Once in a lifetime opportunity to rehab architect Howard Van Doren Shaw's Charles Garfield King House, with literary ties to F. Scott Fitzgerald and The Great Gatsby. The home was extensively remodeled in 1938 in a highly stylized version of the Colonial Revival style. Now set on 1.43 acres and part of Westleigh Farm, a new luxury community by North Shore Builders. Many elegant, classical details are found throughout. The first floor formal rooms are large and well appointed. A gently curving staircase graciously wraps around the two-story oval entry hall. The handsome paneled library is detailed with decorative pilasters, paired French doors, recessed bookcases, and a fireplace with black marble surround and hearth. The grounds include a rear flagstone terrace overlooking a sunken, walled, garden with central oval reflecting pool. Long vistas to a pond and preserved open space beyond. This home deserves the loving restoration required. Sold as-is. Cash only.
