36 Lowther Avenue

House of the week: 36 Lowther Avenue

The first time to market in over 30 years, the queen of Lowther Avenue makes her mark at $9,495,000. 36 Lowther Ave., a four bedroom majestic property in the Annex, is a must-see, even at the hefty asking price.

Owned by a local artist, the entire 5,000 square foot space is enchanting and romantic with pastel ceilings and wood carvings. The whimsical home is what you'd imagine the inside of a gingerbread house to look like.

36 Lowther Avenue

The historic homes on Lowther Ave. were built in the late 1800s, and number 36 was first occupied by the prominent Baldwin family. The red-brick facade and some of the interior still resemble its original self, like a well-preserved nineteenth century time capsule.

It's a well-loved home, no doubt. There's a grand mahogany multi-level staircase and classic powder rooms instead of modern bathrooms. The original fireplaces, stained glass windows and vaulted ceilings have been maintained over the years, and the third floor loft features wrap-around windows and a balcony.

GOOD FOR

Eclectic art collectors or a very wealthy family. It's pricier than other homes on the street, and requires a buyer or family -- there's plenty of room --with money and adventurous taste.

MOVE ON IF

You need additional bedrooms. Even a sprawling house like this one, you might expect more than four beds and baths. While the rooms are impressive, a few upgrades might be required, even after shelling out almost $9.5 million.
