PELHAM, N.Y. - A seven-bedroom Victorian that served as a Red Cross facility during wartime and survived several attempts to break it up into multiple units has gone on the market, still intact as a single-family home.
Built in 1895, the stone-and-shingle home has retained its stately original look and detail over the years. The interior has been completely renovated, but with respect for the original features.
"You don't typically find stone-and-shingle Victorians," said listing agent Megan Posner, of Julia B Fee Sothebys International Realty.
The 8,600-square-foot home has its original herringbone hardwood floors, multiple fireplaces, many original windows and other vintage details, including the original stone porch overlooking manicured grounds.
The fireplace in a great room that is being used as formal dining room by the current owner has a dramatic five-foot stone arch.
"It's huge," Posner said. "The mantel is higher than my head!"
The seven-bedroom, six-bathroom home is on the market for $2.95 million.
