Mark Twain said: "The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why." I believe he was referring to The Spaulding Coachman's House. He had lived across the street in the Wave Hill house, from 1901 to 1903. Imagine owning The Henry F. Spaulding Coachman's House, a landmarked piece of history built circa 1880 on an acre of prime land, located across the street from famous Wave Hill. At approximately 8,500sf, this historic home, is set back surrounded by woods and lawns and is recognized in the Registry of Historic Places. The home is comprised of the main house attached to a cottage designed by architect Walfredo Toscanini, grandson of the eminent conductor Arturo Toscanini.
