$3,650,000 | Built c.1880 | 9,286 Sq. Ft. | 8 Beds | 5 Baths | 1.8 Acres
The 22-room Second Empire Victorian mansion was built in 1880 for Alexander King, an Irish immigrant and glass manufacturer. Sitting on an unprecedented 1.8 acre lot, the mansion comes surrounded by 6 acres of protected parkland. Beyond the walls, the home has been extensively renovated and modernized. Features include a newer electrical system, new plumbing, and air conditioning, a new boiler, and new appliances, including a 24,000-watt backup generator. The porch and roof of the exterior have also been repainted, and the entire home is surge protected. For those who value properties of historical significance and love classic period details, such as hardwood floors, high ceilings, and floor-to-ceiling windows, yet who are averse to the risks, time and expense involved with performing renovations, this is the ultimate opportunity. Baywood is on the market for $3.65 million with Sotheby’s International Realty.
