From the Zillow listing:


Diamond in the rough. This house is like a castle with the turret decorated with sculptural details. So many of the architectural details have been preserved throughout this 3-story home. The original front door with etched glass opens to a breathtaking staircase. There are 3 wood burning fireplaces on the first and second floor. A walk-up staircase to the floored attic. The attic opens up tons of potential for added finished space. The home has many functioning transom windows with all of the hardware intact. Much of the woodwork has been removed to take out much of the lathe and plaster. The woodwork that has been removed is believed to be in the home where it can be refinished and put back. The carriage house was once a two-car garage with an apartment above it. This one is one of kind and needs someone to put it back to its original glory. This is now your opportunity for a winter project! Restore this historic part of this town.
