The Manor House, the most historically significant house in Larchmont, has hit the market for $4.699 million with Pollena Forsman of Houlihan Lawrence. The Federal-style Colonial at 18 Elm Avenue was built in 1797 as a country house for Peter Jay Munro, a nephew of John Jay, the first Chief Justice of the United States.
The 6,723-square-foot home, which was recently renovated, features six bedrooms, four full bathrooms, and two partial baths.
The renovation resulted in a new master suite and new high-end designer bathrooms with radiant-heat floors and updated the electrical and plumbing systems as well as the windows and doors.
The historic home boasts numerous architectural details like oversized and graciously proportioned rooms with 9- to12-foot ceilings, a grand entry foyer with a curved center staircase and wood flooring in a black-and-white checkerboard pattern, four chimneys and eight fireplaces, hardwood and parquet floors, classic moldings and chair rails, and oversized windows and doors and wide hallways and doorways.
There are large front and rear architectural covered porches with multiple seating and dining areas, gardens and mature trees, a large flat lawn that has been sited for a pool, and an expansive lower level.
The three-story Manor House sits on a 1.44-acre parcel in the Mamaroneck School District. It is in close proximity to Chatsworth Elementary School, Hommocks Middle School and Mamaroneck High School, and is also in walking distance to the Metro-North train station, village shops and restaurants, Manor Beach and Park, Flint Park, the Larchmont Public Library and several nursery schools.
