The former home of Yankee legend Lou Gehrig in New Rochelle is on the market for $1,500,000. Douglas Elliman’s Glorianne Mattesi represents the listing.
Located at 9 Meadow Lane, in the Residence Park neighborhood known for its fine period homes—just 14 miles north of Yankee Stadium—the 1895 colonial was originally purchased by Gehrig in 1927 for his parents. The current owners have overseen a complete renovation of the home, while honoring its charming historic details throughout.
The four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom home offers sun-filled living spaces finished with lustrous parquet floors, handsome fireplaces, beautiful windows, window seats and French doors. Other stand-out features include gracious living and dining rooms, a modern kitchen and a fabulous front porch. Mature landscaping and a detached garage add further appeal.
One of New Rochelle’s most picturesque enclaves, the premier locale is close to the renowned 130-acre Glen Island Park and beach on Long Island Sound, the Metro North train station and numerous shops and restaurants.
