    I really like the home, my only caution is the age of the house. Am I being overly concerned?

    It’s nice, enough. It looks as if any 1929 charm and character (assuming it had any) has been edited out. There’s no patina of age, which is what I find appealing about older houses like this.

    Not bad at all. The only things I don’t like are the low ceilings in most of the rooms (comes with the age of the home) and the bare wall around the front entrance. I think I’d cover that wall with ivy or maybe even add a more ostentatious stone surround.

    A thorough update has made this home go from old and charming to new and boring.

    I really don’t like the exterior…NO windows on the facade?? Inside, as Grrrowler said, has had all traces of 1929 removed. I’m not a fan.

    Anyone know what the story is with the empty lot next door with the interesting old abandoned structure and bare foundation?

    I love the property, looks really private and the amenities are superb. I also like the outside, and agree would add some vines to the front. And I think the inside is really nice. In all honesty, alot of you on here are never happy. If the inside isn’t updated, you all complain that it’s old and dated. Here we get a house that is updated and you all complain that its too new and not old enough inside for you. Sorry, but if it still had the old charm patina inside I’d say no thanks. Especially when asking $12,500,000. The exterior still has the charm, the inside is nice and new like it should be. Its 2012, not 1929 anymore..

      Valid points, all, but a motivated owner and a skilled decorator will be able to update the interior of an old home sympathetically and end up with a house that not only satisfies modern life in 2012, but also honors the roots of the original home. This home does not even attempt that…instead, an opportunity to cherish the original home has been lost. There are plenty of examples of homes on this site that tread the delicate line between these two ideals extremely well; you won’t have to dig too deep to find them, but you won’t find this home in that category.
