Updated 1927 home chosen as “dream home” on popular reality TV show
Larchmont, N.Y. – April 20, 2015 – Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty announced today that the firm has listed an updated chalet-style home in the town of New Rochelle, N.Y., that has been chosen to be featured as a “dream home” on an episode of HGTV’s “Property Brothers.” The residence, which is represented by Larchmont agent Carola Schonander and offered at $1,099,000, was recently filmed for an episode set to air this coming fall.
“Property Brothers” is a one hour reality show in which twin brothers Jonathan and Drew Scott help home buyers find, purchase and transform “fixer-uppers” into dream homes, while maintaining a strict budget. Each episode begins with the brothers showcasing a home that features everything on the future homeowner’s wish-list, eventually leading them to homes that are more in their price range, but still have great potential to become their dream home.
Once a local cider mill, this 1927 renovated home boasts 4,500 square feet of space, which includes an inviting center hall entrance with 16-foot ceilings and a modern, open floor plan throughout. While fully equipped with up-to-date amenities and features, the carefully renovated home retains much of its original architectural integrity, boasting interior details such as wood-beamed cathedral ceilings, four fireplaces, a turret sitting area, hardwood floors and more. The residence’s kitchen offers oversized windows, and is located adjacent to a spacious living room with a stone fireplace and French doors that open to a sweeping private yard with mature landscaping. Upstairs, 3 bedrooms, including an amenity filled master bath, can be found.
“Having the Property Brothers and crew in the house was undoubtedly a great experience for all,” said fellow Larchmont agent Gay Rosen, who wrote a piece on the featured property upon hearing the news. “There were approximately 10 staff members present for the day’s shooting, and when aired in October, it will definitely be a show that will be viewed by many in our area.”
“I can see why this fantastic residence was chosen to be featured as a dream home on the show,” said Schonander. “Not only does it have a unique past and undeniable rustic charm, but it also contains all the contemporary luxuries needed to live a fine lifestyle among the fabulous surroundings and offerings of this Westchester County town. It was a pleasure to have the Property Brothers and crew in the house, and we all can’t wait for this very special episode to air!”
