This stately Georgian Revival Fieldstone house is located in the heart of Fieldston, a private
streeted community, on 1.3 acres which include a separate building lot. Set in sweeping lush
park-like grounds, this rare property is just 15 minutes from the Upper West Side.
Boasting a slate-shingled roof, the house was built by the noted architect Julius Gregory in the
late 1920's and has been owned by only two families. Approximately 10,000 square feet, this
important property has 10 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms and 4 powder rooms. Updated throughout,
this gracious and welcoming home retains all of its original details and preserves almost all of
its original bathrooms as well as the original kitchen cabinets and mahogany countertops. All
principal rooms have multiple exposures.
