"Roslyn"

1035 Marietta Avenue, Lancaster, PA 17603

One of my all-time favorite properties was just listed by my colleague, Anne Pyle, of Long & Foster Real Estate Inc.  This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a historic, Marietta Avenue mansion.  "Roslyn" was built in 1896 by celebrated Lancaster architect, C. Emlen Urban.  Mr. Urban was also the designer of many city properties including, but not limited to, Central Market, the Griest Building, Watt & Shand (the soon-to-be convention center) and the Theological Seminary.  This beautiful home is listed on the Lancaster County Historical Sites Register as a "Significant Level I" site, meaning the property is "exceptional" or of top importance.

This beautiful home was commissioned by Peter T. Watt, co-founder of Watt & Shand.  Mr. Watt presented the property to his wife, Laura, on her birthday.  The property remained owned by members of the Watt family for over 70 years.  The current owners purchased the home in 1974.

Origninally priced at $4,999,999, now reduced to $2,999,999! "Roslyn" is an exquistie 9,320 sq. ft. mansion.  This spectacular home features 8 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, original stained glass windows and a turret that any princess would dream of.  It is situated on a large, landscaped, corner lot that is over 2 acres and includes a 4 car (+) carriage house complete with a large, 2,000 sq. ft. apartment.  "Roslyn" is a true gem that has been lovingly maintained in all of her original glory.

Please give me a call today to view this beautiful home.  All prospective buyers must be pre-qualified.

I was always very intrigued by this house.  Thanks for sharing a picture of the inside.  It really is just as beautiful as I thought it would be

What is the status of this property? What would it take legally for someone to turn it into a B&B?

Thelma Beaston Eshelman passed away this week. She will be missed! Thelma and her husband Lester loved living in this great mansion. Lester still is residing here! This home is beautiful. I always loved visiting

I am a neighbor and was saddened to learn of Mrs. Eshelman's passing in December. Today I see a public auction is scheduled for the antiques and personal property in a few weeks. Such a beautiful property! It is a shame to see so many of the furnishings that are probably original to the house being sold.

It is a spectacular property,especially since the landscaping work was done several years ago so that one can see the property to great advantage. I hope someone who loves that property will buy it and cherish it. It is a wonderful landmark!

I just viewed this home yesterday . It needs a tremendous amount of work to bring it to a condition to live in. But the wood work and the stone are truly priceless . The taxes are 34k a year! It is a great home for someone that needs a project! The size lots is great as well.
