This freestanding Victorian home was built at 204 Richmond Terrace on the Staten Island waterfront way back in the 1870s. Impressively, it still stands today and has hit the market for $2 million. Lots of historic details, like a curving staircase, fireplaces and wood carvings, can be found inside. Buyers also have some options upon purchase: the zoning allows for an expansion to the home, or they could replace the existing structure with a multi-story building of at least 10 apartments, retail and parking (but we’ve gotta say, we prefer what stands).

Here’s a look at the home, which sits on a 5,400-square-foot lot. It’s got a great location, just a few minutes from the Staten Island Ferry, the waterfront esplanade and soon-to-be Empire Outlets and the New York Wheel.

A curving staircase greets you at the entry. The interior, which holds 2,359 square feet, has lots of lovely details, like exposed brick, moldings and wood floors.

There are also lots of wood detailing throughout the home, like a carved mantlepiece and window framings.

There’s a bedroom on the first floor, as well as three more bedrooms on the third floor. The third floor bedrooms look out over the big property, which includes a yard, rounded back patio and front deck. It’d be a shame to see the property torn down–this home deserves enough TLC to last another hundred years.
