The historic Merritt Mansion was built for Hulett C. Merritt, one of the nation's most celebrated millionaires. Mr. Merritt was represented on title by the Mesabi Company, one of his many businesses when he purchased the parcel in 1903, and built the residence in 1905 as a winter home for his family. In 1956, the late Mr. Merritt's estate sold the house and over six acres of its grounds to Herbert Armstrong and became part of Ambassador College, an academic institution run by the Worldwide Church of God. This spectacular property features original exterior detailing, and 3 stories including original mahogany wood paneling on the first and second floors, and a fully built-out basement with multiple rooms and an indoor swimming pool. The formal East Garden showcases stunning and expansive grounds designed by the famed landscape architect Garrett Eckbo. Property offers access to the shared amenities of the Ambassador Gardens community, including the swimming pool and 2.1 acre Great Lawn. Property sold AS-IS. Do not miss your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own and recreate a new chapter for this iconic estate!
