Award Win­ning Play­wright's Larch­mont Fam­ily Home Listed for $4.8M

The Jewish Voice - - NEW YORK - By Rachel Shapiro

Drama Desk Award-win­ning writer and per­former Ben­jamin Scheuer’s child­hood fam­ily home in Larch­mont, New York, is now on the mar­ket with a $4.79 mil­lion price tag.

The Post re­ports, “Scheuer de­vel­oped his off-Broad­way au­to­bi­o­graph­i­cal one-man show/ mu­si­cal, ‘ The Lion,’ and other works from this 8,179-square­foot home at 875 Fen­i­more Road, which he says serves as his in­spi­ra­tion. Scheuer was also based in the house when he col­lab­o­rated on the book, ‘Be­tween Two Spa­ces’ with pho­tog­ra­pher Riya Lerner. Many of the pho­tos in the book were taken in the house and on the prop­erty, and half of the pro­ceeds are do­nated to the Leukemia & Lym­phoma So­ci­ety (Scheuer is a sur­vivor of Hodgkins lym­phoma).”

The ma­jes­tic home sits on 6.38 acres. De­signed in 1927, the house fea­tures seven bed­rooms, five full bath­rooms and its own el­e­va­tor. Other perks of this glo­ri­ous res­i­dence in­clude a grand en­trance hall with a sweep­ing stair­case and a chan­de­lier, a large sunroom, a chef’s kitchen and a wood-pan­eled li­brary. In 2002, Scheuer con­structed a record­ing stu­dio that still ex­ists within the home.

The grounds sur­round­ing the man­sion are just as spec­tac­u­lar. Ac­cord­ing to the list­ing, it in­cludes a beau­ti­ful gar­den with a “bab­bling brook” with wa­ter­falls and step­ping stones.

Bar­bara and Casey Rosen­blum, of Wil­liam Pitt Ju­lia B Fee Sotheby’s In­ter­na­tional Re­alty, are the list­ing bro­kers for this amaz­ing prop­erty.
