MLS # 1181022 - Active
The "Boulders" is a home designed and built by renowned architect, Charles Bevins. Built in 1888 for Professor Charles W. Larned and his wife, Louise, to vacation at when they were away from their home at West Point. They chose the homesite for its beautiful water views. The portrait above the front fireplace, "Old North Wind", is believed to be by famous landscape artist William Trost Richards. Many of his paintings are currently on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The current owners spared no expense restoring the original Bevins design while also modernizing it for year-round use. Cellulose was blown into the walls and a complete heating and air conditioning system was added. They maintained the integrity of the original design by adhering to architectural elements reminiscent to the late 19th century. The "carriage house"-style garage, added by the current owners, replaces an old carriage house that was destroyed decades earlier. A private guest suite occupies the second floor of the addition. There is also a private staircase for visitors. Access from the home is via a second floor walkway. The home is eligible for membership in the neighborhood association, The Dumplings, and has rights to a private beach (with a lifeguard on duty in the summer) as well as a dock for launching small boats or kayaks. Moorings are available as well.
