Welcome to the 'Moody Mansion', a local landmark with a fascinating history and a stunning example of Queen Anne Victorian architecture and impressive late 1800's craftsmanship. Leonard Moody was an East Pittston native who grew up farming and cutting wood in the mid 1800s. He married a woman from New York, moved there, and became the leading real estate broker in Brooklyn. The home served as the Moody family 'summer cottage' until it was sold in 1905. At the time, newspapers cited the home as being the finest in the county, with no expenses or luxuries spared during the design and construction. According to the National Register of Historic Places, 'the Moody Mansion retains the scale and stylistic features that invoke the leisure ethic as expressed in Maine at the turn of the twentieth century' and 'continues to be an intact example of a well designed, upperclass summer cottage.' Incredible high ceilings, giant rooms with beautiful custom fireplaces, ornate trim, gorgeous crown moulding, arched doorways and a grand entrance are some of the unique features to appreciate while inside. A newer heating system, exterior wall reinsulation, and lots of newer windows can be easy to miss while appreciating the interior of the home but will have a substantial impact when it is time to pay utility bills! The chance to purchase a home like this does not come about often. Simply put, 'they don't build 'em like this anymore.' Also offered for $750,000 with 3.7 acres of additional, beautiful land (5.7 total), including frontage on the Eastern River and a large chicken barn.
