This 6-bedroom home has much to recommend it. The exterior commands attention with its red brick, stone facing and classic timbered stucco facade. The tall chimney flanks the front door, giving the house a little starch and gravitas. Inside, you'll find pink marble in the entryway, a large living room with a fireplace and white-painted paneling, a sweeping stair, and a master bath with an enormous stand-alone jacuzzi. The kitchen got the full treatment, too. Great if you love dark wood, stainless steel and brown stone tile for both walls and floor. Less ideal…if not.
Just one of the three full baths has been updated. The house also has two powder rooms, and the one in the listing photos was recently remodeled. Bonuses: a detached 2-car garage and a finished basement. The basement is a rare treat—not because it's over-the-top luxe, but the beamed ceilings and vintage fireplace turn "Tudor" up to 11. It's like Medieval Times, only fun, up to and including the artful vacuuming that created perfect chevrons in the plush wall-to-wall.
The house last sold in 2000 for a mere $250K, and $490K is the very tippy-top for Sherwood Forest. We're not sure if the ask is at all realistic, but it's clear a lot of work (not to mention cash) went into this house, and they definitely don't make them today like they did in 1928.
