About This 1856 Second Empire Mansion In Newburgh New York
One of Newburgh’s most significant mansions in the Historic District! Rare offering of an impressive Second Empire mansion that has been largely preserved in original condition. The exterior has the original mansard roof, belt course and eyebrow window heads with the only addition being an extension of the majestic columned front porch and glazed winter verandah on the 2nd floor.
The interior has most of the original woodwork, magnificent carved wooden and marble fireplaces, intricate cornices, Morrocan inspired encaustic tile and Tiffany stained glass windows. Very simply, they don’t build them like this anymore! Currently a 4 family, this magnificent example of Grand Victorian architecture has the potential to be adapted to many different uses with the appropriate variance or to remain as a stately family residence. Once the home of one of Newburgh’s most prominent and respected businessmen, a railroad mogul twice elected as our Mayor, later a State Senator. Photos by Ann Stratton.
