Newburgian Brick Beauty with Bay Windows, $375K

  |  August 16, 2021

Feast your eyes on this Newburgh Victorian, which offers old-fashioned grace and lots of interior light thanks to its original bay windows. 

Well, hello, big front porch. That’s where we first catch a glimpse of our favorite feature this week on Upstater: Bay windows. Nothing brightens a room more than a comfy window seat, reading nook, or plant display set in the curvature of a bay window, and this week, we’ll be shining a spotlight on our favorites from the real estate listings, starting with this 3,441-square-foot Second Empire Victorian, complete with mansard roof and wrap-around front porch…

…which opens into a light-filled interior that includes crown molding, fireplaces, floor-to-ceiling windows, and, of course, bay windows.

You’ll find a second bay window in the formal dining room…

…and you can soak in even more rays from the semi-circular sun room with a wall of windows. Imagine if this were your home office space.

The kitchen’s been updated with new appliances and cabinetry…

…and, on the second floor are still more huge windows, these ones arched, as well as the home’s five bedrooms and a full bath. If we had but one complaint, the layout includes only a single full bath, although there are two additional half-baths.

The residential property is zoned residential but was previously used as an office space (former home of the YWCA of Orange County, NY) so don’t be surprised if you find a clearly-marked “exit” sign here and there…

…which allow access to the exterior with a side-yard that comes with some garden beds. Feel free to go nuts with some tasteful landscaping of your own. Situated in Newburgh city’s historic West End neighborhood, this property is close to local parks, restaurants, historic landmarks, schools, and public transportation.
