Florsheim mansion on the Gold Coast sells for $1.25M
The sale brings to a close an 11-year effort by seller Russ Rosenzweig to sell the five-bedroom, 4,500-square-foot Art Moderne-style mansion, which was built in 1938 and sold by Rebori to shoe heiress and sculptor Lillian Florsheim in 1946. Constructed as a single-family house with a separate guesthouse, the mansion was expanded in the 1950s by Goldberg, who was Florsheim’s son-in-law. Goldberg designed a link between the two structures in the form of a long, galley-style kitchen that now provides indoor access to both the kitchen and the guesthouse. Of late, the mansion has been used as a single-family house and as a bed-and-breakfast inn.
