A captivating English Country-style home now on the market with Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty takes full advantage of its Long Island Sound beachside setting. Secluded on a cul-de-sac between the Sound and Van Amringe Millpond, the residence was designed so that every room brings in the gorgeous water vistas that surround the property, just as the outdoor living areas provide exceptional venues for entertaining guests against a stunning waterfront backdrop. In fact, the historic area where the home is located is highly sought after for its tranquil seaside lifestyle, embodying the ideals of country living and outdoor recreation. The century-old community of Greenhaven on the Sound in Rye, New York, includes only 25 homes, offering a relaxed resort-style environment on a protected harbor with a private association beach and dock.
Offered at $5,195,000, this stone-and-half-timbered home dates from 1925 and was artfully renovated in 2007 by Bedford architect Di Biase Filkoff, Ceramic Design of Greenwich, Connecticut, and landscape architect DeLalla and Associates of Ridgefield, Connecticut. Unique design elements include hand-laid plaster, leaded-glass windows, exposed beams, magnificent millwork, and a beautiful tile mantelpiece in the living room by Ernest A. Batchelder, a renowned American Arts and Crafts designer.
The 4,374+/- square-foot home welcomes guests into a foyer with Ann Sacks slate tile flooring, opening through an archway to the living room with hardwood floors and inviting seating areas. The dining room offers French doors out to a terrace, leaded glass windows and a soaring beamed cathedral ceiling. The kitchen is crafted with the chef in mind, with a Viking six-burner gas range with double ovens, Sub-Zero refrigerator, custom cabinetry, and teak and Italian granite counters. Private bedroom wings are offered on separate step-up levels, with the master suite occupying its own level and featuring a large bedroom with fireplace, two custom dressing rooms, and a spa-like, pebble-accented bath with glassed limestone shower and pedestal tub. The home has three additional bedrooms plus a den with custom built-ins and a total of four and a half baths.
At the center of all, the enchanting views endure all year long. Outside, the porch and the sweeping stone terraces capitalize on the panoramic vistas and refreshing breezes, while a lovely naturalistic swimming pool resides right next to the pond. For the waterfront living enthusiast, this home at 508 Brevoort Lane presents a one-of-a-kind opportunity to acquire the epitome of the perfect waterfront home.
