An E.B. Green-designed mansion in Eggertsville that was the first home outside Buffalo to serve as a Decorators' Show House has sold for $1.15 million.
Ronald Serio on Thursday sold the 9,000-square-foot, French Provincial Revival-style mansion on LeBrun Road to Siamak Amirghodsi and Sumita Das, according to public records.
Known as the David Wallace Estate, the three-story home and carriage house were completed in 1929. The 2.4-acre property remains one of the larger lots on LeBrun Road.
James Coppola, a founder of Len-Co Lumber, and his wife, Josephine, bought the home in 1964 and lived there for decades. The Junior League selected the home as its 2009 Show House.
Serio, who manages rental properties in the area, purchased the property in 2011 and made substantial renovations to the home, said his mother, Sandra.
"It's a beautiful neighborhood, it's a beautiful home," Sandra Serio said.
The listing by Rhoades Real Estate boasts the home has marble flooring and original tile work throughout; crown molding and cherry cabinets; granite countertops, a Thermador stove and Sub-Zero refrigerator in the kitchen; a grand foyer leading to the formal dining, living and sitting rooms; French doors that open to an outdoor patio, pool, hot tub and court for tennis and basketball; a master bedroom suite with fireplace, Jacuzzi tub and steam room; a movie room; and a bar and game room.
Rhoades listed the home for just under $1.5 million. James Rhoades said he couldn't comment on the sale or the parties involved.
The buyers could not be reached for comment. A couple of the same name lives in the Chicago area, where Amirghodsi has worked as an executive in the financial services industry.
