This home, known as the William Gansberg House,was originally owned by a gardener, presumably for a large estate.  The property remained in the same family until the current owners purchased it. It had been proposed for demolition, but the owners decided to renovate  The project included installation of new siding and windows as well as interior renovation. A new rear addition and extensive rehabilitation retained the existing footprint and original character of the house.
