The New York Times once said of the famous and prolific architect, Lewis Bowman, that "owners of Bowman houses announce the fact in rather the same tone that a Rolls-Royce owner might use with the owner of a Ford."
Bowman designed this fantastic home for Roy W. Howard (1883-1964), president of Scripps newspapers (later Scripps-Howard), lavishing incredible architectural detail throughout its 17 rooms, including a vast beamed-ceiling foyer with sweeping staircase, sunken living room with barrel-vaulted ceiling, dining room with faux stone walls, master bedroom with domed sleeping turret and five fireplaces (several with intricately-carved stone mantels).
Roy Howard's original library retains its bookcases, fireplace and french doors to balcony overlooking the beautiful Pelham Heights neighborhood. Seven bedrooms, three with renovated en suite baths. Many updates including three-zone central air conditioning and two furnaces. Located just 3 blocks from the Pelham town, train station and all Pelham Schools.
