Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty Lists Historic Larchmont Victorian and Former Home of Red Sox Owner Harry H. Frazee


Thoughtfully updated antique residence includes every amenity for a 21st century lifestyle

Larchmont, N.Y. (May 23, 2016) — Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty today announced that the firm has listed a Victorian home in Larchmont, N.Y., with a rich history of prominent past ownership, including former Boston Red Sox owner Harry H. Frazee. The residence, which is ideally located just a short stroll from Larchmont’s downtown, is listed with Larchmont agent Arlene Gibbs, and offered at $2,993,000.

The earliest known records of the house date back to 1901. In 1911, John A. Hoagland purchased the home with a trust left to him by his father, who was the founder and powerhouse behind the Royal Baking Powder Company. After living in the residence for many years, Hoagland sold the house to former Boston Red Sox owner Harry H. Frazee, who purchased the property with the cash he received after trading Babe Ruth to the New York Yankees. During his years of residency, Frazee sold the Red Sox, produced the Broadway hit “No, no, Nanette” and commissioned the construction of several theatres. Frazee eventually sold the property to Daniele Kussel, another Broadway figure, who deeded the house to his mother and brother Milton. Milton lived in the house for 47 years.

Admired for its curb appeal and exceptional Victorian details, 59 Edgewood Avenue rests on nearly an acre of pristinely kept land just a short walk from downtown shopping and dining, the Larchmont Farmer’s Market and Murray Avenue School. The seven-bedroom, five and a half-bath residence maintains an abundance of its original architecture, while also providing up-to-date, modern amenities such as a fully updated country-style kitchen with an original butler’s pantry, and remodeled baths. Among its many special features, individuals will find a glass enclosed wrap-around front porch, porte-cochere, uniquely coffered and plastered ceilings, stone fireplaces, and a third floor great room, perfect for casual family gatherings. The 5,554 square-foot residence offers an open floor plan with generously sized rooms and an overall spacious feel.

“This beautifully designed, well preserved historic home is a treasured trophy property,” said Gibbs. “From its ideal location near Larchmont’s ever-bustling downtown, to its impressive list of past ownership, there are so many reasons to choose this home—it is truly a must-see.”
