From the Zillow listing:


Currently operated as a turn-key Bed & Breakfast. Designed by Raymond Freeburg, a prominent Western NY architect & Jamestown Native, this 14 bedroom, 17 bathroom (15 full, 2 half) is truly a unique, breathtaking piece of Jamestown history, that was once even described as “unquestionably the finest apartment house in the city” (Leo Ludwig, 1952). This property was contained among the first acres purchased in 1809 by James Prendergast, after whom the city is named. The large kitchen, dining room, living room, outdoor patios, lounge areas, and rec. room offer ample living space. All furnishings, appliances, and maintenance equipment included in sale (w/ the exception of some of the owner’s personal items). Third floor was renovated for current B&B owner – would be a nice mother-in-law suite!
