Park LaneWhen you’re looking for the perfect Christmas house, it probably doesn’t come more perfect than the 1939 estate at 4906 Park Lane.

The 4.9-acre property is beautiful inside and out, and is regularly spoken of with superlatives like stunning, beautiful, and exquisite.

The home has been extensively revamped by Carol Boerder-Snyder and Will Snyder, but with an eye toward beautifully preserving the most impressive original features of the home. There are plenty of fireplaces to choose from for hanging stockings at Christmas, and enough space to easily display multiple Christmas trees, too. (more…)

Now if that is not enough pedigree let’s add another ingredient into the mix — sellers with extraordinary taste.
