6,000 square feet feels like a castle

Built in 1937, this English manor-style home in Sauganash was completely restored and renovated. The arched doorways, dark wood, leaded glass windows make it feel like more of a castle than a home. Well that, and the 6,000-square-feet of space spread out over four stories.

The entryway and first-floor office have intricate cut wood patterns in the flooring.

The five-bedroom, four-bathroom home comes with details like a wrought-iron, gated entrance, decorative foyer columns, carved staircases, diamond-patterned leaded glass windows, raw stone fireplace mantels, and a copper farmhouse sink. There are also incredibly intricate cut-wood flooring in the entryway and first-floor office.

The most indulgent feature of this house is the heated outdoor pool (and maybe the basement sauna). There’s a secluded cabana on the far end and the surrounding walls are covered in vines. Off to the side, there’s an outdoor kitchen equipped with a grill and a stone fireplace.

Located at 6087 North Kirkwood Avenue, this home is listed for $1,599,000.

The property sits on an extra wide lot.
Beautiful stained glass windows and carved staircase.
The office has square cut patterns in the wood flooring.
A cozy wood-burning fireplace heats up the living room.
The master bedroom also has a walk-in closet.
