    Nice find! Is it just me or do you think there might have been a different chimney system at one point?

    The blocks probably failed and had to be repaired. You see that often on block and brick houses with chimneys up the sides.

    That's kinda what I was wondering- or if perhaps it had a "kick out" for the hearths that you could walk in.

    I picked that one because of the chimneys.

    Inside heat all the way up.

    Old/historical houses that's true. New building codes have the chimney so insulated, any residual heat goes up and out. The codes are for fire safety but too bad there isn't a balance so the heat could actually help heat the upstairs.

    If I don't miss my guess what looks like a second floor will have a spectacular view, and you will be met by a magnificent fireplace when you walk in the front door. I hope there is a lake out in front. Very Nice!! :thumbs:

    Wow! I like the lines often found in tudors. This is an intriguing find. Some elements appear newer some quite old. Stone portion almost looks like an old chapel. Do you know where it is? Sign reads "Beechtree" ??? I might have to save a copy of that one.

    Took me a second to find it. It is located at #1 Beechtree Drive, Larchmont, New York.

    Thanks @Sentry18 !!! I will just admire the exterior - don't care for the "upgrades" they've made to the interior. Still a beautiful home:)
