About This Property
Positioned at the base of the South Mountain Reservation, this engaging Tudor presents a fine picture. Resting on a third of an acre of beautifully landscaped grounds, this secluded setting belies the fact that shopping, recreation, top rated schools and NYC commuter trains are only minutes away. While the summer setting is bucolic, the winter provides a skyline view of New York.
Step inside where the center hall foyer serves as a fitting introduction to this beautifully maintained and remarkable home. The spacious living room features deep rope ceiling moldings, a beamed ceiling, random plank oak floors and is distinguished by its large fireplace. Bookcases flank the French doors to the family room addition. Across the foyer, the dining room features built in corner cabinets and a bay front window.
Clearly the center of activity, the family room opens into the kitchen and breakfast room creating a wonderful social setting where everyone will naturally gather and linger. French doors open to a balcony overlooking your very private yard. The breakfast area redefines casual dining with its sky blue dome and arched windows.
Even the most experienced home cook will appreciate the chef’s kitchen cream colored cabinets, Italian granite counters and large windows which surround the professional six burner stove with grill. Both the French stucco hood and the Portuguese tiles above the cooktop were custom made for this stunning kitchen.
Four bedrooms and two full baths are located on the second floor. All bedrooms have ample closets and beautiful treetop views. The second level hallway includes a built in window seat with storage, linen and utility closets.
A wide staircase leads to the large fifth bedroom on the third floor which features front and back dormer windows. Plumbing is present on the third floor to install an additional full bath. There is access from the hallway to a large walk in attic which has the potential for finishing.
Outside, the property with large specimen trees offers peace and privacy. There are three charming “garden rooms” in which to relax and entertain. There are over 1,500 daffodils and many other perennials planted throughout the property.
In a home that requires only your furnishings and personal touch, this is a unique opportunity to join this thriving community as you enjoy a home you will be proud to share with friends and loved ones.
