Diamond in the rough. Originally built in 1948, the house was extensively rebuilt in the mid-70's. Additional square footage, more than doubling the size of the original home, was added in 1996, including a virtually soundproof basement (ideal for a recording studio or home theater). Current owner had begun a total remodel a few years ago, including new vaulted open beam ceiling and Loewen windows and patio doors in the family room but the remodel is incomplete (no kitchen, although there is space - fully plumbed and wired - for a kitchen off the family room, including a vent for a cooktop hood and full plumbing and wiring for a center island). The living room features a dramatic, soaring two-story vaulted ceiling and wood-burning fireplace, reminiscent of Big Bear. Total of 3 wood-burning fireplaces. Great East Manhattan location on a full-size 7500 sqft corner lot. Being sold "as is." Want to see what a complete remodel might look like? Check out the two supplements featuring an architect's rendering of the home redone in both the classic Greene & Greene Craftsman style and the Santa Barbara Mission style.

* Combined DOM (CDOM) counts the total days on market for each time a property is listed, and continues counting until the property is Canceled/Expired for 90 days, no matter which agent or broker lists the property. This figure presents a truer picture of time on market because agents sometimes "re-list" a property after it has been on the market a while to try to “refresh” it, or sellers may change agents when a property has failed to sell.
