This majestic home resides on a 3.51 acre parcel. A second 7.71 acre adjoining parcel, zoned GR2.5, has great equestrian use potential. The two parcels of 11.22 acres will be sold together. NOTE: The following is an open letter from current owner: "We purchased this home in 1969. It was owned by a couple who were avid antique collectors. The REALTOR who represented us informed us about some of the history of the home. He informed us that the fireplace in the parlor (as they labeled it) was shipped by boat from London, England where it was purchased from a marble company that had been in business since the early seventeen hundreds. He told us that this fireplace was carved out of worm wood (which it is, tap and you can hear the hollow places). To make the wooden model for the future fireplace for President George Washington. A gift to the U.S. From England. The marble fireplace now resides in Mount Vernon, Virginia. George Washington's home when he was President of the United States. My husband and I went to see the marble fireplace. It is identical even to the niche on the right side about fourteen inches down. The sculptor being careful to do as told to make it exactly as the wooden one, carefully made the same mistake of the niche as the original wood sculptor. ~We were promised the papers from the original people. However, due to a divorce the papers never got to us. I can assure you they are identical in appearance. ~We were also informed that a Swiss woodworker came to the U.S. and lived in this home for about six months while he carved the stair banister, the crown molding in the dining room and the parlor, all the carved closet doors inside and garage doors outside. I had a gentleman here in Denver make all of the leaded glass doors on the cabinets and between rooms. I have enjoyed every minute of my fifty-two years living in a home owned by the Lord where he still presides."
