About This 1877 Theodore Carpenter House In New York
The Theodore Carpenter House stands today as one of the finest examples of a Second Empire Victorian. Built in 1877 for a prominent Mt. Kisco merchant, the house served as a principal location for the filming of the E.L Doctorow classic novel “Ragtime.” Wonderfully authentic, the house is restored and in beautiful condition. Matching pairs of double doors lead through the front vestibule to a center hallway.
The parlor, living room and dining room are each flooded with natural light from oversized windows. Eleven feet ceilings are handsomely detailed with crown and plaster moldings. The kitchen is tastefully renovated-blending perfectly with the original character. Four generously sized bedrooms include a master suite with private bath, office and walk-in closet. A period carriage barn includes garaging and a two story, 2 bedroom accessory apartment. Admired by many for generations and much loved by its owners for over 20 years, the house known as “Ragtime” begins its next chapter.
