4621 Waldo Avenue: Bronx's Mediterranean Mansion For $3.9 Million (PHOTOS)

Via Ever daydream of buying a giant house in Italy with a stucco exterior and a sun-drenched balcony? Turns out you may need not look further than the Bronx.

Fieldston, one of the five borough's wealthiest neighborhoods, is home to one of New York's only Mediterranean mansions.

Nestled in trees and surrounded by a garden, it's hardly believable the home is, according to the listing, a mere "15 minute drive from the UWS of Manhattan."

The 1928 manse was designed by Dwight James Baum, the celebrated American architect known largely for his work on the stunning Ca d'Zan on the Florida coast, built for one of the Ringling Brothers.

Mediterranean features include wood beams, ceramic and terra cotta tile.

WIth 14 rooms and a balcony, the 8,000 square foot mansion at 4621 Waldo Avenue is being sold as a single family home with an asking price of $3.9 million. The listing has been up for 182 days and the price already reduced.

Take a look below.
