Proudly presenting 434 West Downer Place, referred to as the Copley Mansion. Built for Colonel Ira Clifton Copley, (the founder of Copley Press and a member of the U.S. House of Representatives) in 1917, this historic home is spectacular. The current owners have revived and improved this home, preserving the vision, craftsmanship, and amazing detail of the original architect (Jarvis Hunt), and the artisans who build this stately home. From the minute you step in you will be captivated. It IS everything you hoped it would be! Notice the expansive rooms, the soaring ceilings, the exquisite plasterwork, the detailed crown molding, the never ending sweeping mahogany staircase, the period fixtures, the marble fireplaces (4), the library featuring built in bookshelves with leaded glass doors, the updated kitchen with professional grade appliances, the WOW butlers pantry...and oh, so very much more. The original hardwood floors are in perfect condition, the paint colors are exactly the right choices, this mansion really is a home. There are at least 7 bedrooms (if needed two additional rooms could be bedrooms), three full baths and three half baths. This home even has a hat room just off the library. The piazza is a lovely place to relax in the evenings, and as you would expect in a residence of this era, the third floor makes an excellent ballroom! (Current owners used it as as a game room) Naturally there is a balcony off of the ballroom atop the front dramatic portico. The home's exterior walls are 2x8 with full brick exterior. Interior walls are largely still plaster, and are 8 inches thick. There are 9 air conditioning units and 9 furnaces. The home features 800 amp service. Owning the Copley Mansion is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity.
