Newburgh Townhouse with Potential, $209K

  |  April 1, 2021

With some tweaking, this four-bedroom Newburgh townhouse dating back to the 1940s could become a little less drab and a lot more fab. 

By and large, Newburgh, NY‘s residential real estate offerings remain relatively affordable, despite the Hudson Valley’s recent explosion of listing prices. This 1,440-square-foot two-story house could be your crack at first-home ownership, with an opportunity to flex your interior design skills (or hire someone to flex theirs, instead) while you’re at it. But, before you proceed any further, be warned: Things are not what they seem (eerie music intensifies)…

Okay, we’re being just a tad overly dramatic. However, the listing does advise that, “some photos are virtually enhanced.” It doesn’t go into detail on which photos are “virtually enhanced,” but the exterior photo above clearly has a sidewalk that’s been virtually enhanced. The interior photos might be less so, but all will be revealed during the open house, no doubt.

Meanwhile, what needs no enhancement is the fact that this c.1946 townhouse includes a roomy first-floor layout, with a living room and formal dining room…

…as well as a kitchen that’s currently Spartan and a blank canvas for all of your wildest kitchen dreams.

The home’s four bedrooms and a full bath are on the second floor, and there’s even a full basement underneath it all, yet-to-be-finished.

We love the potential in the big, fenced-in backyard, although we suspect that the grass has been, as the listing says, virtually enhanced. Still, a big backyard is a big backyard. Want some grass? Get some grass seed. Want some flowers? Dig some dirt and plant some perennials.

There’s both a front and back porch on this house, which is situated in Newburgh’s southside neighborhood, just a few blocks from the Hudson River, and less than a 90-minutes’ drive to NYC.
