A stunning residence designed in the English Country style, now offered through Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty, was designed to fully take advantage of its lovely waterfront setting. Privately situated on a cul-de-sac between Van Amringe Millpond and Long Island Sound, the home offers an outdoor living environment that is perfect for entertaining with its waterfront backdrop, as well as water views from every interior room. Indeed, the home is located in an area of Rye, New York, that is frequently sought after for its beachside living, outdoor recreation and country atmosphere. With only 25 residences, Greenhaven on the Sound is a historic, century-old community that provides residents with an association beach and dock, protected harbor and tranquil resort-like lifestyle.
The stone-and-half-timbered home, offered at $5,195,000, was originally constructed in 1925. In 2007, Bedford architect Di Biase Filkoff, landscape architect DeLalla and Associates of Ridgefield, Connecticut, and Ceramic Design of Greenwich, Connecticut, completed an artful renovation. Today the property retains several fine design aspects including exposed beams, leaded-glass windows, exceptional millwork, hand-laid plaster, and a living room tile mantelpiece created by the notable American Arts and Crafts designer Ernest A. Batchelder.
Encompassing 4,374+/- square feet of living area, the residence invites visitors into a foyer with Ann Sacks slate tile floors and an archway leading into the living room, featuring comfortable seating areas and hardwood flooring. The home has a chef’s kitchen complete with Viking six-burner gas range with double ovens, custom-designed cabinetry, Italian granite and teak counters, and Sub-Zero refrigerator. The dining room has a dramatic beamed cathedral ceiling, leaded glass windows, and French doors accessing an outdoor terrace. Step-up levels include individual bedroom wings, with the whole-level master suite offering an oversized bedroom with fireplace, two dressing rooms, and a spa-style bath with pedestal tub, glassed limestone shower and pebble accents. Three further bedrooms and a den are also included, and the home has four and a half baths in total.
Throughout, the mesmerizing views last all year long. The vistas and soothing breezes are taken in from the porch and the stone terracing, as well as the naturalistic swimming pool, which lies beside the pond. This residence at 508 Brevoort Lane is truly a unique opportunity for those with a passion for waterfront living, presenting a rare chance to purchase the epitome of the ideal waterfront property.
