This grand Tudor single-family home is the fifth most expensive home sale in the Crestwood neighborhood in the last three years, according to Redfin. It recently sold for $1,525,000 and last sold in June 1996 for $536,500. What may have appealed the homebuyer to this property are its hand-crafted plaster moldings, built-in window seats, and ornate mantels.
Other pluses sure to wow are its chandeliers, wall sconces, stained glass, and six fireplaces. There is also a butler’s pantry and what looks like a renovated attic space made into another living area.
According to the listing, the property is in need of restoration. One of the possible downsides that can be found simply while looking through the listing photos is that it has a particularly pink bathroom that would give Pepto-Bismol a run for its money.
With nearly 5,000 square feet, this 1923-constructed home comes with six bedrooms, three full bathrooms, and two half bathrooms.
The listing agent was Marian Huish of Long & Foster Real Estate.
