Apropos of the season, this house—or at least its location—is a bit of a mystery. The listing describes it as being in the Old Enfield neighborhood, and it certainly looks the part. However, there’s no address listed, and the map that offers directions (but doesn’t give very exact ones) pinpoints it in Downtown, somewhere near the Governor’s Mansion (which it totally isn’t).
Let’s just trust that the seller is very private and look at the other details. Built in 1924, the 8,157-square-foot home is on .41 gated acres landscaped by Landwest and highlighting towering oaks.
Recently remodeled by RWM Designs, with construction by Michael Deane Homes, the mansion blends mod touches with plaster walls, arched doorways, walls of windows, and hardwood floors.
The three-story home features public spaces on the first floor and five bedroom suites on the second level. On the third level is a bonus area with full bathroom, and there is a wine cellar under the main house.
The back yard features a pool and a water feature, a covered dining and grill area, a limestone patio, and a pool house with full bathroom and kitchenette.
In case you weren’t keeping track, that’s a total of eight living areas, five bedrooms, eight and half bathrooms, plus a kitchenette and wine cellar here and there.
