It's no castle, but this sprawling $3.699 million stone house in the Bronx holds its own among the historic beauties found in Riverdale and Fieldston. According to PropertyShark, the 5,472-square-foot home turns 100 years old this year, and the brokerbabble says the "well-maintained home has the craftsmanship of a bygone era." That translates to lots of carved woodwork, French pocket doors, several working fireplaces and a glass-enclosed stone sun room. It sits on half an acre of land at 4513 Livingston Avenue in Fieldston and comes with about 3,500 square feet of development rights, should a buyer be looking to create a megamansion.
