A Victorian estate in suburban
New York, with a a few-bedroom guesthouse and far more than 500 toes of personal frontage on Extensive Island Audio is established to hit the marketplace on Friday for $11.3 million.
If it sells at that rate, it will established an all-time record for the Westchester County village—about 15 miles northeast of Manhattan. The next highest sale in Larchmont would be this exact 1898 home on Park Avenue when it was bought to the current homeowners for $10.4 million in 2006, according to the listing agent and product sales data on PropertyShark.
The 8,182-sq.-foot house has 7 bedrooms, six total loos and two partial bathrooms. It sits on 1.64 acres that are adjacent to the village’s Manor Park, which is acknowledged for its legendary waterfront gazebo on what is identified as Umbrella Stage.
“To have 1.6 acres in the coronary heart of Larchmont Manor, that’s just amazing,” explained listing agent Mimi Magarelli, of Julia B Payment Sotheby’s Global Realty. “It’s built to give you the utmost privacy.”
The estate, which sits on a lush promontory higher than the shoreline, options a big swimming pool and spa, a deep-h2o dock, a jetty and an area for swimming or launching compact watercraft.
Curiously, the web page was the 1-time “home” of the famous Hoboken Turtle Club, which was founded in 1796 by John Stevens, a previous Continental Military captain whose prized chickens at his Hoboken, New Jersey., riverfront estate have been getting poached by snapping turtles, in accordance to released reports. To get rid of them, he started an special club whose associates, which involved George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, would satisfy periodically to dine on turtle soup.
The club finally relocated to New York, and in 1890 it ordered a 4-acre parcel adjacent to Manor Park where it supposed to develop the house into long term club services, according to the Larchmont Historic Society. But it defaulted on its home loan and the home was finally offered at general public auction.

The property now features a porte-cochere and a formal lobby that opens to a rounded dwelling space with windows facing out to Larchmont Harbor.
This key floor also has a vibrant sunroom with radiant-heat flooring, a modern day take in-in kitchen, a smaller analyze, a official eating space with a wall of home windows overlooking the h2o, and a billiards home with its authentic wooden paneling, fireplace, wood ceiling beams and a image window.
There is also a compact hexagonal space with five sets of French doors that open up to the surrounding rooms and a three-story terrific place with a substantial stone fireplace that was included in 2002.
The second floor retains four bedrooms, which includes the first main suite and a next bigger key bed room from the 2002 addition. There are 3 additional bedrooms on the third ground, which includes just one in the turret that Ms. Magarelli described as the “boat bedroom, with a beamed ceiling and porthole home windows.”
Other architectural and layout functions contain hardwood floors in a herringbone pattern, primary gentle fixtures, two staircases, a new cedar-shake roof and a wraparound rocking-chair porch that seems out more than the yard and the Audio.
“It feels like you’re at an inn in Maine,” Ms. Magarelli mentioned.
Alongside with the pool, other features include a two-automobile garage, seven fireplaces, central air conditioning, bluestone patios and walkways and a whole-dwelling generator. There’s also a guesthouse with three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a retro kitchen area that was once the stables.
The homeowners declined to comment.
