Classic entry leads to massive living room with 2-story beam cathedral ceiling, fireplace with original ironwork by Julius Dietzmann, doors to patios & verandas with sunshine flowing through all rooms. Stunning gourmet kitchen opens to unique trapezoidal dining area & family room with views. Staircase with original tilework leads to 4 beds and 4 baths, including an incomparable master suite with massive, luxurious tiled master bath all overlooking the city & ocean. Guest quarters, huge rebuilt swimmer's pool with crescent-shaped water fall/spa. An extremely rare offering with two exquisite original 1920s tiled Crane baths and hardware, lighting, flooring & rebuilt original doors."
Oh, AL Schoenborn Residence, will you be our valentine? Designed for a bank executive/real estate developer in 1924, before Neff was even 30, this prize property last came to market in August 2013, closing sale a couple months later for $2.545 million. It's been gussied up quite nicely since then, as you can see from this post on the wonderful Paradise Leased, which not only features photos of the home when it was last up for grabs, but also ones from its Jazz Age heyday.
