This Victorian landmark sits on .35 acres and overlooks Manor Park with remarkable views of the Sound and Harbor. The home sports a wraparound porch, pergola-topped dining terrace, and a box-like exterior. The property, previously known as The Bevan House, was established in 1891 and was once a famed hotel resort which accommodated A-list celebrities. Clients included the Barrymore family, Eleanor Roosevelt, Douglas Fairbanks, and Babe Ruth. It was restored to a single-family home in the 1980s.
Inside this Larchmont home sits four renovated bedrooms that embody the architectural details of the past while incorporating modern updates. The open floor plan allows for ample space for effortless living and entertainment.
The home has a conjoined library and music room, along with a chef’s kitchen which opens up into the family and breakfast room with a domed ceiling. The second floor is where you will find the primary suite with a walk-in closet. The top floor occupies the great room, lounge, anteroom with barrel ceilings, and study with beamed ceilings and a full bath.
Selling points: If the Victorian aesthetic and manicured grounds don’t draw you in, the spacious kitchen and open floorplan certainly will.
