An Eclectic English-Style Estate Asks Almost $4M in Westchester County
On Bogtown Road—an address in decided contrast to this home that lies along it—an English-style country estate is on the market. Set on a 19.7-acre sprawl seemingly plucked from the pages of a charming and lovely fairytale in Westchester County’s North Salem, the retreat spans a series of buildings and vignettes each ready to serve a different interest or purpose. Asking $3.975 million, the price includes ample space as well as both luxury and whimsy.
Of the various spots and structures that dot the tree-filled acres, the main house is unrivaled in its warmth, scale, and serenity. Built in 1936, the home counts 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms within approximately 4,000 square feet. Oversized fireplaces and antique wood-beamed ceilings enhance the undeniable coziness, while walls of windows make the lush forest landscape look like a framed picture.
For months when the weather is warmer, a vast patio serves as the first of many exterior spaces. Dinners beneath the trellis and afternoons spent poolside would alone satisfy, but this property cascades into vegetable gardens and apple orchards without a second thought. A waterfall feeds a pond not far from a writer’s cottage worthy of Thoreau. A workshop, root cellar, and chicken coop also appear. So, whether an owner has farming inclinations or enjoys putting pen to paper, there’s endless room to do what they love.
