YONKERS, N.Y. -- Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty announced today that the firm has listed a Victorian home in Yonkers, where scenes from the popular movie drama “Mona Lisa Smile,” in 2003, starring Academy Award-winning actress Julia Roberts were filmed.

The residence, which is now for sale, is co-listed by Scarsdale agents Dawn Knief and Mary Burr and offered at $749,000.

“Mona Lisa Smile” follows the story of Katherine Ann Watson, a 30-year-old graduate student who takes a position teaching the history of art at Wellesley College, in Massachusetts. She strays from the usual curriculum, introducing modern art and spirited discussions about various topics, including the meaning of Mona Lisa’s smile.

In 2003, various scenes from the film were shot in the beautifully restored home, which was originally built in 1900, boasting an authentic Victorian style.

The residence enjoys views of the Hudson River from various angles of the property, including its western-facing wraparound porch.

Inside the six- bedroom, three and a half-bath home, the visitor will find other well-maintained features and finishes such as high ceilings, arched doorways, restored woodwork, Venetian plaster walls and three detailed fireplaces remain.

While preserving these timeless qualities, the home also boasts various modern amenities, including a sophisticated sound system with built-in speakers in every room, a high-tech security system, smart-home controls for lighting and sound, as well as new bathrooms and a renovated eat-in kitchen with high-end appliances, a farm sink, pantry and doors that open to an inviting porch with sunset views of the Hudson.
