Desaussure then sold the house in 1888 to Bernard O'Neill, a wealthy wholesale grocer, who added the cast-iron balconies which still remain today.The expertly maintained property retains many beautifully preserved historic details including 12 foot ceilings, detailed moldings, hardwoodfloors, multiple fireplaces, beautiful chandeliers, large doors and windows, and the original triple-tiered piazza and cast iron balconies overlooking the harbor. Both of the units are spacious with great natural light and easy connectivity to the piazzas and balconies.
