One of Scarsdale's historic homes is on the market. A Victorian home, thought to be built around 1875 at 1084 Post Road has been listed by Angela Retelny and Janice Rothman of Julia B. Fee Sotheby's for $2,499,999. The home was called "The Maples" and was used a residence of the teachers of the Scarsdale community. It is an Eastlake Victorian, which refers to a household design reform movement by architect and writer Charles Eastlake, in the late Victorian period. His book, Hints on Household Taste in Furniture, Upholstery, and Other Details posited that furniture and decor in people's homes should be made by hand or machine workers who took personal pride in their work. Manufacturers in the United States used the drawings and ideas in the book to create mass-produced Eastlake Style or Cottage furniture
It sits on 1.26 acres and has a 3,726 square-foot interior, featuring ten-foot ceilings, original plaster walls, double crown moldings, and parquet hardwood floors throughout. The front porch provides a beautiful vista of Scarsdale.
Commenting on the market this week, Jennifer Constantin of Julia B.Fee Sotheby's in Scarsdale said, "The market movement this week has only cemented my belief that the traditional "spring" timing for putting homes on the market has evolved into a twelve month market. Today's buyers and sellers are more informed than ever before. Don't wait until next year, demand is strong, there is less competition and it's time to move on with your life!"
