Four distinct properties are now for sale in the desirable waterfront enclave of Greenhaven in Rye, NY. Whether purchasing just one of the homes, or maybe joining family or friends to simultaneously share a coastal compound lifestyle, buyers will find this boundless residential opportunity a rare one indeed. Each stunning estate is high-end and of the finest quality, one residence even serving as the former home of the prestigious enclave’s founder and developer, Vivian Green. Rye broker Louis Katsoris represents all four listings, including an acclaimed contemporary constructed by a famous architect on Shadow Island, located just across the Long Island Sound.
For anyone who has not yet heard of Greenhaven, it is quite the place to be! The community consists of a small neighborhood of diverse and affluent waterfront homes situated in a private pocket between the towns of Rye and Mamaroneck. According to Business Insider, the secluded area, which resides on the east side of the village of Rye, is the 10th richest community in America, housing some of the highest net-worth residents in all of Westchester County. Also known for its prestigious Rye Neck school system, which is ranked 39th within the state of New York by US News & World Report, the quaint village is no doubt the ideal place to settle down.
“This hidden jewel of southern Westchester is the best kept secret for international and Manhattan residents alike looking for an upscale and private waterfront weekend retreat or convenient year round waterfront residence,” said Katsoris.
Having all four estates for sale at the same time presents an interesting opportunity, their close proximity and range of styles offering an intriguing proposition to related parties considering making a move together. In this, prospective buyers would essentially be creating their own private yet connected compound for close friends or family to enjoy. “This unique opportunity has certainly made a few buyers sincerely consider a joint move as it isn’t an opportunity often available on the waterfront,” said Katsoris. “Many of our clients come to this area based upon the recommendations of friends that recently bought properties. The prospect of being able to now buy distinct, private waterfront homes together on the same street could raise significant attention from related buyers who want to own properties close together and maintain their social ties.”
Regardless of design, all the estates have the common appeal of their incredible waterfront setting, which offers panoramic views and exceptional shoreline amenities.
1 Shore Road is the landmark estate that was previously owned by Green. It’s no wonder why he once chose to call this place home, as it rests on 2.3 acres of elevated land with views of the Long Island Sound from every vantage point. Visitors are welcomed by a gated entry at the end of a private lane, which leads to the 10,000 square-foot iconic residence, built in 1925. Not only does the structure boast exquisite features and craftsmanship, but it also offers luxurious amenities including a heated, shore-line pool, tennis court, a beach with a cascading waterfall, a greenhouse, large level lawns and impressive space both inside and out to capture the home’s nautical backdrop. The property is offered at $9,600,000.
Neighboring this beautiful home is 3 Shore Road, a beach house retreat with a distinct Tudor style and direct access to the Long Island Sound. Offered at $5,999,000, the 5,800 square-foot residence sits on 1.23 acres of protected land with waterside lawns, elevated dining patios and a private dock—perfect for setting sail. The residence’s spacious interior features a complete renovation with an inviting front courtyard, unique architectural detail, sleek finishes and an open floor plan to embrace the home’s breathtaking outdoor surroundings. Imagine having all of this plus your own private beach! It doesn’t get much better than that.
508 Brevoort Lane is a charming English country home located just across the street. The residence is especially unique in that it is flanked between two bodies of water—the Long Island Sound and Van Amringe Pond. This being said, the property enjoys sweeping panoramic and diverse water views, in addition to a well appointed home with an open floor plan that displays antique details coupled with a smooth contemporary flair. A private pool and spa, located just steps away from a beach and community dock, complete the residence, which is offered at $4,395,000.
Upon looking out across the water, one will lay eyes on the gorgeous 707 Taylors Lane, a one-of-a-kind contemporary residence originally constructed by mid-century architect Ulrich Franzen. The home has since been completely renovated with the highest level of finishes and style, boasting walls of glass, various balconies and expansive decks to take in the surrounding water views that reach all the way to the Manhattan skyline. Accessed by a private causeway that leads to 4.02 acres of land known as “Shadow Island,” this estate is without a doubt extraordinary. The property is offered at $6,975,000.
“It’s extremely rare to find so many significant new listings in such a small section of Westchester County at the same time that are all so unique,” said Katsoris. “From magnificent estate-style to contemporary and traditional, each listing is very different, but all offer the same unparalleled waterfront amenities, privacy and school system, as well as a convenient location barely 35 minutes from New York City.”
