Former Larchmont home of renowned sculptor C. Paul Jennewein for sale
Larchmont, N.Y. – March 10, 2015 – Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty announced today that the firm has listed a historic 1912 Colonial estate in Larchmont, N.Y., which was owned by the renowned Art Deco sculptor C. Paul Jennewein from 1926 to 1978. Larchmont agent Diana Schwatka and Rye agent Alix Prince represent the property, which is offered at $2,198,000.
The five-bedroom, 3,415 square-foot home has been updated to seamlessly blend its meticulously preserved charm and old world elegance with luxurious 21st century upgrades. Jennewein’s artistic footprint is evident throughout the property today, from the two-story light-filled living room with 12-foot windows, designed in the early 1930s to showcase his works, to the sculptures that adorn the outside patio and the front entrance, and to the specially commissioned stained glass panels that are set in the front door.
A new state-of-the-art kitchen, completed in 2014, represents the finest in German design and functionality, with sleek Leicht cabinetry, integrated storage systems, and top-of-the-line Miele appliances. The redesigned master suite includes a new spa-like bathroom as well as a spacious dressing room incorporating his-and-hers walk-in closets. All new hydro air heating and air conditioning systems were installed in 2012, ensuring year-round comfort.
Other features include two fireplaces, a library, formal dining room, hardwood floors, and almost ¾ acre of idyllic outdoor space. Expertly designed landscaping includes a true English-style cottage garden, with fragrant wisteria, roses, hydrangeas, and boxwood plantings. A koi pond, fountain, rock walls and terraces, and meandering pathways, all original to the home, have been faithfully restored.
“The property is truly magnificent,” said Schwatka. “Its atmosphere and features are sophisticated and well-suited for entertaining, yet still cozy enough for family life. I look forward to showcasing its unique and extraordinary qualities and features.”
“If you’re looking for a private oasis in a convenient location, 11 Serpentine Trail is the place for you,” said Prince. “The exquisite Larchmont home rests just steps away from the train and town, and is only 17 miles from Manhattan. Diana and I are proud to be representing such a remarkable, historic home in this prime location.”
