45 West Clinton Avenue, Irvington, New York, United States, 10533
One of the most visually distinctive homes in the world, the Armour-Stiner House is an octagon-shaped and domed Victorian-style house located in Westchester County, New York. Designated a historic landmark in 1976, it is the only fully domed octagonal residence and the “only house modeled after Donato Bramante’s 1502 Tempietto in Rome”. The four-story, 8,400 square foot complex includes a barn, carriage house, a well house used as a gazebo, and the original Lord & Burnham conservatory greenhouse. Surrounded by a veranda accented with carved wooden gingerbread detailing is the main floor of the home. The interior of the house includes an entrance hall, solarium, library, curio room, an Egyptian Revival music room, and a 360-degree dance room, a billiard room, a wine cellar, seven bedrooms, three bathrooms, two kitchens, and a pantry. The home is currently owned by Joseph Lombardi, a preservationist architect, who has conserved and renovated the property. The estate remains a private residence and in 2017, Lombardi offered the home for rent through Sotheby’s for $40,000 a month. Information found on Armour–Stiner House.
