Are you a fan of the popular, long-running TV series, Mad Men? The series first premiered back in July 2007 and lasted for 7 seasons! The last episode actually just aired a little over a month ago. I bet we’ll be seeing Mad Men reruns for a long, long time.
In the very first episode of Mad Men filmed back in 2007, this classic 1914 center-hall Colonial is the home of Don Draper, the Creative Director of the fictional Manhattan advertising firm, Sterling Cooper. (A different home was used in later episodes.)
If you’re a Mad Men fan and would like to own a bit of TV history, now’s your chance! This home, located at 90 Forest Avenue, New Rochelle, New York, is currently for sale. I love the symmetry of this beautiful home. I’m secretly hoping whoever buys it removes the storm door. That red door needs to be fully visible, don’t you think?
I guess storm doors are a good thing in New York but I would love to see it without the storm door. This home feels like the classic, all-American home. Per Sotheby’s where the home is listed, the home has been featured in many commercials and made-for-TV movies, in addition to appearing in Mad Men.
So many things to love from the dormers to the traditional clap siding to the wonderful old-brick fireplaces. See those two half-fan lights on either side of the fireplace. That’s a bedroom and it’s one of my favorite rooms in the home. Let’s go inside and take the tour!
Love the red door with the brass mail slot. Ohhh, I like the house across the street, too! Nice neighborhood!
I love the bones of this house. I’m sure whoever buys it will change the paint color to something they love.
The Living Room…
Great fireplace in the kitchen!
I love a big dining room because you can seat so many and there’s tons of space for entertaining. Notice the fireplace–so romantic for dining fireside!
The library…wonder if there’s hardwood flooring under the carpet? I bet there is. I’d definitely remove the carpeting to reveal it if there’s wood flooring underneath.
The Master suite also has beautiful hardwood flooring and a fireplace! Looks like they painted the brick around the fireplace. I wonder if that could be sandblasted off or removed? I’m guessing it could. I think I’d rather see the brick.
Here’s the room with the half-fanlight windows. Isn’t this an adorable space with the slanted ceilings. Again, more of that great hardwood flooring.
In addition to the beautiful front staircase we saw earlier, there’s a really pretty back staircase, as well. It’s as nice as the front staircase in most homes!
This home has a back porch and I think it’s calling to be screened! Yep, pretty sure it is…what say you? 🙂
