From the Zillow listing:


Former Grande Dame of Riverton’s desirable Lippincott Street. This well loved home has seen better days, and needs more than a little TLC. For someone looking for a labor of love, it could be well worth it to end up with a grand Victorian Mansion and almost one full acre of property when all the dust settles and the work is done. 6 roomy bedrooms and graciously sized common rooms, this house could be a dream come true. Not ready for a project home and prefer new construction? This house was originally sitting in the middle of 3 lots that all convey w/the property. A savvy investor could pursue a subdivision of 2 or more lots (subject to township approvals) and build some fine new homes on this lovely homesite that sits just a few blocks to the river and a block away from the Riverton station of the River Line. Seller makes no representations about zoning or condition of home. Home is sold in its “as is, where is” condition. All certifications and approvals are the responsibility of the buyer.
