This mansion at 288 Grand Street is listed for $199,000 and the owner seems eager to sell. It was built in c.1840 and around 1889 it was home to E. A. Walsh.
You can see that the home was remolded, perhaps sometime in the 1890’s. It is rumored to be an original
A.J. Downing house, just found out it’s a Frederick Clarke Withers. The house boasts amazing original details like original wordwork, built ins, floors, tiles, fireplaces, hardware, and even a wine cellar in the huge basement! There is also a carriage house that might be salvageable. The details of this home go on and on. Unfortunately, it was made into 3 units, although that can not continue to be the case as it would ruin the architectural integrity of the home. A person who took a recent tour guesses that there are over 10 bedrooms in this home, truly making it a mansion. If you know anyone who is a historic preservationist and wants to buy a home, pass this along! Hopefully it can avoid the cutting board! See below for pictures:
