Historic Home, Modernized for 21st Century Living, on the Market in Scarsdale

57BirchallNowAs the Village Board of Trustees considers new preservation code that would safeguard some of Scarsdale’s most distinctive homes, many of these historic homes are showing up on the market.

Last week 57 Birchall Drive, a 10,000 square foot stone Tudor home on 3.16 acres was listed for $7.5mm. Photos show that the home maintains its original façade but has been thoroughly modernized inside. It’s a good example of how a classic home can be preserved and renovated to meet the needs of modern living.

The home was listed as a “proposed individual landmark” in the Scarsdale Cultural Resources 57BirchallHistoricPhotosurvey done by Li/Saltzman in 2012. Here’s some history on the house:

“Set well back from the street, this large Tudor Revival house on a large plot of land has the feel of an English country house, undoubtedly the intent of John Hoagland when he commissioned

its construction. John A. Hoagland was the son of Joseph Hoagland, a founder of the Royal Baking Powder Company, a firm for which, John's New York Times obituary states, he "worked in his early manhood” (New York Times, April 18, 1942, p. 15). Hoagland's estate house is a massive stone structure with a strongly medieval feel, including such features as crenellated towers, arched entry, and deeply projecting half-timbered gable. Comparison of the house with a photograph published in the 1929 volume Scarsdale and Vicinity shows it to be almost unchanged since then.”

Today, in addition to the house there is a guest cottage with a four-car garage, an expansive pool and spa, a zen garden and a sports court.
