If you are looking for a home that offers unparalleled elegance, luxury and charm, look no further than this spectacular Scarsdale estate. Constructed in 1914 on 3.75 glorious acres, the Colonial Revival mansion contains all the glamour of the gilded era with its impeccably designed architecture and gracious atmosphere.
Upon entering the 13,000 square-foot residence, visitors are not intimidated by the home’s grand luxury, but rather welcomed by its warm and inviting atmosphere. Meticulously maintained craftsmanship displays the residence’s impeccable condition of its original historic quality while including modern comforts and accommodations. The home was featured in the Fall Style 2013 issue of New York Cottages and Gardens Magazine as the annual Designer Showcase of Westchester, with twenty top designers giving proof of the home’s exquisite design and beauty.
Two gated entrance drives greet awe-struck visitors of the property, with the main entrance running past a two-bedroom, 1,580 square-foot guest cottage boasting a greenhouse and five-car garage. Just beyond this lies the main house behind hand-wrought iron doors that lead to a grand welcoming hall dressed in marble floors and a double-width marble staircase that perfectly reflects the glistening sun. This brilliance continues throughout the main floor with the home’s ten-foot-plus ceilings and expansive bright rooms that are enhanced even further by rare, silver leaf wall coverings. Additional sunlight streams in through a relaxing room with glass walls of windows, situated strategically between the first and second floors. A south-facing living room enjoys a bright ambiance complete with shining marble floors, pristine millwork and moldings, an intricately patterned ceiling medallion and one of nine stunning fireplaces.
The estate’s luscious outdoor grounds are seamlessly incorporated with the interior, offering delicate French doors that lead to a wide garden terrace with views of fine gardens and the landscape, as well as a private patio, swimming pool, entertainment area, changing rooms and tennis court. An impressive dining room also accentuates the natural surroundings of this country estate, featuring long Palladian-style windows that overlook undisturbed views. In addition, the main level contains a library with polished paneling, a gracious drawing room and a spacious kitchen suite complete with a butler’s pantry and breakfast room ideal for family dining.
Moving up to the second floor, onlookers will find an incredible master suite with a separate sitting room, walk-in closets, a marble fireplace and his and her bathrooms, each with its own closet. Four additional bedrooms with fine architectural design and finishes throughout, as well as a hall bathroom, complete the floor. The third level features a spacious setting of 9-foot ceilings with an expansive lounge, four more bedrooms and a bath.
Conveniently located in an area of nationally ranked schools, as well as just a short 30 minutes from NYC, this fine Scarsdale residence is unlike any other. Both a rare beauty and a perfect setting comprise the unique property—an iconic gem in Scarsdale’s history and landscape.
