The village of Bedford Corners, New York, located in the southeastern part of the town of Bedford, is often noted for its beautiful landscape of rolling hills. Perched atop one of the highest of these is Chateau Marmont, a stunning French Normandy Tudor-style residence that enjoys one of the most spectacular settings in all of Westchester County. From its elevated position, the property commands breathtaking 300-degree views, extending out over the gorgeous surrounding hills and west to the Croton Lake Reservoir. The views are taken in from multiple points on the property’s 7.6 acres, including the large heated pool and spa, columned cedar shake-roofed pool pavilion, and 2,000 square feet of bluestone-edged, flagstone patios.
A gated drive with Belgian block front and rear courtyards approaches the stately residence, which features a stucco façade, wood shake roof and limestone balustrades. A front door of mahogany opens to a 10,000 square foot interior characterized by the most sophisticated details, from extensive stonework to Jerusalem limestone flooring. The two-story entry foyer, offering a ceiling with decorative moldings and a motorized antique gilt chandelier, leads into the main floor’s formal spaces. The living room is outfitted with French doors to a balcony, fireplace with mosaic surround and audio/visual system, while the grand hall has high ceilings, limestone columns, herringbone pattern hardwood floors and an Italian fireplace. Additional spaces include a study/library with mahogany cabinetry and coffered ceiling, dining room with marble fireplace, and kitchen with high-end appliances, limestone counters, maple cabinetry and center island.
With five bedrooms and four and a half baths, the home features an elegant second-floor master suite with high tray ceiling, sitting room, fireplace and windows on three sides, as well as access to a dressing room that is located at the highest point in the house, offering amazing views. Boasting a steam room and dual walk-in open shower with sunset views, the master bath has all of the finest materials on display, including walnut travertine walls and floors, an antique wood and alabaster stone chandelier, Kerns-Wilcheck vanity cabinets and matching wood-carved sconces in the water closet. The home also has a garden level including a large main room with limestone fireplace, media room, gym, wine cellar and access to the patios and pool. Now listed with Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty, the magnificent views and exceptional craftsmanship of Chateau Marmont can be yours for $11,250,000.
