Historic mansionette for sale...
Be my neighbor, won't you? In the market for a turn-of-the-century hilltop estate? Yeah, I thought so! Aren't we all? Really though, I love this property. It's the view from my front door, and after 99 years of belonging to the original family, it has hit the market.
I keep seeing these investor-types milling about, but I'm really hoping that someone committed to preservation and as in-love with this historic neighborhood as I am nabs it. That's the original circular artist's studio built out of rock...our neighborhood was once a thriving spa retreat/artist's colony with springs that were thought to have healing powers!
I guess you've discerned that Modernhaus isn't very modern at all...
Here's another neighbor, the Todd House. After painstakingly restoring the house, the owners divorced and I bought their ginormous restored turn-of-the-century piano. I'm waiting for the new owners to invite me to a lawn party, Great Gatsby-style.
What is your ideal neighborhood?
