My Notes

Introducing the Elizabeth C. Ralston estate!! This gracious 5 400+ S.F. estate property was constructed shortly after 1867 when Elizabeth Ralston purchased the lot from Benoni Lockwood (who was a New York developer that purchased 50+ acres and created what is now Evergreen and Montgomery Avenues). The first three estates that were constructed (this one is likely the first) are all tri-gabled Victorians of exquisite scale & proportion. What now graces the 1+ acre parcel is a 5 400+ S.F. residence that offers 5+ bedrooms and 3.5 baths with a gently sloping & private rear yard. The stolen vistas off the elevated screened porch in the rear are beautiful. You enter into a large central foyer with 12-foot ceilings marble flooring & several closets. The living room flanks the left side with 1 of the 5 fireplaces a bay window & a floor-to-ceiling window towards the porch. The dining room occupies the right side with a large bay window and the 2nd fireplace. Walk through the butler's pantry to the over-sized eat-in kitchen with the 3rd fireplace & access to the screened porch. One of the original doors to the kitchen has a linen-fold carved detail and beautiful iron work that looks like it could have been forged by Samuel Yellin. Both the main staircase & the rear staircase service all 3 floors of the house. The house was expanded in 1890 with a rear wing that is rumored to have been designed by Wilson Eyre. On the 2nd floor there is another large living space (the family room) that is the same size as the living room below with the 4th fireplace & a wall of built-in bookshelves. Two hall bathrooms service the remaining bedrooms on the 2nd floor. On the 3rd floor there are 4 distinct rooms (bedrooms home office or some other use?) and a 3rd hall bathroom. There is also a large storage room/closet as well as a large linen room with the original built-in cabinets. The full basement used to house the Summer kitchen & servants quarters and has high ceilings as well as direct access to the driveway. There is a fenced section out in the rear yard near the home which was used for the Owners dogs and tucked down into the rear yard is a 2-car garage (no longer served by a driveway) as well as a hidden terrace at the end of the property. Montgomery Avenue has numerous multi-million dollar estate properties therefor there is ample equity to justify any further investments into the restoration of this remarkably intact Victorian gem!  More Less
