HOME OF THE WEEK

Your home is you castle, and this home is a castle

He’s known not only for the fantastic homes he designed in Fieldston, but also in popular Florida communities like Temple Terrace and Sarasota at the height of the Roaring ‘20s.

Dwight James Baum was an architect who set the tone for modern home building, and any chance to move into a house he designed doesn’t come along often.

But you’re in luck. Baum designed this grand six-bedroom, five full- and two half-bathroom stone and stucco mansion at 404 W. 246th St., in 1929. Graced with a castle-like turret and decorative brick highlights, this home enjoys an inviting wraparound patio and garden.

Standout features include a gracious center hall, living room with beamed ceiling and a wood-burning fireplace, spacious family room and library with floor-to-ceiling windows, and a circular formal dining room in the turret.

The center island eat-in kitchen is outfitted with granite counter tops and double sinks, as well as wall ovens and dishwashers.

The master bedroom suite comes with a gas fireplace, walk-through dressing room with abundant closets, and a master bathroom with whirlpool tub and separate glass-enclosed shower.

There’s also a fitness room, sauna, finished basement with recreation room, and maid’s quarters.

All of it is topped with a Spanish tile roof. Outside you’ll find an attached two-car garage, with everything sitting on a little less than half an acre.

Dwight James Baum didn’t design for just anyone. But he designed this home with you in mind. You can seal that deal for $2.995 million.
