Situated on a corner lot in the Lawrence Park neighborhood in Bronxville, the home at 7 Valley Road, currently on the market for $4.2 million, is immediately recognizable by its stone and shingle facade, slate roof, stone turret, and sprawling wraparound porch. Prolific local Gilded Age architect William Augustus Bates designed this remarkable 7,000-square-foot home in the town’s historic district. Completed in 1902, the seven-bedroom house combines the Queen Anne and Shingle styles with masterful turn-of-the-century workmanship that remains timeless today.

Inside, there are impressive details everywhere. The center of the home is a dramatic balconied two-story great room from which rises a sweeping staircase. Anchoring the space is a massive stone fireplace and surrounding it are Ionic columns and stained glass windows.

Rooms that ring the great room include an octagonal paneled library with a fireplace, a stone walled sunroom, a living room with a music alcove and fireplace, a unique two-story dining room, a butler’s pantry and an eat in kitchen. The dazzling dining room features a minstrel’s balcony, a majestic fireplace, a colorful decorative painted ceiling and a sensational curved bank of stained glass windows.

The cozy library looks like a great place to spend winter days with the roaring fireplace and the cushy red carpet.

Upstairs, a gallery landing leads to the home’s five large bedrooms. A luxurious master suite is comprised of a bedroom, sitting room, and dressing room. On the third floor are two more bedrooms and a bath.

Spring brings a whole new set of options for al fresco dining and front-porch games, gardening…and grazing. The house has been home to its current owners for 40 years (though the big guy above doesn’t look a day over 29).
