This fabulous early 20th century house was built in 1906 and first served the Riverport community as a small hotel in the rum-running days of Prohibition. Al Capone is said to have frequented it and stayed there. This is large and yet cozy home, with stained glass doors and light fixtures, the original wood wainscotting in the dining room, high wood baseboards and window trim, ornate cast iron hot water radiators and the added benefit of a library and morning sitting room on the first floor.  There are 6 heating zones with programmable thermastats easily controlled for your lifestyle. There is 3500 ft of living space on the first two floors. The third floor has been converted into a large studio space for yoga, painting or a home based business. Across the front of the house runs a veranda and upper deck offering beautiful westerly views of sunsets over Ritchy’s Cove  The house is resting on a stone foundation with a full height basement and is extremely solid.
