Park-like tract of nearly 5 acres w/ 3 contiguous homesites offers possibility of a one-of-a-kind estate compound. The historic house was built by Tanglewood developer William Farrington for his family. Non-connecting Spring Park St. cul-de-sac has only these three addresses and 1 entrance/exit from Rocky River Rd, creating seclusion and exclusivity. Great opportunity to combine three large Tanglewood lots (6.61 acres combined). The sale of 5345 Spring Park is contingent upon the simultaneous sale of 5353 Spring Park and 5360 Spring Park. Combined lots would make the largest lot in Tanglewood, combining the three lots should be verified with the Tanglewood Homes Association.
