Brewster Estate with 5 Tennis Courts Can't Find a Buyer


Behold, a Brewster estate with five tennis courts. Built in 1861 for a blacksmith by the name of Zoeth Snow, the 10.68 acre property more recently spent over 30 years as the Bamburgh House Tennis Club, which explains the fab five. Post-game, set, match, the 7,700 square foot Victorian-style main house was given a full nip and tuck. Per the listing, "A restoration and addition was finished in December 2010," although it looks more like a renovation to our eyes. Regardless, there are now four en suite bedrooms, reclaimed oak floors, a new foundation, and a fancy looking heating and cooling system. In addition to the plethora of tennis courts, there's also a two-story barn and garage. The listing, "Sold as is," hit the market in December 2012 for $1,997,200, but was chopped the very next day to $1,972,000. Almost a year later, the ask remains the same.
