From the Zillow listing:


This sale includes 2 homes, a large beautiful Victorian home and a detached caretakers cottage next door. The Victorian home was previously used as a boarding house (old school air B&B) with 4 bedrooms and 3 baths upstairs and 1 bedroom and 1 bath downstairs. The detached caretakers cottage has 2 bedrooms and 1 bath. The home is on the National Register of Historic Homes and was built in 1898. It was occupied until 2017 and certainly needs updating but has wonderful bones and character to be a great single family home or a very profitable bed and breakfast with rooms for private meetings, etc! The property is zoned commercial so all other uses are possible also.
