A country estate in Chappaqua, New York, that is now on the market with Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty defines extraordinary in every way. The chateau-like home is extraordinary in its scale, featuring over 20,000 square feet of living space and occupying more than 86 private acres; extraordinary in its craftsmanship, with the design carefully executed by renowned architect Boris Baranovich; and extraordinary in its amenities, which effectively make the property a self-contained private resort. Offered at $24,750,000, the Georgian-style stone manor provides the opportunity to experience a lifestyle that is unmatched in this area.
The sun-flooded residence, known as Rosewood, is characterized by rooms that are at once grand and formal as well as comfortable, casual and inviting. A dramatic columned reception hall sets the stage, featuring chocolate onyx stone flooring, a two-story spiral staircase and a domed hand-painted ceiling. Beyond, the living room displays artisan crafted moldings and a wood-burning fireplace with antique mantle, while the banquet-sized dining room highlights a fireplace, detailed millwork and a bay window viewing the property. The gourmet kitchen is outfitted with professional appliances, custom-designed cabinetry, granite counters, a center island and even a sitting area with fireplace. Rounding out the main level are a two-story mahogany library, billiard/media room with fully equipped wet bar and great room with vaulted ceiling.
Six bedroom suites include a superb upper-level master suite, offering French doors to a deck, custom millwork, a private kitchenette, sitting room, dressing room, and marble master bath with a steam shower and antique vanity. The lower level provides unique amenities such as a stone 3,000-bottle wine cellar, fitness center and indoor gymnasium with a basketball court.
One of the key architectural features of the residence is its seamless integration with the gorgeous natural environment that surrounds it. The grounds almost serve as an extension of the home itself, with many of the rooms opening through French doors to patios, slate terraces, and the beautiful gardens and professionally manicured, rolling lawns. The property also provides an infinity heated pool with spa, pool house with kitchen and living/dining area, and tennis and sports courts. Of the 86 acres, 71 are wooded and under conservation easement, laced with walking paths and including an apple orchard and pristine stretch of lakefront with full access rights. This is a wonderful offering for the buyer interested in an exceptional architectural estate in a truly magnificent setting.
