When it comes to determining whether a property meets the criteria for offering the very best views, waterfront surroundings certainly help, and spectacular sunrises and sunsets ensure that the home is even more likely to qualify. The Rye, New York, villa at 7 Kirby Lane more than makes the grade. With 200 feet of sea wall right along Rye’s historic Kirby Mill Pond, the property features gorgeous pond vistas as well as sensational panoramic views extending across beautiful Long Island Sound, accompanied by the sight of those stunning skies at sun-up and sundown. The outdoor terracing provides an ideal venue for basking in the views, whether taking in the waterfront and dock, the superb gardens, the lovely trees and greenery, or the well-groomed lawns.
The residence that presides over this captivating setting was originally built in 1910, but in recent years was subject to a major restoration under the guidance of the current owner, who collaborated with a celebrated architect. The Tuscan-style villa was completely rebuilt to integrate all of the details that fulfill the expectations of the modern homeowner, even as the home’s unique historic elements were artfully preserved. Within, the three-story residence offers a total of 10 rooms and 4,713 square feet of living space, with four bedrooms and four and a half baths. Hardwood floors are found throughout, and standout areas include a spacious living room with fireplace, adjoining columned dining room, breakfast area with water views, and charming kitchen with granite counter-tops. The residence also features central air, a security system, and a one-car detached garage.
Situated in Knob Hill, this treasure of a home boasts a location in one of Rye’s most prestigious neighborhoods with award winning schools. The property is also close to town, granting fast and easy access to the many amenities available in this sought-after area. Residents enjoy fishing and boating right around the corner from Donahue’s Tide Mill Marina, golfing on the local 18-hole course, lounging on Oakland Beach, exploring the local wildlife preserve, and visiting the area’s famed Playland theme park, all in an area that provides close proximity to Manhattan via Metro-North railroad. Offered at $4,990,000 through Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty, this magnificent property presents a wonderful opportunity to purchase an immaculately designed home with sensational surroundings, located in one of Westchester County’s most desirable communities.
