If you’re an architectural buff, this might be the place you’re looking for – if you can stomach the price. 75 Glen Edyth Drive, also known as Villa Charax, is a neo-classical, Greek revival house designed by Yale professor of architecture Demetri Porphyrios, who’s kind of a big deal when it comes to these types of places. Despite the notable architecture, Villa Charax languished on the market for two years when it was last on the market in 2010 $4,998,000. It’s back on the market with Jimmy Malloy this time for $8,800,000.
Clad in luxurious materials like marble, oak, walnut, and porphyry (that purple stuff you either love or hate) – the four bedroom, four bathroom home is massive at around 12,060 sq. ft.. There’s some great features in this home including a kitchen with floor-to-ceiling storage, a library, and a great backyard that really completes the urban villa feel.
