Perhaps the most unusual aspect of this turreted, brick-and-stone mansion is its location in New York City's borough of the Bronx.

Located in the hills above the Hudson River, this enclave of Riverdale, however, has more in common with the affluent, Westchester County suburbs than it does to the meaner city streets.

The house, which was built for a shipping magnate and designed after his family's Croatian castle, boasts giant front doors, a beamed living room and a master suite, with a dressing room, in a separate wing. The turret has a breakfast nook on one floor and a study on the other.

Features include arched doorways, multi-paned gothic windows, mahogany woodwork and fireplaces, modernized kitchen, heating and plumbing systems and central air. Other than that, the old doors, floors and other features were kept and have all been restored. .
