The Dolobran Estate was originally built in 1881, then delightfully re-modified by architect Frank Furness over the next 14 years in his signature idiosyncratic style. Featuring six bedrooms and six baths, the estate has a place on the National Register of Historic Properties, and the two-year renovation on the home, its first since being a Vassar show home in the early 1990's, is near completion. Asking just shy of $2,500,000, the home features newly-installed central air conditioning, gorgeous embellishments and thoughtful built-ins throughout, an actual ballroom, an apartment area that has its own bathroom, and an audaciously-spacious master bath.
