BRONXVILLE, N.Y. – Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty announced the firm has listed an historic, Mediterranean-style estate in the village of Bronxville.
The residence, constructed by renowned architect Charles Lewis Bowman, is represented by Bronxville agent Kathleen Collins, and offered at $5,595,000.
The estate, perched on the hillside of a private village road, was built in 1926 by the award- winning architect during a thriving time in Bronxville’s history.
Bowman is most known for his design of “Old Mill Farm,” a stone manor Greenwich, Conn. estate previously owned by actor Mel Gibson, and marketed and sold by Sotheby’s International Realty.
The home was selected by The Bronxville Historical Conservancy, which annually highlights one of the village’s historic homes with a tour for community members. The home has a total of 13 rooms, each with distinct Mediterranean features and style. The living room, which boasts many of Bowman’s original design details, contains a vaulted beamed ceiling, grand fireplace, herringbone floors, original capiz shell sconces and leaded glass French doors.
Original features are replete throughout the first-floor library, dining room and solarium, which affords enjoyment of the surrounding outdoor beauty from a protective, interior space.
Noted landscape architect Renee Byers helped the owners transform the original grounds, adding an expansive terrace that is easily accessible from all the main first-floor living spaces and provides views of the beautifully landscaped garden.
“This gracious, beautifully restored home is an exquisite residential landmark in the charming village of Bronxville,” Collins said. “The property represents a rare opportunity to own an extraordinary estate rich in history and only a short distance from Manhattan. I am thrilled to be representing such a magnificent property.”
