Building from the bones of a historic Tudor, Twin Oaks crafts English Manor combining distinctive original architectural details with contemporary features
Scarsdale, N.Y. –April 13, 2015 –Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty announced today that the firm has listed a new construction home by renowned Westchester County builder Twin Oaks Construction, who is transforming a historic 1926 English Romantic Tudor. The new home, scheduled for completion in late Summer 2015, will maintain architectural details from its roots while adding the luxury features and amenities expected by today’s high-end buyer. Dawn Knief and Mary Katchis of the company’s Scarsdale brokerage have the listing, which is located at 28 Garden Road and offered at $8,680,000.
David Fenton, founder and CEO of Twin Oaks Construction, has spared no expense to ensure that when the home is completed, it will host the most state-of-the-art amenities available alongside its historic architectural features. The result, he says, is the “the most spectacular spec home that Twin Oaks has ever built.”
“It is rare for a builder to invest this heavily in a home unless they are already working with a buyer,” said Knief. “But David’s custom homes are always unlike any other, and at 28 Garden Road, the quality is breathtaking and the finishes exquisite, offering everything the discerning buyer could possibly desire.”
Fenton said that his company will offer a 10-year structural guarantee to the purchaser of the property along with a full two-year comprehensive warranty.
“Twin Oaks’ mission is to build homes that are sustainable long-term, as well as to deliver the highest possible level of attention to detail and artistry for every project,” said Fenton. “In the case of 28 Garden Road, we’ve preserved the beauty of the original architectural features and enhanced it with all of the custom modern amenities. It is a home that marries traditional craftsmanship with contemporary ideals in the best way.”
Set on 1.5 acres in the Grange Estate area of Scarsdale, the 13,800 square-foot English Manor residence features such distinctive architectural elements as grand beams that were taken from a battleship frigate used in the War of 1812, a grand foyer with 28-foot vaulted cathedral ceiling, large double casement windows and historically correct moldings.
Contemporary amenities include an expansive media room with theater seating, a temperature-controlled wine room, radiant heat throughout the ground floor, and an infinity pool with waterfall, spa and cabana. Offering eight bedrooms with en-suite baths, the home also has a master bedroom with 13-foot ceilings.
