Historic "Cobble Court" on market for 4.5 Million!

If you have a few million to spare the Historic "Cobble Court"5555 Drake Road, in prestigious Indian Hills has gone on the Market for 4.5+ Million Dollars,( a relative bargain) and is listed by Sibcy Cline, 513-321-9922. This property was previously offered at over 8.7 million dollars by another real estate company.

The French Normand Country Estate was designed by internationally known Architect Grosvenor Atterbury, who worked in the offices of McKim, Mead & White. Much of Atterbury’s early work consisted of weekend houses for wealthy industrialists.

The mansion built in 1933 has a two-story library wing called the Canterbury room which features raised quotations in stone above the fireplace from Chaucer, Dante and Shakespeare and looks like an English great hall. The home is approximately 13,000 square feet and sits on nine acres. There are nine bedrooms total and the home includes all sorts of stained glass, carved stone and wood details . This is a treasure from another era that could not be duplicated today for anywhere near the asking price.
