Estate living with a rich history in the heart of the city! This sprawling 1915 mansion is the namesake home of the neighborhood. Built in Colonial Revival style on a raised corner lot that once overlooked large swaths of undeveloped land to the east of Ladd’s Addition, this home made an impression from the very beginning. “Colonial Heights” was born.
An architectural wonder by Whitehouse and Fouilhoux (Waverley Country Club), this home has been lovingly restored over the past 20+ years making it a private paradise just blocks to dining, shopping & so much more.
Grand spaces with exquisite details abound: French doors, oversized fireplaces, Palladian windows, chandeliers sparkling across dentil moulding & box beams. 7 bedrooms (5 with attached play/ sitting/ office space) and 5.2 bathrooms. City views & endless space for work & play, indoors & out. No detail has been spared over 4 levels in this sweeping restoration marrying the charm of the past with top-of-the-line upgrades of the future.
Seamless flow from stately room to room. Opulent living room with fireplace and French doors opening to the covered brick porch that overlooks the boxwoods & fountains of the manicured backyard. Main floor office with marble fireplace. Formal dining with an attached sunroom can accommodate the largest of holiday gatherings.
