Silent sentries accent the brick colonnade and look over the “motor court” of this Lazy River listing in the Tanglewood area. Were the lions not of concrete, they might roam the home’s half-acre corner lot, which has grassy areas, a pool, an outdoor “summer kitchen” with dining pavilion, and an arbor.
Inside, a paneled library of near-collegiate proportions includes a second-floor balcony. Also: a wine cellar.

In March, the property re-listed at $2,899,000 with a new agency, taking only a 6-week break in its year and a half on the market. Before expiring in February, the previous listing initially sought $4.2 million in November 2010. That’s a hefty drop, but it came in chunks. The asking price for that listing was cut twice, reaching $3.2 million by September 2011. The property last sold in 2008 for $2,499,000.
