This six-bedroom, 4 1⁄2-bathroom Woodbury home was once owned by Franklin Delano Roosevelt Jr., the son of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who lived there with his first wife, Ethel du Pont. It is currently in contract, with the last asking price at $1.2 million.

The younger Roosevelt, who died in 1988, served as a U.S. representative for New York’s 20th District from 1949 to 1955 and as undersecretary of Commerce during the Kennedy administration.

The home, built in 1928 on more than 2 acres, has a library with built-in bookcases made of knotted pine, as well as a wet bar and a wood-burning fireplace. There’s also a large dining room with corner cabinets with shell bonnets and a fireplace surrounded by Delft tile.

The kitchen has rustic wood-beamed ceilings. There is an attached solarium, and the three-car garage has a two-bedroom guest suite.

It is listed with Elizabeth DeAngelis and Vera Wiedenhaefer of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty.
