    Stunning and significant, Frederick Clarke Withers’ early Victorian masterpiece sits serenely back from the road in elegant Balmville, surrounded by sweeping lawns. Completed in 1856, its spacious rooms with 10-feet ceilings lend grandeur & grace, reflecting the splendor of the era. Period details found in the 5 unique fireplaces, mahogany coffered ceilings & wall paneling, original recessed mahogany bookcases with its 19th century glass doors intact and wonderful decorative strap work ceiling make it extraordinary.  Meticulously wood carved built-ins, ornamental plaster swag molding, & ceiling moldings with dainty corner cartouches, add grace and charm. Partially restored and renovated, with funky 40’s bathrooms & a completed updated kitchen, recent extensive repairs have been made inside and out to the slate roof, plumbing & electricity.  A paved, covered verandah runs the length of the house, perfect for al fresco dining and evening soirees.   Just perfect for large gatherings, a crowd of family & friends, this exciting, important piece of Newburgh history is waiting for those few special touches to make it shine as brightly as it did in 1856.

    The home’s location is superb. Balmville was the site of Algonac, the birthplace and home of Sara Delano, mother of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and an air of history and grace lingers.  It is a most perfect location filled with distinctive 19th century homes, churches and other architectural accomplishments, a throwback in time to an elegant, slower-paced lifestyle echoing the grandeur of life as a 19th Century homeowner but now with everything 21st Century you might want or need within easy reach.  The home is directly across from the historic Powelton Country Club with its meticulous 18-hole golf course, 6 American red clay tennis courts and magnificent clubhouse facilities.  And just a few short steps away from that lovely walk in the sun, is the vibrant Newburgh waterfront with its impressive variety of restaurants and galleries, and the thriving marina where boating, jet-skiing and kayaking are in full swing in the summer months.  Enjoy the bike paths and walkways along the waterfront or take a river cruise on one of the paddleboats anchored there. Stop for a while to listen to whatever musicians may be performing at the bandstand along the way.  Stroll up to Grand Street with its venerable Gothic Revival cottages designed by other renowned architects like Calvert Vaux, Frederick Law Olmstead and Andrew Jackson Downing.  It’s pretty amazing - Newburgh’s East End Historic District is home to more than 4,000 historic buildings making it the largest such district in New York State. Passion and reverence for those buildings thrive in this ardent community of renovators, restorers and proud homeowners. A renaissance is happening here with cafes, funky restaurants, galleries, and antique stores popping up thoughout the City and a thriving artists community and gallery at the Atlas Studios hosting Art Shows, Concerts, Literary & Film Events. Not far away are other pleasant distractions.  Dia, the museum for the Dia Art Foundation's collection of art from the 1960s to the present, sits on the banks of the Hudson River in Beacon, New York, just across the Bridge. Hop into the car for a 20-minute drive to mega-shopping at Woodbury Commons with hundreds of name-brand outlet stores or take in an outdoor concert or football game at West Point. It’s about an hour from NYC, so is perfect for commuting or just weekending. The location is hard to beat with easy access to Interstates 84 and 87, Stewart International Airport and the Newburgh-Beacon Ferry service to the Metro North railroad station at Beacon pulls into Grand Central Station in an hour and 15 minutes. Come see for yourself!  It’s a happening Town!
