Designed for newspaper executive, Roy W. Howard by Lewis Bowman, of whom the New York Times once said that “owners of Bowman houses announce the fact in rather the same tone that a Rolls-Royce owner might use with the owner of a Ford.” Bowman designed this fantastic home for the president of Scripps newspapers (later Scripps-Howard), lavishing architectural detail throughout its 17 rooms, including a vast beamed-ceiling foyer with sweeping staircase, sunken living room with barrel-vaulted ceiling, dining room with faux stone walls, master bedroom with domed sleeping turret, library with balcony overlooking beautiful Pelham Heights neighborhood and 5 fireplaces (several with intricately-carved stone mantels). Seven bedrooms, three with en suite baths. Updated throughout, including updated kitchen with quartz counters & new appliances, new bathrooms & plumbing, 3-zone central AC and multi-zone heating. Located just 3 blocks from Pelham train station with 30-minute commute to mid-town Manhattan. Easy stroll to historic downtown and all Pelham Schools
