Take A Look At Eleanor Roosevelt’s Former Estate ⇒ The historic New York estate is dubbed Oak Terrace and was originally built in 1872, having been the focus of major renovations in 2000. Let’s discover Eleanor Roosevelt‘s previous home.
The estate is two stories tall and measures around 2,000 square feet, having undergone alterations in 1938 and other renovations and expansions in 2000. It features three bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms, as well as some historical French Second Empire such as the original widow’s walk, Victorian marble fixtures and stained glass windows.
Eleanor Roosevelt spent many of her summers at the estate after the death of both of her parents by the time she was nine and would return there occasionally after high school, spending half her time there before her marriage in 1905 to future president Franklin D. Roosevelt.
The estate’s Victorian roots can be seen by the claw-foot bathtub and the antique lighting fixtures in each room. The listing also features a Gunite pool adjacent to the home, as well as a fountain inside the property.
