Bucolic Bronxville Estate with Fun Amenities and Ornate Style Wants $10M
If New York City’s Bronx borough was a town, it may have been called something like Bronxville. But just 15 miles north of Manhattan, that name has long been taken, bestowed on a Westchester County village. For those who love the quiet of nature and want to be minutes from the city, this mansion on one of the area’s tree-lined streets may be a perfect fit. Expansive and private, the property has the steep price of $10 million.
Enjoying 2.67 acres, the English-style estate is lush with luxurious amenities and meticulous landscaping. But the house at its center stands imposing enough on its own, an ode to the rustic architectural trappings of the Tudors. Constructed in 1911, the home spans 10,206 square feet and counts 7 bedrooms and 7 full bathrooms within its floor plan. Sturdy carved doors guide the home’s flow, with ornate moldings adorning up the walls and sometimes even finding their way to the ceilings.
That’s not to say that the structure’s modern perks, of which there are many, aren’t striking. Besides having app-controlled amenities inside, there’s a lighted tennis court, putting green, and 75-foot pool on the grounds. The interiors’ hallowed, museum-like atmosphere is also offset by a home gym and recreation room. A beautiful freeze-frame of the past updated with the ease of the 21st-century, the estate is listed with Louise Baudoin of Houlihan Lawrence.
