Iconic Butler Road Home Sells for $7mm


54 Bulter RoadAn 11,000 square foot iconic Fox Meadow home built in 1933 was the top seller this week. The home, which looks like a chateau, sits behind stone pillars and a cobblestone driveway at 54 Butler Road. It was designed by noted architect Lewis Bowman for the Hellmann family, of mayonnaise fame.

A notice from the September 10, 1932 New York Times says,

Richard Hellmann Gets Residential Corner in Fox Meadow.

Richard Hellmann, president of Richard Hellmann Inc and a director of the General Food Corporation has bought a plot of one and one third acres at the southwest corner of Butler Road and Hickory Lane, Fox Meadow Scarsdale for improvement with a residence being designed by Lewis Bowman architect. The seller was James S. Alexander, vice president of the Guaranty Trust Company.ButlerEntry

Pending the erection of his new home, Mr. Hellmann who has been living in Flushing, Queens, has leased for immediate occupancy a Norman type dwelling built by Anthony J. Grasso at the northwest corner of Hampton and Whig Roads, Fox Meadow from plans by Stanwood Phillips, architect. R.E.L. Howe Jr. arranged the sale of the site.

George Schlegel of Brooklyn bought a recently completed English type house at the southeast corner of Hampton and Whig Roads from the Hampton-Whig Corporation. The plot is one half acre. Prince and Ripley were the brokers.

Prior to the sale this week, the home has been owned by the same family for almost 50 years. The listing noted “elegant details and quality workmanship throughout plus 10 foot+ ceilings with a grand foyer, reception hall with bar and tracery plaster ceilings, formal living room with imported stained glass French doors and access to a stone terrace, dining room featuring a carved beam ceiling and beautiful leaded glass windows with cove lighting, library with picture windows and built-ins, formal sitting room, sunny breakfast room and kitchen wing with staff quarters that could be reconfigured to create a large open-plan kitchen/great room on the first level with views of the yard.

On the third level there’s a large, artist's studio and the lower level has a recreation room, kitchenette/bar, sauna with changing rooms and showers, plus a four car attached garage. Outside there’s a circular drive, lovely, private pool and gorgeous landscaped grounds.

Commenting on the sale, realtor Laura Miller said, "It was such a pleasure to represent the sellers of this iconic Scarsdale home! It is a gem — filled with old world charm and magnificent architectural details. Designed by noted architect Lewis Bowman and originally built for the Hellman family, it is a perfect space in which to both entertain graciously and raise a family. I loved showing this home and pointing out its fabulous and elegant design features. The sellers, having adored this home for 50 years, were thrilled to sell to a lovely local family who appreciated the home’s history and beauty. Former owner Claudette OrchidAdams had imported beautiful stained glass from Lichtenstein to create French doors into the living room from the entry foyer. The stair railing was made of wrought iron with gold leaf details. There were carved beams on the dining room ceiling and an old-fashioned reception hall with a built-in bar where guests could gather upon arriving for a party. The main rooms all had carved doors with different designs and original decorative plaster work on the ceilings. The home retained the original simple and elegant leaded glass windows, stone fireplaces and brass hardware."

The home sold for $7,000,000, $3 million above its assessed value.
