An Ohio real estate listing is going viral for its opulent architectural flair and a hefty price tag to match.
Located right on the Maumee River, the mansion took four years to build and was completed in 2007. While more than a decade has passed since construction of the house was completed, the riverside castle has been left empty for the most part. of that time.
Despite owner Bradley Delp’s glamorous renovations, including $6 million in construction costs, Insider reported that the family only lived in the waterfront property for two years before moving to Florida, leaving the house vacant in the decade since.
“It took four years to build the new house because there was an existing house on the lot that we had to tear down,” Delp told the outlet. Additional costs and time were incurred for custom furniture and interior furnishings.
Listing records at Reatlor.com show the house has been listed multiple times since 2018, with an initial listing of nearly $4 million in 2018 before it was reduced to the current price of $2.5 million. The Effler/Schmitt Co. listing even boasts that the house is priced at less than half the construction price of the house.
Occupying a 1.17-acre parcel, the property is spread over 18 rooms, including six bedrooms, six full baths, and two half baths. According to a brochure provided to TODAY by the Effler/Schmitt Co., authentic marble is featured throughout the home, including five marble fireplaces, as well as large columns in the kitchen that support a custom brick umbrella ceiling.
The main entrance of the house leads guests through a huge double door that leads to a floating staircase entrance. Above the stairs is a Revolutionary War mural.
Other property amenities include an elevator that travels from the basement to the second floor master suite. That suite includes a two-story walk-in closet spanning 1,800 square feet and a covered porch.
The basement also includes a guest bedroom and en-suite bathroom, as well as a children’s playroom, home theater room and wine cellar.
When it comes to out-of-home amenities, the home features an in-ground pool with an adjacent hot tub, a stone golf cart path, a fire pit, plus a deep-water boardwalk.
