The past is built into the walls of a historic house. You can’t miss it—the charming appeal of stepping back in time as you enter into its ageless architectural character. Such is the case with Julia B. Sotheby’s International Realty’s listing of an Eastlake Victorian residence in the Fox Meadow area of Scarsdale, N.Y. Scarsdale Agents Angela Retelny and Janice Rothman have the listing, which is offered at $2,499,999.
The current homeowners believe the house, better known as “The Maples,” was constructed in 1875. It rests on a flat and spacious 1.2-acre lot, an extremely rare size for the Fox Meadow area. Upon entering the 3,726 square-foot residence, visitors are greeted by a front porch that epitomizes old world appeal, followed by tremendous ten-foot ceilings, original plaster walls, double crown moldings, and parquet hardwood floors.
A front-to-back entrance hall has a French door that views the grounds and brings in the light, illuminating the exquisite beauty of this home. The center hall layout includes a large living room that adds to the endearing atmosphere with its wood-burning fireplace and multiple tall windows that have property views. Additional living spaces include a parlor room that could serve as a family room, formal dining room with space for large-scale entertaining, and a renovated eat-in kitchen. Cook delicious meals surrounded by brand new white cabinetry, an island with cooktop and granite countertops, stainless-steel commercial appliances, and exposed brick wall with a wood-burning fireplace, original to the home.
The magnificence of this house doesn’t end there. Venture upstairs to enjoy a large master suite with its own bath, large closet space and sitting room with views, as well as two additional bedrooms. The residence even has a third floor with four bedrooms and two updated full baths. With plenty of living space, family and friends can surely stay the night to fully appreciate all this home has to offer. A three-car detached garage is located at the rear of the property.
“This spectacular Victorian is a rare treasure ideally located in the heart of Old Scarsdale,” said Retelny. “I am excited to have the opportunity to market this exceptional listing.”
“Showcasing expansive and grand interiors, this home is a true gem,” said Rothman. “This property is an excellent find for the discerning buyer.”
Both proud realtors clearly speak the truth. “The Maples” home is even conveniently located within close proximity to Scarsdale Village, the train station, Scarsdale Public Library, Scarsdale High School and Fox Meadow Elementary School. Travels are simple and living is effortless at this one-of-a-kind Victorian home.
