A special home in the heart of Ives Woods. Built in 1915 & set on a wooded 1.35-acre lot, this classic residence was one of the first in Ives Woods. Magnificent cobblestone stone walls define the lot; 5,576 SF over 3 stories includes 7 bedrooms, 4 sleeping porches, 4.2 baths and 2 staircases. The cook's kitchen is the heart of the home with Viking, Sub-Zero and Bosch appliances, lots of prep room and gathering space. The grand foyer reveals a large living room, attached family room (both with built-ins) and access to a screened porch - plenty of space and great flow for a large crowd. An expansive butler's pantry, complete with laundry, can be a staging area for the biggest of parties. A light-filled sunroom has been used as a private study or office space. The 2nd and 3rd floors have spectacular tree top views of the neighborhood from each window and sleeping porch. A separate apartment on the 2nd floor is perfect for visitors with dedicated bedroom, bath, and study. Outside, tucked into the woods, a bluestone patio and a woods with plenty of room for imaginary play. A rare opportunity to live in seclusion in the heart of the city, moments from Burns Park, minutes to campus and downtown.
