The Landmark Society’s Annual Awards ceremony is less than a week away. Join us on Sunday, November 13 at 3 PM at Rochester’s historic City Hall, 30 Church Street. Awards are given to individuals and organizations in our nine-county area who have made outstanding efforts in the preservation of their homes, public buildings, historic properties, and landscapes. This week we continue to introduce this year’s award recipients.
The Historic Home Award is given to owners of private residences for their continued care of and commitment to the preservation of an architecturally significant house over a minimum of seven years.
2 Seneca Parkway
Rochester, New York
Owners: Nicholas & Alice Zumbulyadis
Located in Rochester’s Maplewood neighborhood, this handsome Tudor Revival style residence was built in 1911, adjacent to Maplewood Park and the Genesee River gorge. With amenities designed by the renowned Frederick Law Olmsted, the surrounding neighborhood is a designated historic district listed in the National Register of Historic Places. For over 20 years, this house has been the home of Nicholas and Alice Zumbulyadis, who have completed a series of major projects to restore the house to its original appearance. Projects include the restoration of missing moldings and paneling, re-opening access to the original pantry, and fabricating new, historically designed doors for their early 20th-century garage. In completing these projects, the owners are among the first in our region to take advantage of the New York State Homeowner’s Tax Credit program for the rehabilitation of National Register listed houses.
