Frank Furness’ Lainshaw Is Now on the Market
Designed in 1878 by famed Victorian architect Frank Furness, Lainshaw has the advantage of period charm that has been entirely renovated for modern convenience. The historic home sits on a darling, tree-lined lane and combines historic elements like trim and wainscoting with updates like a dual-bath en-suite in the master and a private meditation area.
The kitchen is probably the most modern of all the rooms in the 6,000-square-foot-plus home, having been updated with the usual high-end appliances, cabinetry and countertops. The first floor also features a wood-paneled library as well as a butler’s pantry. Upstairs the master includes a dressing room and two en-suite bathrooms. The study on the second floor overlooks the original Lainshaw nursery in the yard. The meditation space is also upstairs, alongside a laundry room as well as a media room (let’s hope they’re on separate ends of the hall).
A patio is accessible by French doors from the living room and the property also includes substantial landscaping. We had to look twice to be sure this home didn’t have a white picket fence because it seems like it ought to.
