As a child, after both her parents had passed away, Eleanor Roosevelt left her family’s New York City apartment to spend her summers at her grandparents’ Hudson Valley estate known as Oak Terrace. She even returned back to the Germantown property after high school, spending half her time there until she married FDR in 1905. According to Brownstoner, the family estate was sold off in parcels in the 1930s, one of which is the brick gatehouse that marked the entrance. Built in 1872, this charming brick structure known as the Oaklawn Gatehouse has just hit the market for $960,000.
