Hey, how many pieces of crap do you think could fit in this lot. (That is, if it wasn't landmarked and those wasteful trees were removed.)
The architects worked with care to evoke the proportions and the detailing of an authentic Tudor dwelling with limestone quoins around a heavy paneled entrance door, checkerboard stone patterning on red brick walls, leaded casement windows, slate roofing and, of course, half-timber on stucco.
The interior is replete with period details as well, from beamed ceilings to marble fireplace surrounds, but even by today’s standards the house has plenty of modern amenities including four full baths and two half baths, a maid’s room and bath complete with sauna and a separate pantry off the kitchen.
I bet landmarking has devalued this home considerably, though.
According to exclusive broker Brad Trebach of Trebach Realty, taxes are $10,700 per year and the asking price is $2,300,000.
See, I told you so.
