A beautiful historic home with its own 40-foot swimming pool has come to the market for the first time in more than half a century.
The sizeable five bedroom property is located on a suburban seaside street where homes are rarely for sale. The rare gem sits on a ‘picturesque’ lot on Mossgiel Avenue in Ainsdale, where the last neighboring lot was sold in 2013.
In addition to three bathrooms and its own pond, it also has a detached barn and a garden room with a huge indoor pool. The house was occupied by the same family and guests are greeted through decorative iron gates onto a sweeping gravel driveway to enjoy the majesty of the double walled historic home
