"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.
