A Mamaroneck, New York, property now on the market with Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty is simultaneously rich in history and fully updated to accommodate all of the demands of 21st-century living. The history of the property dates back to 1661 when John Richbell purchased it from the Siwanoy Indians as part of a larger parcel of land, which eventually was sold to the prominent Heathcote family. The circa-1847 had its beginning as the gardener’s cottage, part of a grand waterfront estate, and the property maintains its original Colonial-style design, but has been expanded over the years to become the spacious and stately manor that it is today. Now this elegant gem features a unique floor plan of 5,737 square feet, its walls still resonating with echoes from centuries past even as they offer every convenience for the modern homeowner.
Standout living spaces among the home’s 14 beautiful rooms include a lovely entry with hardwood floors, a gorgeous library with a fireplace to enjoy on those cool Westchester autumn evenings, a formal dining room, magnificent great room with the home’s second fireplace and French doors overlooking the yard, living room and family room with access to outdoor patios, and butler’s pantry with its own wet bar and wine refrigerator that can house 350 plus bottles of your favorite vintage. The large and superb cook’s kitchen with separate breakfast nook is outfitted with every amenity desired by the modern chef, featuring double ovens, two dishwashers, granite counter-tops, and a butler’s pantry with its own wine refrigerator and wet bar. The two-story home offers plenty of space for family and friends with six bedrooms and six and a half baths including a luxurious master suite with two walk-in closets and bath with his and her vanities. The home also has both 4-zone central cooling and heating and a security system.
Outside, the home resides in a beautiful setting of just under an acre, surrounded by trees and gardens and lined with low stone walls. A heated and terraced pool, serviced by a charming cabana, is ideal for taking swims at any time of day or night. A detached two-car garage completes the offering. One would not be remiss to refer to this property at 915 Skibo Lane as the perfect country setting for the quiet and peacefulness it has to offer. The residence also benefits from its location in the prestigious Orienta area within the desirable community of Mamaroneck, frequently sought after for its village setting, boating facilities, Long Island Sound shorefront, fine restaurants and close proximity to New York City via Metro-North railroad. For $2,999,000, this significant offering is available for the consideration of those seeking a combination of notable history and modern luxury.
