It's no pagoda, but there's another interesting property located on the former grounds of the Forest Glen Seminary that's recently been put on the market (along with the Swiss chalet). Clearly, this one needs some serious elbow grease. On paper, $272K for a 2,015 square foot house in that neighborhood sounds great, but it's pretty evident from the photos that you might have to put just as much or more money into making it habitable.
I don't know how to best describe the style, but the Realtor site simply calls it "Colonial House", as you can see from this (circa 1999 cellphone?) photo:
The house's windows are beautiful:
The main entryway is particularly nice:
The one major problem I would have with living here is the abandoned hallway that leads directly into to the second floor of the house. Seriously, if there is a poltergeist and/or serial killer trying to get into my home, I know exactly where they'll be entering from.
I think it would make compelling programming on HGTV or a similar network if they spent a season or more covering a series of restorations of all these unique seminary properties. I would say TLC could do it, but unless Sarah Palin is going to lead the renovations using a crew of midget workmen, that channel probably wouldn't be interested. I kid, Discovery employees, but you know I'm kind of right. (For what it's worth, I would actually tune in for that.)
