roslyn heights

The former Victorian home of renowned 19th-century banker J.P. Morgan is listed for sale at 204 Warner Ave. in Roslyn Heights.

News outlets have reported that the house was built for Morgan in 1890, and the financier lived in it for several years before moving to Glen Cove. Since then, several rich and famous people have owned the home. It has now been on the market and seeking its newest occupants since December 2020.

The charming, red-orange exterior with Victorian-style white and gray accents make this home stand out among the rest. The house also has two porches and two separate front door entrances, as well as a new roof and new windows. 

There are even more renovations throughout this three-story home, including four new bathrooms and a new, skylit, eat-in kitchen. The home has 10-foot ceilings on the main floor, plus a living room with a fireplace, den, laundry area, formal dining room with a fireplace, and a library.

The home has seven bedrooms, including the master suite, which is on the second floor. There are three other bedrooms on the second floor and three on the third floor. There’s also one bathroom on each floor. The basement, however, is unfinished.

Located on a .22-acre corner lot, this property is in close proximity to transportation, schools, and shopping in the Roslyn School District.

The asking price is $1,295,000, not including the annual property tax of $23,174.

The real estate agent listed for the property is Aileen Murstein, of Douglas Elliman Real Estate, who can be reached at 516-621-3555.
