An attention-worthy historic home just listed for $4.699 million in Westchester County. Known as The Manor House, the stately yet whimsical yellow stunner is the oldest and most iconic home in Larchmont, a village within the town of Mamaroneck, New York. Built in 1797, this Federal-style Colonial at 18 Elm Avenue is a rare find.
The 6,723-square-foot dwelling was built to be the country house of Peter Jay Munro, a lawyer and nephew of John Jay, the first Chief Justice of the United States. Alongside the charming architecture of its period, the colonial is now dressed in playful interiors. Bold splashes of color combined with exquisite wall paneling creates a perfect blend of old, new, and just plain fun. Beautiful flooring lines the home, leading into rooms with tons of natural light, 12-foot ceilings, and marvelous fireplaces. Spacious as well as stylish, the home has six bedrooms, four baths, and two powder rooms across three levels.
Manicured grounds compliment the home’s elegant presence. Take in the scenery from the double front porch or from the back porch, where a patio and gardening area is visible in the yard. Stretching 1.44 acres, as well as being the oldest home, this is one of the largest properties in the village.
The Manor House is listed with Pollena Forsman of Houlihan Lawrence.
