March 31, 2017

18th-century Dutch Colonial home, one of the city’s last, is for sale for the first time in 40 years

The Cornelius Van Wyck House in Douglaston, Queens, built in 1735 and both a New York City landmark and on the National Register of Historic Places, is now for sale asking $3.25 million (h/t Curbed). The home has been called New York City's "most impressive architectural remnant of the early Dutch Culture." In addition to its historic and architectural significance, it's located on Little Neck Bay and is one of the largest true waterfront properties in Queens. The home at 126 West Drive has been well-tended over the years, with many “interesting details of the Dutch period” still intact according to the property's 1966 landmark designation report.
