Is there no institutional memory around here?
The listing for this property doesn’t even mention this house, above, was once a sprawling hotel (top photo), The Belvedere. Then, in 1955, it became the Manor Inn assisted living facility. About ten years ago, it was cut in half and turned into a residence. Some of the recent history was covered by the New York Times.
In any case, 7 Prospect Avenue, Larchmont, is yours for $4,299,000.
This iconic and stunning six-bedroom home blends exquisite renovations with the finest craftsmanship.
