Welcome to # 23 Lenox Place, a grand Edwardian-style home designed by renowned architect Guy Mariner. Built in 1904, the three-story house features restrained elements that were, at the time of construction, a major deviation from the over-opulent Beaux Arts period that was coming to an end. Along a private street in a coveted neighborhood, No. 23 is one of twenty-three homes that were built between the years of 1903 and 1906. Its most recent owners, Dr. Coy and Rachel Fitch, made this their home for the last quarter of a century, where entertained friends and family, as well as gathered with colleagues and community leaders to raise money for civic causes that were important to them. Now, take a deep breath and enjoy your step back in time, while each designer brings you aesthetically to the present.
