This late-Victorian antique house has been expanded and updated. Set on a generous acre plot, the house is 5000 square feet filled with period charm, including the gingerbread trim outside and the moldings indoors. Particularly noteworthy is the lovely new kitchen with Lacanche range and the master suite, with its own balcony, a tiled fireplace (which would have to go if we were the buyers), and a white marble bathroom with steam shower and sauna. There are four bedrooms in all, four baths, and two half baths. The lower level, which is walk-out, has been finished as a playroom, mudroom, and storage area.
Asking price for the property, repped by Mark J. Baron and Jane Babcock at Brown Harris Stevens, is $4.75 million. 1.5 years ago, it was one million more. We think this is a great price now.
With an unusually large plot of land, there’s plenty of room for terraces, a 40′ gunite pool with pool house, a separate garage and a spacious parking court. The large porches offer plenty of room for covered dining and relaxation as well.
The one catch with this property is the location. Oakland Cemetery is across the street, which might put people off. Also, Jermain Ave is a busy cut-through street, so there’s that too. Other than those issues (we personally think living next to a cemetery would be cool), this is a great property.
