A home dating back to 1837 in Roslyn is on the market for $1.498 million.
The four-bedroom, five-bathroom, one-half-bath late Federal style home is on just over one third of an acre and boasts views of Roslyn Pond. It has wide plank wood floors, an updated kitchen and updated electric, plumbing and bathrooms.
Each bedroom has its own bathroom, and there are four fireplaces, including two in two of the bedrooms.
Originally the Jacob Sutton Mott home, the house stood in Glenwood Landing, according to the book “Roslyn Restored: The Legacy of Roger & Peggy Gerry,” by Ellen Fletcher Russell. Fletcher notes that Mott built the house between 1831 and 1837 using stone from his fields and wood he had sawn at the Jackson Mott sawmill at Motts Cove on Hempstead Harbor. The house and farm stayed in the Mott family for 216 years and was acquired in 1986 by a developer who had the house hoisted onto two trucks and moved to its current location a year later.
“It’s a very majestic house. The backyard is like an English garden,” says Susan Berg of Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate, who is the listing agent with Susan Paulenoff.
