This wonderful historic home, named Cedar Grove (circa 1800) has all the charm and ambiance of this bygone era. You enter this grand manor through the living room which has a direct view of the water (East River) through the glassed in back porch. The dining room with a beautiful built in china cabinet is to the left which then wraps around to the updated kitchen and bonus room again with stunning waterfront views. There is also another full bathroom conveniently located just off the kitchen and bonus room. To the right of the living room lies the den with built in bookshelves and this then leads to the primary bedroom and primary bathroom on the first floor. Two sets of stairs are present in the house with both leading to the upstairs where there are three more bedrooms and another full bathroom and a half bathroom.
