Per the Listing: "One of the Grand Estates of historic, gated Lafayette Square. Large windows open onto a wide front porch that runs the length of the house, filling the house with light. A well designed floor plan guides you seamlessly from room to room. 2 chandeliers greet you in the entry hall, another in the formal dining room featuring 15 inch crown molding on the coved ceiling, wainscoting, built in buffet and cabinets with mirrors and beveled glass doors. The living room with fireplace has an attached sunroom with French doors opening onto a large game room along the back of the house; French doors open onto the back garden.? A maid's suite with bathroom connects to a laundry room. A large butler's pantry with built in cabinets opens to the kitchen. From there, a servants staircase leads to the second floor. A graceful staircase leads to the second floor. The back garden is bordered by tall hedges and has a large lawn with ample space for parties, grapefruit and tangerine trees, and swimming pool."

This place could be amazing with some renovations and restorations to certain areas of the house -- that kitchen is a travesty, and that pools needs some help. It's hard to tell what's going on with the flooring in the entry. Is that marble? Great location and great looking home otherwise.
