Special Features:
The Bridges Timken Mansion, designed by architect Walter Webber for Amelia Timken Bridges and Appleton Shaw Bridges in 1913 is just as grand and elegant today as it was a century ago. The estate features an ornate semicircular solarium with eye-catching green and black terrazzo floors and marble pillars. A remodel in the 1990's restored the home's original character, defined by crystal light fixtures and chandeliers, custom sconces, crown moldings, wainscoting and banisters. The main floor includes the living room, formal dining room, family room, powder room, kitchen, and a bedroom suite with private entrance. The master bedroom upstairs features a fireplace, second solarium, and a private deck with city, bay and ocean views. Downstairs, find a recreation room, wine cellar and utility room. The home also includes a regulation size tennis court with a spectators' patio and terraced flower gardens.
