Finally, a rival for Bay Ridge's fairytale Gingerbread House. This one's in Riverdale, and it was built in 1926 by Guiseppe Cousulich, apparently a well-known Italian ship builder. We've never heard of the guy, but we're digging his house, which is asking $3.75 million for 5,158-square-feet. The 5BR, 4.5BA home still has its original woodwork, but in case of a lumber emergency, there's a carpentry shop in the basement. Plus, turret breakfast room! We have no idea if all this is typical in a place like Riverdale, but if it is, why aren't we all living in Riverdale?
