A Quarter Million Above Ask

This Tudor home in AU Park, with a history of hosting parties for upwards of 200 people, also attracted the attention of a number of buyers when it went on the market. It went under contract after just a few days in October, and sold last week for $250,000 above the original list price. A circular glass atrium with heated stone flooring, tilted glass skylights and a door to a rear garden may be the centerpiece of the home. On the lower level, there's a full bathroom and a large, carpeted living space that could function as a movie room. Upstairs, one of the bedrooms has stairs leading up to a fully finished a-frame attic space with two windows for natural light. The primary suite has an en-suite bathroom with teal tile work.
