Property Description

Introducing Froheim, a 1920 Cotswold Revival mansion designed by Robert McGoodwin for Hollis Wolstenholme. Situated away from the crowds with nearby access to the Fairmont Park trail network, this estate is situated on a large 2.3 acre parcel tucked away on a small dead-end street. Perched on a slight rise, it commands distant views over the neighboring woods, providing great privacy. There is an understated elegance to Mr. McGoodwin's design that remains timeless to this day. Enter into the house & you'll immediately notice the round vestibule window, carved entry doors, limestone floors & hood molds. A gracious entry foyer has 1 of the 7 wood burning fireplaces. There is a wonderful indoor/outdoor connectivity through a series of French
doors from almost every room. The long axis of the house faces South, providing exceptional light throughout the day. The living room has a set of built-in cabinets, windows on both North & South sides & a detailed fireplace mantel. Behind the living room is the Library (3rd fireplace) and beyond that is the heated Sunroom with stone arched windows. Tucked off the Foyer is the powder room & wet bar that leads into the butler's pantry & kitchen. The spacious dining room (4th fireplace) has access to another sunroom & the family room that was added to the rear of the home (5th fireplace). The laundry/mudroom is tucked behind the kitchen & accesses the rear courtyard & garage. The master suite (6th fireplace) has multiple closets, a huge walk-in dressing room & a large period bathroom (with a separate tub, steam shower & the most unusual in-floor scale!). Three more full baths & 4 bedrooms (one with the 7th fireplace & sleeping porch) complete the 2nd floor. On the 3rd floor are 2 more bedrooms, 1 bath, a sitting room & a huge cedar attic storage room. The most delightful in-law apartment is over the garage (with a kitchen & direct outside access). While the house is spacious, none of the individual rooms are over-scaled, it is a quite comfortable property. With 7 zones for heating & 5 zones for A/C, one can easily control the comfort for large parties or individual nights at home. The cedar roof is less than 10 years old and is in pristine condition (installed by Kurtz Roofing in 2007 & 2011). Tucked at the rear of the property is a fantastic 4-stall horse barn with a tack room, full power & water, a security system along with a fenced paddock with a run-in shed! Come explore Froheim (House of Joy) and make it yours today!
