It comes with charming details like a gazebo and a wooden bridge

Welcome back to The Six Digit Club, in which we take a look at a newish-to-market listing priced under $1 million, because nice things sometimes come in small packages. Send nominations to the tipline.

Straight out of a fairy tale, this three-bedroom cottage can be found nestled on a tree-lined street in Randall Manor, Staten Island. The 180-year-old house recently underwent a major renovation, and many of the house’s original details have been restored as a result.

That includes the wood-burning fireplace, the old stone walls, the wooden diamond-paned casement windows, and the slate walk. The 2,750 square-foot house is sure to transport you to magical world what with a wooden bridge built over a brook that leads to the garage, and the gazebo suspended over the water, that are all part of the property.

Some of the new additions to the charming house include granite countertops in the kitchen, stainless steel appliances, a basement equipped with laundry facilities, and radiant heat slate floors. All this can be yours for a relatively modest $799,000.

Though the property has been noted for its historic merits from local organizations such as Preservation League of Staten Island, the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission rejected an application earlier this year by the townhouse’s owner to designate the property.
