Giving History a New Life
WELCOME TO The Carleton Villa
Well after being on the market for over 12 years this notable home has a new owner. Abandon for over 90 years we plan to restore the home and give it new life.
This amazing 15,000 sqft villa was built in 1895 for William O. Wyckoff a marketer of Remington Typewriters and the architect was the famed William H. Miller. We encourage you to read an article by Alec Johnson as well as go The Story on our site to learn more about the history. Along with starting the process of restoration we hope to grow this website as place to learn the history, a platform for pictures and a way to keep up-to-date with what is going on with this wonderful restoration project.
