Neo, Classical, or Georgian? Get All Three in Madison Park


Whatever was there before was probably a lot smaller. The property sold for $162,500 in 1987, and in 1989 this Georgian architectural artwork was built; which is now for sale and asking $3,272,000. Some upgrades have been made, evidently. The house has 5 bedrooms, 4 baths, and 5,946 square feet of living space, but the value is in how they've all been put together and furnished. The style of the house is neo-classical; so go have fun with the new version of classical design: marble fireplaces, with electric starters; a second kitchen, but more likely one for the kids or nanny; a sanctuary for books, or at least your reader; and a sanctuary for wine, which might as well be non-traditional and local. Go down the stairs and there's enough room for another family, and the wine cellar, and the shop space, and the gym space. They fit enough equipment in there to keep a pro athlete in shape, or to intimidate the owner to the point that they didn't exercise. This is a house that could have some good-sized parties. It looks more like an opera and ballet fund-raising crowd than a NASCAR and beer keg crowd - though in a house this large, there's probably room for a tap or two, and a big screen monitor.
