A well-loved home at 28 Oxford Road has recently been put on the market for the first time in 56 years. Built in 1937, it has six bedrooms and four baths and sits on over a half acre in the Grange. The current owner calls it the "little big house" because it is not an overwhelming house to manage even though it is 4,500 square feet and has great size rooms, numerous closets, 3 wood burning fireplaces, a great flow, beautiful architectural details and tons of space.
The home was designed by Verna Cook Shipway, an American architect and author. Shipway was born in 1890 in Spokane, Washington and attended Ecole Speciale d’Architecture in Paris and the School of Architecture at Columbia University where she met and married Edgar Salomonsky, also a student of architecture. They opened a firm together in 1920 and when he died in 1929 she continued to run the business on her own, specializing in Georgian, colonial and English style homes.
Shipway built numerous homes in Scarsdale and in 1936 she was selected to design the first “Ideal House” for House and Garden. In 1939 she designed a model home for the New York World’s Fair. Her homes featured abundant closet space, natural light, circular staircases, bay windows, large hallway and light-colored walls to make rooms appear larger. The home at 28 Oxford has all of Shipway’s signature features and more!
The home is listed for $1,950,000. To see photos and schedule a showing, click here:
