Exquisite Fireplaces – in New Rochelle’s Historic District

DSC05783I am always thrilled to be asked to market a new home for sale. I am doubly thrilled when that home has special features that are just so unique and sublime. Such is the case of 12, The Serpentine.  There are 5 fireplaces within this turn of the century home (built in 1911).  The details within invoke a bygone era.DSC05782

In the Dining Room, there is a decorative  fireplace with the pilasters being adorned with both a Conquistador & a Moor. Oh my! What stories lie behind this gorgeous workmanship and artistry!

In the Sitting Room, this wood burning fireplace is elegant, the molding so finely detailed, complimenting the herringbone hardwood floors and rich border inlays.DSC05805

DSC05778I also love the Living Room fireplace with its’ rich, elegant frieze work. Here, you can see nymphs and cherubs adorning the gas fireplace.


In the second bedroom,  which is both spacious and sunny, the decorative fireplace there is adorned with the unique designs of the famed Illustrator Kate Greenaway (1846-1901)  who was renowned for illustrating children’s nursery rhymes.DSC05789
