Encounter the treasures of a home made for music.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Rosen House is a work of living history. You can enjoy the Rosen House in many ways: take a tour, enjoy an Afternoon Tea, hear a concert in the Music Room or Spanish Courtyard, or attend a fundraising event.
Filled with examples of fine and decorative Asian and Renaissance art, the House offers a number of treasures, including complete 18th-century rooms, originally from private villas and chateaux in Italy, France, and England. The Burgundian Library is a French 17th-century, paneled room with a brilliant blue groin-vaulted ceiling. An exquisite 16th century painted Spanish ceiling resides in an alcove off the Music Room.
The House’s Spanish Courtyard contains gardens and cloisters, as well as niches with intricately painted wall designs. This distinctive space is “Spanish under the influence of the Italian Renaissance” given the architectural styles reminiscent of 15th-century Italian architect Filippo Brunelleschi.
The Caramoor experience was born in the House and continues to this day. As great lovers of music, the Rosens filled their home with friends and neighbors for intimate musical performances, lavish parties, and musical soirées. In 1946, as those performances and parties gained momentum, the House was opened to the public, spawning the early years of what became Caramoor’s year-round music programming.
Today, nearly 15,000 annual visitors come to the House, including more than 6,000 school-aged children who learn about the House, arts, and culture through Caramoor’s Schools & Kids programs. Portions of the House are also used for private parties, events, and film shoots.
Caramoor Members can enjoy special Members-only events in the House.
