Victorian elegance abounds at this breathtaking historic home in Yonkers, NY. Situated in the southwestern community of Park Hill, a neighborhood that lies atop a bluff overlooking the Hudson River and views of the New York City skyline, this 1898 Victorian-style residence is dramatic and unique in both its style and offerings. Bronxville agent Rosanne Fluet represents the property, which is currently listed for $1,495,000.
Park Hill was developed in 1888, and is remembered as one of the first planned neighborhoods in the New York metropolitan area. The community is primarily known for its vintage homes in distinct styles including Victorian, Tudor Revival and Georgian Colonials.
This particular 7,200 square-foot Park Hill gem, located at 150 Alta Avenue, contains five bedrooms and three full and two half baths. Having been fully restored in 2002, the grand Victorian breaks free from the customary symmetry of style, featuring a multi-level foyer with a soaring staircase and upper mezzanine balcony, original stained glass windows and fluted columns. Continuing on inside the house, a regal parlor greets both residents and visitors with a fireplace and lovely views of the property’s extensive surrounding gardens, which feature waterfalls and even a koi pond. A spacious, oval-shaped dining room features an additional fireplace and original ceiling frieze, a broad band of painted decorative details located just below and surrounding the ceiling. Modern amenities are also included in the home, and are present in its well-appointed kitchen and butler’s pantry, as well as two spectacular spa baths, one of which contains a serene water wall feature. Perfect for entertaining, the residence also offers a formal living room, media room, billiards room and a semi-circular family room complete with original stone walls.
“This peaceful oasis, located just minutes from public transportation and a quick drive to Lincoln Center, uniquely exudes Victorian charm amidst sleek, modern amenities,” said Fluet. “Between its impeccably kept interior and Zen-like grounds with ample space for relaxing outdoors, 150 Alta Avenue is quite the find. I look forward to whatever the future holds for this gorgeous Park Hill home.”
