    Description

    NOTE: ASSESSED VALUE HAS BEEN LOWERED CONSIDERABLY. Howard Van Doren Shaw masterpiece set back from Sheridan Rd on a breathtaking ravine. The grand historic home on 1.2 stunning acres needs attention-a burst pipe destroyed an upstairs wing & the kitchen. Despite the need for considerable reconstruction, the home's sculptural medallions, vaulted entry, richly detailed hardwood & marble, and intricate ceilings convey unmistakable scale, presence & elegance. There are 4 generous en-suite bedrooms on the 2nd level, including a 3-rm master. A separate wing w/smaller bedrms & shared bath (burst pipe) is ready for redesign. The bonus 3rd flr is a perfect media/rec rm or studio. Several rooms offer sweeping views of the spectacular property. The pool was used as a fish pond & needs work. The separate pool house provides baths w/dressing areas & showers. The house is on the Nat'l Register & demolition may be subject to delay; please contact the city for more info. Sold as-is. Incredible opportunity! Note: AN APPT IS NEEDED TO WALK THE PROPERTY.

    Sold by Compass.
