apartment. Does Mom need to come stay with you for a while? This house would be perfect for that.

The floor-plan includes four bedrooms and four baths. And, speaking of floors, you might have to do some de-carpeting, unless you’ve really got a thing for mint-green shag (no judgement; we appreciate its retro charms)…

…and, the kitchen is rough around the edges and could use a complete overhaul…and probably a touch more storage and cabinetry.

Imagine what a coat of paint and some new light fixtures could do for the formal dining room…

…but, as far as the views are concerned, no imagination needed, because they’re perfect as-is. You can see the Newburgh-Beacon Bridge from the home’s many back decks and balconies.

The property sits in Newburgh’s east-end neighborhood, just south of the Bridge and north of Downing Park.
