A granite and slate masterpiece located in the Stratton Farms area of New Rochelle, New York, presents an elegant example of the English Country Manor style. Known as Stratton Manor, the residence is introduced by stone walls and wrought-iron gates that open to just over 1.5 tranquil and bucolic acres. The picturesque grounds offer a lovely outdoor living environment accented by Clarence Flower-designed gardens that are in continuous bloom, featuring fruiting trees and shrubs, several perennial beds and a large rose garden. Individual garden rooms are distinguished by blue-stone patios and Belgian block borders. A kidney-shaped pool is also included.
Designed in 1928 by noted architect Julius Gregory, the manor house makes a stately first impression with its elegant façade of granite and brick detailing, including generous casement windows and a Vermont slate roof. A gracious foyer with custom millwork and a curved ceiling invites guests into the home and the 8,266 square feet of old world craftsmanship and 14 beautifully scaled rooms within. The foyer opens on either side to the formal living room and handsome dining room, both with Greek key dentil moldings and marble fireplaces. Crafted with hand-pegged teak flooring, the first floor also has a family room adjacent to the dining room, a library with inlaid ceramic tile floor and French doors to the garden, and a kitchen that accesses an outdoor herb and vegetable garden and is outfitted with a Gaggenau cook-top with grill, Sub-Zero refrigerator, two wall ovens, two dishwashers and a convection oven.
Upstairs, the six-bedroom, four full and two half-bath residence’s master suite is introduced by a charming anteroom and boasts a fireplace, dressing room, window seats, arched doorways, marble vanity sink and master bath with Jacuzzi tub and separate steam shower. Two additional bedroom suites also have dressing rooms and fireplaces and offer private baths with original hand-painted tiles, while another bedroom with half bath and a separate, two-room au pair suite with bath round out the second floor.
The home also comes complete with a host of sophisticated amenities, including a 10-room Bang & Olufsen audio system, central air conditioning, security system and lawn sprinklers. Offered at $2,850,000 with Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty, this is a property that truly conveys the idyllic English country experience, all just a short 30-minute commute to New York City.
