"6,500 sq. ft. of living space includes 8 bedrooms, 7.5 baths, 3 fireplaces, a wood paneled library, elevator, central AC, 3-car garage, hardwood and tile flooring. The great room, living room and dining room all open out through French doors to the generous brick patios overlooking the pool..."The 2.2 acre property features "verdant copious lawns, and exquisite gardens" as well as privacy-ensuring perimeter plantings. And if the current residence doesn't quite do it for you, the brokerbabble notes that "A generous building envelope will allow for a substantial 12,000 sq ft home, pool and tennis." Better get on it, though. According to the listing, the significant estate "is priced for immediate sale." · Listing: Significant Gin Lane Estate [Sotheby's International Realty via HREO]
