Leave it up to Riverdale to supply some of the most jaw-dropping, “is it really in New York City?” properties. This Greek Revival mansion looks like it belongs upstate, but it’s located right here in the Bronx, in a neighborhood known for impressive properties with views. The home is situated on the top of the hill, so it has prime views of the Hudson River and the Palisades. The interior, which boasts five bedrooms, isn’t too shabby, either.

Before heading inside, it’s worth exploring the grounds. A patio looks out over the meticulously-landscaped property, which fronts the Hudson River. Because the home is perched atop a small hill, you’re getting 360-degree views of the waterfront and greenery surrounding you.

There are some historic details inside the house, like the wood-burning fireplace in the living room and a curving central staircase.

The best rooms, however, are the ones that take advantage of the view. This sun room faces toward the west.

There could be either five or six bedrooms depending on how many an owner needed. Most come with huge windows and floor-to-ceiling French doors to keep things bright. They also serve as a good reminder to what an incredible property surrounds this home–and all for the price of a luxury condo in Manhattan!
