One hundred one years ago, noted British antiques dealer and adventurer, Arthur S. Vernay shipped an original Tudor manor from England to parkland in Ossining, New York.
Now the Teatown Lake Reservation is asking for someone to buy and move the historic home once again. The nature reserve, which simple can’t afford to maintain the home, is asking a mere $125,000 for the 8,000-square-foot mansion, which includes 14th-century fireplaces, timbered ceilings, and wrought-iron door, according to Curbed.
But it will take a multi-millionaire to move the beast. “In a perfect world, we could afford to fix the house and find a use for it, but our responsibility is to a thousand acres of woodlands, not a single house,” the director of the preserve told the New York Times. [Curbed] – Christopher Cameron
