Ian grew up in this 2,800-square-foot home that was built in 1957. His dad passed away in January, and Ian is selling it on behalf of his father's estate. Ian says:

"The main room has a soaring ceiling, like 30 feet with big glass windows. The master bedroom on the first floor is massive, with 15-foot ceilings, large floor space and a walk-in closet. The master bath has a walk-in shower, a Jacuzzi tub and his-and-hers sinks. . . . The hardwood floors throughout the first floor were recently refinished. The first floor has the kitchen, dining room, living room, library and a master bedroom. The second floor has three bedrooms plus another master bedroom and a total of two full baths. . . . The fully finished basement has a private entrance. It could be used as a home office or living quarters for a nanny. . . . The property has nice trees. I loved playing in the woods when I was a kid. Hole 6 of the North Shore Country Club is across the street. It's a great view."
