Description

Mark Twain said: "The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why." I believe he was referring to The Spaulding Coachman's House. He had lived across the street in the Wave Hill house, from 1901 to 1903. Imagine owning The Henry F. Spaulding Coachman's House, a landmarked piece of history built circa 1880 on an acre of prime land, located across the street from famous Wave Hill. At approximately 8,500sf, this historic home, is set back surrounded by woods and lawns and is recognized in the Registry of Historic Places. The home is comprised of the main house attached to a cottage designed by architect Walfredo Toscanini, grandson of the eminent conductor Arturo Toscanini. This incredible property offers unique privacy in the Estate Section of beautiful Riverdale, just 20 minutes north of midtown Manhattan. The Spaulding Coachman's house retains much of it's original character with batten siding, jigsaw ornamentation, twin chimneys, overhanging eaves, a slate roof, a huge paved Patio, a Kitchen Garden, 3 covered Decks and a bracketed entrance porch. The house was designed by architect Charles Clinton. This simply elegant, sprawling house features 6 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms with 2 Kitchens, 2 Living Rooms, 2 Dining Rooms, 2 Home Offices and a Detached 2 Car Garage. Easy access to the Henry Hudson Pkwy, NYS Thruway, Metro North station, express and local buses with easy ,access to the #1, A and #4 trains. Near Horace Mann, Fieldston Ethical, Riverdale Country, public schools, Mount Saint Vincent and Manhattan Colleges, Shops, parks all just 10 miles from Midtown Manhattan.
