The neighborhood of Orienta in Mamaroneck, New York, was initially established as a summer home destination frequented by affluent residents of New York City, and it remains a sought-after enclave today, home to a number of distinctive estate properties. One of the first-built residences out on the Point, a scenic waterfront stretch deep in the heart of Orienta, is the stately Colonial-style home at 1248 Greacen Point Road, constructed in 1924. The residence is the perfect embodiment of all that makes the area so desirable, starting with the views. The home enjoys an exciting, prestigious and protected location tucked away between Larchmont Harbor and Delancey Cove, which grants the property some of the most stunning and panoramic views, filling the exquisite residence’s individual rooms. The views can accurately be described as endless, encompassing sublime sunsets over the water as well as the boats and the yacht club regattas, and reaching to the Whitestone and Throgs Neck Bridges, which sparkle like jewels at night.
Set on just over an acre of mature grounds, the property caters to those who wish to be surrounded by outdoor pleasures, including a private dock for a runabout boat, a deepwater mooring that can accommodate a sailboat of up to 40 feet, a small man-made beach, and even a rock climbing wall for the athletic type. The constant sweeping water vistas combined with the boating, swimming, fishing and sailing make this a property that is both enviable and peaceful, epitomizing the vacation lifestyle. With its gardens and tiered terraces, the heavenly surroundings also provide a wonderful spot for either informal or elegant entertaining, as well as everyday living.
The elegant historic home has been subject to numerous significant renovations, fully bringing it up to modern standards. With five bedrooms and five baths, the four-story residence features 16 rooms in total with 5,701 square feet of living space, including a basement that offers a separate entrance along with a mudroom, workroom, office, storage and utilities. A two-car attached garage is also provided. Just a short 30-minute commute away from New York City, this beautiful property is ideally situated where the cove meets the Sound, providing the opportunity to live it up in spectacular waterfront fashion—all for $5,800,000 through Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty‘s Rye and Larchmont Brokerages.
