22 Elm Rock Road
By Main on
The original structure at 22 Elm Rock Road strongly echoes the classic Greek Revival lines of Alexander Masterton’s nearby Ridgecroft. This unique mid-nineteenth-century house boasts twentieth-century additions by Lewis Bowman and is set on one of the largest parcels of residential land in the village. Surrounded by old-growth trees and beautiful gardens, it is situated well back from the road that was carved through the woods by Masterton over 165 years ago. This well loved home provided comfortable living for its earliest recorded residents, the DeWitts, who arrived in 1855 and whose family owned extensive land in and around Bronxville. If walls could talk, one might hear stories of the California Gold Rush, Victorian poetry or the ever-unfolding history of today’s owners who are celebrating their family’s fiftieth year in this special place.
