This house just south of downtown (1924 Lincoln Drive) has been on the market for quite a while—several years, in fact—and I’ve never understood why. Could it be that there’s no pool? Or maybe it’s the fact that guests have to park on the street? Anyway, with a new realtor and a new price, maybe somebody will finally snap it up. It may look like just another Mediterranean Revival from the boom period, but tour the inside and you’ll find you’re not in the Mediterranean at all. It’s more like Germany or Austria. In fact, what it really reminds me of is Neuschwanstein, mad King Ludwig’s famous Bavarian castle.
The master bedroom is on the ground floor also. It suggests a very elegant European hotel room. It has its own foyer with fireplace, and a private theater. There are three more bedrooms upstairs, each with a bath, plus 2 half baths elsewhere. And with over 5,400 square feet, there’s a lot of room everywhere.
