Never been done before, folks. This "architecturally intriguing" half-19th Century Victorian Italianate "summer house," half-1920s Arts & Crafts archetype, 10,000 square-foot Frankenstein-ian (in the best way) property is now on the market for the first time ever. The $1,575,000 home is chock full of options: it could be re-purposed into a single-family home, multi-unit building or subdivision for new single-family dwellings. Currently, the property, whose 1920s-inspired wing was designed by then-owner and architect H. Louis Duhring, is divided into 3 living spaces: a main residence and two apartments. There are terraces, gardens, and atriums galore, a pool out back, and Fairmount Park at your door.
