From the Zillow listing:


This is a Fannie Mae HomePath property.  This stately 19th Century grand dame is absolutely wonderful and rumored to have housed Ulysses S. Grant’s physician. While the history is not certain, this home certainly has lots of delicious detail that remains such as floor to ceiling windows, vintage hardware and historic stories lurking deep within the walls. Sure she needs a little work, but who doesn’t?  Five bedrooms and three full baths, with a formal dining room featuring built-ins, and wood-burning fireplace in the living room, and master bedroom.  A wonderful push through door between the kitchen and formal dining room.  Vintage radiators throughout, stunning archways, relic hardware, must I go on?  Okay…if you love the water, a hike and a picnic, just pop across the street to Sojourner Truth Park and enjoy all the grounds alongside the mighty Hudson have to offer.  This home is truly a rare find, and you wouldn’t want to lose it!  Make your appointment now!
