Great stuff Lake, I've been in a couple of those. Another fantastic historic home that recently SOLD is 1231 Glengarry Rd, which is the former Van Valkenburgh Residence and dates back well into the 19th Century. It faced the river, Jags Stadium, and was approached by water back in the day. It sits on 3 spectacular riverfront acres.
