Rebuilt home features traditional exterior with customized, modern interior
Purchase, N.Y. – October 21, 2014 – Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty announced today that the firm has listed a traditional Colonial with a revamped, designer interior in the Sky Meadow area of Purchase, N.Y. Rye agent Wendy A. Alper has the listing, which is offered at $5,600,000.
Completely rebuilt in 1999, the traditional Colonial was once the carriage house to the neighboring property at 7 Sky Meadow Farm, which is also listed with Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty with agent Maria Stilo. That historic 1927 residence was inspired by Britain’s finest English manors, boasting detailed architectural work, English gardens and numerous lavish amenities. Now a residence boasting its own luxurious appointments, 11 Sky Meadow Farm lies on nearly 3 acres of land, offering a Wagner pool with Pebble-Tec floor and spa, expansive bluestone patio, outdoor dining area with all-weather electric awning, outdoor lighting, and slate-floored pool house complete with its own high-ceilinged living room, gazebo-style dining room overlooking the pool, kitchen with custom cork ceiling and full bath with super-sized steam shower.
Beyond its traditional exterior, the 9,489 square-foot main residence displays a customized, modern design throughout its 15 rooms. The limestone-floored, two-story foyer includes an original fieldstone wall and double-sided stone fireplace with floor-to-ceiling windows that capture the home’s carriage house heritage. Additional standout spaces include a living room with original fieldstone fireplace, French limestone floors and Venetian plaster walls; a Hollywood-worthy media room complete with a glass ceiling, drop-down full-sized screen, Crestron system and black granite wet bar; dining room with custom wax-finished walls and silver leaf ceiling; and oak-floored kitchen updated in 2013 with new appliances. On the second floor, the step-down master suite has Thompson silk-paneled walls, a gas fireplace, built-in bed and master bath with floor-to-ceiling marble, oversized Jacuzzi tub and steam shower. In total the home has six bedrooms with seven full and two half baths.
“The residence has been completely gutted and done to the nines,” said Alper. “A movie star would love this home, not for its size, but rather for its lavish, glamorous design and hip, cool style. I am proud to be representing a property that offers both great history and modern sophistication.”
Additional features include three fireplaces, a library, staff quarters and three-car garage. For more information on the home, located at 11 Sky Meadow Farm, visit the firm’s website here.
