A Bowman Beauty

2005 this event has passed


Lewis Bowman, Bronxville’s premier architect in the 1920s and early 1930s, built this house as a studio for himself in 1924, the same year that he created more than a quarter of the total of 53 houses that he designed for village residents. Bowman’s stone cottage, with terra cotta roofs, partially hidden behind tall garden walls, has the look of a centuries-old English dwelling. The architect’s design is an irregular rectangle with a reception-room extension in front, giving the appearance to the footprint of a “fat T.” A bay window on the northwest side of the rectangle was added to create a dining room when Bowman later made the studio his home in 1934.
