A few weeks ago we featured this house at 356 Richmond Avenue with a teaser, hinting that you could possibly own it in the near future. Well, the future is here. The distinctive house, sometimes known as the Shea Mansion, has recently been listed for sale.

The 3 story stone house, built in 1898, was recently renovated from top to bottom. It includes the main residence with basement and two floors, plus a third floor apartment. The main residence has 14 rooms including 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, and 2 half baths. Taxes are a modest $5,275. The 3rd floor apartment will easily cover that cost and more. This is a great opportunity to own one of Buffalos most architecturally distinctive houses.
