Too Late to Get 17 Tudor for $850K?

One of Buffalo’s most distinctive residences, on one of Buffalo’s most elite streets is up for sale. But, you might be too late to get your paws on this beauty located at 17 Tudor Place.  The 135 year old house has 14 rooms in almost 6,000 sf, including six bathrooms, five bedrooms, a den, library, sun porch, and eight fireplaces wrapped in lots of charming architectural detail. It is asking $850,000 but is noted to have a contract pending after 161 days on the market.

Here is the realtor’s pitch:  

E. B. Green and Sanford Wicks designed residence situated on one of the Delaware Districts finest streets. Gracious foyer, architectural details, 8 fireplaces (NRTC), large eat-in kitchen, solarium, family room, hardwood floors, gorgeous staircase, finished 3rd floor, beautiful elevated flagstone terrace overlooking private large grounds, Other rooms are Solarium (22×11) & reception room (26 x 13) and butler’s pantry (19×10); third floor rooms 27×13 & 14×12. Pim Faust designed driveway, 2 car garage and porte cochere.

The historic image included here shows how the house originally looked. At some point the original Green and Wicks design was traded in for the current Tudor style exterior.  I don’t know how much of the interior was reconfigured. While the  mortgage, at a little over 3 grand a month might not be be too much of a lift for a well endowed buyer, the property also comes with a yearly real estate tax bill of just under $17,800 a year.  With the new Trump tax law only 10 grand of that payment will deductible starting in 2018. That leaves the remaining seventy eight hundred plus your state tax payments as federally taxable. Still, it is an elegant house, on a gorgeous lot, lush with vegetation, which gives the feeling of a country estate, but fully ensconced in the heart of the city’s most popular neighborhood.  It is truly one of the best pieces of property in the city.

    Beautiful but every room needs work.

      ..and the fake half-timbered/stucco re-do of genuine American Shingle Style is lame

      • Captain Picard

        Then it’s your lucky day seeing as you likely can’t afford this home and thus won’t ever have to degrade yourself by living in it.

        Only capt prickard can make these types of comments..

          You are so fortunate that we live in an age of enlightenment and social justice. If this were the 1950s you’d be righteously confined to the outdoor cages of the Richardson Complex. If I were a Republican I’d call that scenario “The Good ‘Ol Days.” But I’m not, so I’ll just call you a moron.

      It’s definitely a cash-out. Chimneys need work, electrical looks old, roof may need replacing, carpeting needs to go, painting, woodwork needs refinishing. What does the kitchen and bathrooms look like?

      • Captain Picard

        Yes, a cash-out that benefits both buyer and seller. Seller gets a nice pile of dough without having to lift a finger, and buyer gets a $1.2 million property for enough of a discount to transform it into whatever he or she wants. Everybody wins–except the envious jerkoffs on BRO, of course.

          And yet you keep on reading..your time of the month?

          • Captain Picard

            Yes, it’s my time of the month Mr. Asperger.

          • Kevin Ryan

            Lol.. prickard

          • Captain Picard

            You forgot your go-to insults: “LOSER” and “IDIOT.”

            Merriam Webster publishes a great thesaurus. Here’s a handy reference guide:

            Such a sad little man.. prickard.. lol

          • Kevin Ryan
          • Captain Picard

            I’m familiar with Wikipedia, Mr. Asperger.

            A get-together of commenters might prove to be a fascinating meeting, but only if it’s captured on video. Who are you, why do you care, why are you the way you are, etc …

          • Kevin Ryan

            One of prickards minions..lol

          • nuvaux

            prick-limp more likely ,

          Compare it to the Grand Island property that recently sold for $1.5 million. Who got the better deal?

          • Captain Picard

            The Grand Island property you reference is easily worth $1.5 million. Only provincial losers who don’t have a snowball’s chance in Hell of ever affording such digs would frame such a sale price as anything other than a bargain.

  • Ivan Putski Jr

    too big for me but that price seems like a bargain for the EV. I never thought I would ever see houses on Baynes going for $300+

  • breckenridge

    There are more pictures on Zillow. Beautiful house, a great opportunity for someone with deep pockets and ability/cash to do a lot of work.
