Does this Mediterranean-ian home in Crestwood actually like its view of Memorial Park across the street — or not? Judging from the corner lot’s tree canopies and the 1999 home’s extensive use of plantation shutters, it’s a little hard to tell. When a new agency re-re-re-relisted it a month ago, the property’s asking price came to $1.7 million. A series of 3 previous listings dating back to March 2013 shows pricing efforts targeted $1.975 million at first, but backed down to $1.935 million in September 2013, $1.895 million in February 2014, and $1.795 million in April.
In its current state of readiness, most of the 5,446-sq.-ft. home has a frothy creampuff finish. But the dining room’s Venetian plaster walls in appetite-inducing scarlet are a real standout:
Without furniture to distract, the tile flooring sets up a tempting, unobstructed skating-rink surface that slides through front rooms to the eat-at-island kitchen . . .
to the family room:
Glass shelving in the built-ins floats across its grass cloth backdrops. Access to the 3-car garage is beyond the back staircase:
A back patio (above) and a loggia running the length of the room lie beyond the family room’s windows:
Here’s the master suite. Could it have access to the front balcony? (The listing doesn’t indicate which room gets the over-the-canopy park view.)
Study or future closet? This room with built-in desktop is right off the master bedroom:
There’s an unmediated media room upstairs . . .
and it’s near the 4 secondary bedrooms and their miscellaneous bathrooms:
The 3rd floor has this open, carpeted space that’s pegged as the game room:
Outdoor venues include this slate-tiled space at the back of the family room that’s en route to . . .
the pool, shaded by the home to its west and the ivy-covered back wall of the garage to its south:
That means the “yard” is on the south side . . .
near the outdoor grill. The kitchen and family room both have direct access to its alcove:
Several homes with red tile roofs cluster near this one. They line up on the one side of the street, which carries the neighborhood’s name. It also serves as a border between homes on the east side of the roadway and any Memorial Park passersby.
