This three-bedroom Civil War-era grande dame in Greenport, on the market for $729,000, features 12-foot ceilings in its receiving parlor, living and dining rooms.

Construction of the house, which is about 2,000 square feet and is on a quarter-acre, began during the Civil War and concluded around 1874, says Gerald Cibulski of Century 21 Albertson Realty, who is listing the property.

A major renovation about 10 years ago used period-appropriate slate shingling reproductions to preserve the roof. Yankee gutters outside were also preserved.

Inside, plaster crown moldings, walls and ceilings remain. A tall, curving staircase to the second floor is a focal point, one of the home's many "very interesting interior architectural features," Cibulski says. There is also a dumbwaiter from the basement to the first floor.

Modern comforts include an updated kitchen and an updated bathroom on the second floor, as well as a modern half-bath downstairs.
