Location: Bronxville, New York
Completed by Gilded Age architect William Augustus Bates in 1902, this stately manse combines Queen Anne and Shingle styles in Bronxville, New York, and incorporates a stone and shingle facade, slate roof, stone turret, and wraparound porch—and that’s just on the outside.
Measuring nearly 7,000 square feet, the corner home in the neighborhood of Lawrence Park opens with a magnificent two-story great room with a dramatic staircase leading up to a gallery balcony, stained glass windows, and a stone fireplace flanked by columns. Topping it all off is a glorious skylight—made of stained glass.
From this central space unfurl many more delights, including an octagonal paneled library, a cozy family room with its own fireplace, and a double-height dining room with massive stained glass windows, grand fireplace, a painted and vaulted ceiling, even a minstrel’s balcony.
Upstairs, a five ensuite bedrooms are found off the gallery landing, while two additional sleeping quarters and a bath are found above that. Located at 7 Valley Road just outside Manhattan, it’s offered at $4.2 million.
