A stunning home that sits on more than two acres in Wynnewood has listed for just under $2.5 million, and it comes with a star architect attached to it: The 19th century home was designed by none other than local architect Frank Furness.
Named Hedgeley, the home was first a farmhouse that was part of a larger estate owned by the Winsor family. In 1887, Furness, Evans, and Co. was hired to enlarge and alter the existing structure. Today, it is a six-bedroom, five and a half bath house with many details that harken back to typical Furness-designed residences.
His craftsmanship is perhaps most evident in the foyer, where there is an oversized fireplace that’s highlighted by exquisite woodwork, a grand staircase, and coffered ceilings.
However, the owner notes that the home has undergone extensive renovations and changes since the late 1880s, including a simplification of the exterior in the 1920s and more upgrades as recent as 2003. The kitchen and breakfast room, for example, is brand new.
All in all, the home remains incredibly grand, from the bright and airy sunroom to the property’s impressive 10 fireplaces. The asking price of the home at 111 Cherry Lane is $2,499,999.
