For those who enjoy the outdoor lifestyle, an extraordinary waterfront property now on the market in Larchmont, New York, offers virtually every amenity. Describing the property as a boater’s paradise is no exaggeration, for the property includes a private dock with its own enchanting gazebo on Larchmont Harbor, offering direct access to fishing and other boating activities on Long Island Sound. One can also choose to simply enjoy the views of the boats out on the harbor, as well as the gorgeous blue waters of the Sound. Several spots on the property provide breathtaking vantage points, including the private stretch of sandy beach and the peaceful fieldstone path that gently winds from the main grounds down to the lovely promenade-like seawall. Guests can also relax on one of the outdoor terraced sitting areas and alongside the stunning swimming pool, or take a stroll across the 3.36 park-like acres, which are served by an underground sprinkler system. A two-bedroom guest cottage completes the grounds.
The commanding three-story Georgian Colonial-style residence that overlooks these grounds offers a level of craftsmanship to match the superb setting. Built in 1900, the 9,050 square-foot, 19-room home is impeccably detailed, highlighting magnificent design elements throughout. Depending on the room, visitors might discover decorative Colonial, dentil or hand-carved moldings, along with built-in cabinetry, wainscoting and beautiful millwork. Ceilings spotlight circular medallions with sweeping vines, garlands and rosettes, while underneath, the living spaces bask in the sunlight and water views that enter through the arched and palladium windows and dormers. One can pass beneath archways or through French doors between the formal and informal spaces, each of which is thoughtfully designed to meld traditional sophistication with comfort and elegance. Additional features of the seven-bedroom, six full and three half-bath home include hardwood flooring, marble countertops, central air and a security system. The residence also has an attached three-car garage and a basement with changing room and bath, laundry, playroom, wine cellar and storage area.
