A sprawling ranch-style house in Tarrytown’s coveted Crest neighborhood is on the market complete with some literary and musical history to its name.
It is said to be a former carriage house used briefly by beloved American writer Mark Twain, who owned the Hillcrest estate for several years beginning in 1902. Twain sold the property and part of it has become the adjacent Tappan Hill Mansion restaurant . More recently the house is also where Dr. Norbert Bromberg, a psychoanalyst and psychiatry professor at Albert Einstein Medical Center, and his wife raised their family which included musician and songwriter David Bromberg.
The stucco house, shown above in real estate photos, is large and gracious, which is not evident in the listing description that calls it a raised ranch. The 4,000-square-foot house has 15 rooms with four bedrooms, four full bathrooms and two half baths. The property is nearly an acre in size and landscaped with grassy areas and a patio.
The listing is through Coldwell Banker. Price is at $950,000.
