Architect Lewis Bowman was raised in Mount Vernon and started his career as a draftsman for McKim, Mead and White. Bowman would go on to become well-regarded for the stately residences he designed in Bronxville, ranging in style from Jacobean to Tudor. He chose the latter style for his personal home in the Westchester commuter suburb, which was built in 1922. The mansion is now on the market for $8,500,000 and it retains all of its grand appeal, from beamed ceilings and oak-paneled walls to hand-carved fireplace mantels and leaded glass diamond windows. And of course, the grounds are truly magical, with hidden paths, tranquil fountains, magical gardens, and a dreamy pool.
