30 Turning Mill Rd will be coming on the market.


"This is one of only 2 Lucy Rapaport designed homes in the Turning Mill neighborhood and it is beautifully updated and maintained. It is approximately 3000 sf of living space with a full basement that includes a den and a large woodworking shop where a former owner designed and made fine contemporary furniture. The house has 5 bedrooms and 3 1/2 bathrooms. An expansion to the house resulted in a large master suite with bedroom, bathroom and sitting area. Below the master suite, a dining room and family room are open to the kitchen. The woodworking shop is below the addition spaces.

The current . The house is in excellent condition and has all newer windows. The property also has a 2-car garage and parking for at least 3 other cars. The house is set approximately 100 feet from the street allowing mature plantings to create wonderful screening and privacy. The rear of the property opens to a woodland setting which is one of the characteristic hallmarks of the Turning Mill neighborhood - a unique enclave of approximately 150 architect designed mid-century homes. The woodland divide that exists between Turning Mill Rd and Demar Rd is essentially a private forest. The .76 acre, 33,000 sf lot is typical for the Turning Mill neighborhood. The former owners, Carol and Jules Siegel, lived in and cared for the house for almost 50 years.

Maintenance and Upgrades

If you are thinking of selling your home remember two things:

1) Put it on the market - don't make a private sale to a builder. We've looked at the numbers and you will always make more on the open market.

2) People will pay the most money when they love your home - not when they want to tear it down.
