I found that area and Marble Hill on google earth streetview, very unique for them to say they live in a single family house in Manhattan, they are so far away though that there are many parts of the outer boroughs that are closer to the popular areas people think of when it comes to Manhattan. If you work in lower Manhattan even parts of Staten Island would be a shorter commute via the ferry. How much do you think houses like those cost?

Very rare, and probably expensive.

Didn't someone try to convince the city to sell him Gracie mansion? I think he had enough moolah to make it worth our whiles- but was declined on principal.

There is a really neat single family detached home located at 16 Chittenden Avenue (a.k.a. the Pumpkin House) at W 186 St, Manhattan. Click the link to view more info on the home. It was featured on an episode of Selling New York - click here to view videos from inside the house (the videos are towards the bottom of the page).

There are a couple that are facing the street too... I can think of one of the corner of Washington and Perry (maybe Charles) that is actually a full 3-story detached Federalist-style home and then there's another on West 10th or 11th near Greenwich.
