The New York Times once said of the famous and prolific architect, Lewis Bowman, that "owners of Bowman houses announce the fact in rather the same tone that a Rolls-Royce owner might use with the owner of a Ford." Bowman designed this fantastic home for Roy W. Howard (1883-1964), president of Scripps newspapers (later Scripps-Howard), lavishing incredible architectural detail throughout its 17 rooms, including a vast beamed-ceiling foyer with sweeping staircase, sunken living room with barrel-vaulted ceiling, dining room with faux stone walls, master bedroom with domed sleeping turret and five fireplaces (several with intricately-carved stone mantels). Roy Howard's original library retains the built-in bookcases, fireplace and french doors to a balcony overlooking a beautiful neighborhood of comparable homes. In addition to the master bedroom, the home has six further bedrooms, two with recently-renovated private en suite baths. Large kitchen spaces await the new owner's imagination. Located just three blocks from the Pelham train station, town and all Pelham Schools in the picturesque and historic Pelham Heights neighborhood.
