Estate Homes of Sarah Lawrence College, 2004

Not just one but two grand houses and two of Bronxville’s most noted architects were highlighted in the fall house tour of 2004.  The splendid stone neo-Tudor house at 935 Kimball Road built by Lewis Bowman in 1924 – better known today as the home of the president of Sarah Lawrence College – was first on the tour.  Members then crossed the street to visit “Westlands,”  the former home of William Van Duzer and Sarah Lawrence.  The brick and timber home designed by William Bates and Kenneth How in 1917 today serves as the administrative building of the college.
