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.

For just $550,000, an entire 19th century house is up for grabs in Clifton, on Staten Island. The three-story home measures just under 1,800 square feet, and comes with a sprawling backyard that features a lovely deck, planters, and plenty of greenery.

The house was built in the 1880s, according to the broker on the property, and has still holds on to many of its original features including the tin ceiling in the formal dining room, the hardwood floors that have now been refinished, and most notably a speakeasy wooden bar on the lower level (not pictured unfortunately).

In addition to the speakeasy bar, the lower level also comes with a recreation room, a laundry room, and a half bath.

The master bedroom is located on the second floor and comes with 10-foot-tall ceilings. There are three additional bedrooms on this floor, with one of them currently setup as a kids room, based on the listing’s photos.

The house can be entered through an airy foyer on the ground floor, which then leads to the townhouse’s spacious living room, which comes with a decorative mantel and large windows. The monthly costs also run pretty low at $294, and the house is located right between the Clifton and Stapleton stations on the Staten Island Railway, so it wouldn’t be the longest schlepp to Manhattan either.
