Circa 1900 shingle style 3 story home with magnificent stone porch and chimneys. Interesting peaks and dormered windows, Tudor touches. Once owned by financier John Moody, this was at one time the Winter Clubhouse for the private Merriewold Club. As part of this Club you have use of the 60 acre lake, a charming clubhouse, clay tennis courts, 9 hole chip n' put golf course, hiking trails, and a full time caretaker. Surrounded by almost 5 wooded acres, you are a stone's throw from pretty Florence Lake, and only a 5 minute walk to a private pristine Merriewold Lake for swimming and boating.
This 5000+ square foot home has been sadly neglected and though it has a brand new roof, it needs restoration. But oh my! Huge foyer with fireplace and massive curving staircase welcomes you. High ceilings, pocket doors, wood trim and floors, stained glass windows, 3 stories, 5 fireplaces. Special opportunity for someone who wants a true Estate quality home. Lots of work but awesome returns!
