We featured this 1927 Robert O. Derrick-designed Cotswald Manor a few years ago when it was the home of the past DIA director. In early 2014, it was listed for $525,000. It seems to be having trouble finding its next new owner, and now it’s back on the market with the same pictures as last time. But here in later 2016, it’s listing for $725,000.
It does have one difference in the pictures and that’s the carpeting on the spiral staircase. Now there’s a black and gold floral pattern instead of a solid burgundy. Odd.
But the rest of the pictures tell the same story. It’s a grand, elegant house, with 6,000 square feet, six bedrooms, five bathrooms, five fireplaces, plenty of wood paneling, and a prestigious address. The kitchen is huge, with a giant island in the middle. The listing says it has a new boiler, separate A/C, and "valuable updates galore!" Will it find its new owner soon?
