Location, luxury and masterful design—That’s how to best describe this totally transformed Colonial home in the highly sought-after Hillandale neighborhood of Rye Brook, N.Y. Originally built in 1955, the outstanding residence underwent a full renovation in 2006, resulting in a promising and supremely comfortable lifestyle complete with the finest modern amenities, elegant features and so much more. Rye agent Melissa Kaminsky represents the property, which is now for sale and offered at $2,695,000. “The home was gutted, expanded and completely renovated,” explains Kaminsky. “Compared to the original structure, it is truly night and day.”
Located at 18 Hillandale Road, the five-bedroom, six full and two half-bath residence is light and bright with elegant formal rooms, great casual spaces and a fabulous, superbly equipped chef’s kitchen. The sumptuous master suite includes a sitting area with a fireplace, as well as a radiant heated marble bathroom with a steam shower, jetted tub and large walk-in closet. “The master bedroom suite is really gorgeous,” comments Kaminsky. “In fact, the whole second floor is extremely well done. Every bedroom has wonderful closets and they are all en-suite. Laundry is on the second floor as well.”
Other standout features include a lower level gym, sauna and playroom, as well as an expansive mahogany deck overlooking an acre of lush lawns—an especially extensive parcel of land for Rye Brook. The home additionally offers a level outdoor play space, three-car garage and fully updated mechanicals. “It’s rare to find a three-car garage and so much square footage in Rye Brook. The home boasts over 5,600 square feet of interior space, plus an additional 800 square feet of finished space in the basement.”
Imagine having all this while also benefitting from the area’s award-winning Blind Brook School District. “This home really does have it all.
