Spotted on my road trip…

Spotted on my road trip… a spectacular Second Empire mansion in need of saving in Newburgh, NY.

This house has all the bells and whistles of the Second Empire style including a brownstone bay windows and carved trim on the brick exterior, a patterned slate Mansard roof, and a belvedere on top – all overlooking the Hudson River in a beautiful historic district. After spotting it during my stop there, I was happy to discover online that its sale is pending. I hope it will get the quality restoration it needs.

Every step of the process to restore a house like this is covered in “Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners.” From assessing the house to understand its character-defining features and restoration needs and designing a restoration that prioritizes preserving key features while making it livable in the 21st century. 20 chapters include detailed information on structural and mechanical systems, exteriors, interiors, tools, and resources.

The 700+ page award-winning and best-selling hardcover book is available in bookstores nationwide and from online retailers.
