From the Zillow listing:


Rare opportunity to secure and restore a Historic property. The HENRY CHAMPION HOUSE, designed by William Sprat a prominent early architect. Federal period architecture. This home is on the National Register of Historic Places since 1972. (see listing attachments for detail) Great potential- the home is situated in a commercial zone but used residentially. Opportunity awaits the entrepreneur with vision. Detached 3 car bar/garage. Level acre and a half plus lot with high visibility in Westchester Village offering proximity to major highways. This grand dame with a 3 gable windowed roof needs a new steward and will be sold “as is.” Inspections are for buyer information only and no repairs will be made by the sellers who enjoyed occupying the home.
