A Cheerful Victorian Home with a Revamped Carriage House Asks $2.1M in Chappaqua

The Charles Griffith House is on the market in Chappaqua, New York. Although historic and charming on the outside, the interiors are chic and reflect the simpler style and comforts of today, without all the frills of 19th-century interior style. The circa-1867 Victorian manor comes complete with a carriage house, heated pool, and spa. Freshly reduced in price, the bright yellow homes are seeking $2,099,000.

The main house is light and airy, with tall windows and high ceilings. Filled with neutrals and a mostly-white palette, natural views shine as do timeless details like wood moldings. The three-story home includes five bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, two fireplaces, and a wine cellar. A wrap-around porch hugs the house and provides another space to gather.

With 3,115-square-feet across the 3.25-acre estate, there are many sweet spaces where someone can entertain company. The carriage house, which sits next to the pool, is a laidback place to invite guests–especially during the warmer months. There is a great room complete with a wet bar, in addition to a kitchen, sleeping loft, and bathroom.

Only 30 miles north of New York City, this home could be used as a weekend getaway or a primary residence. Kids can splash around in the pool or play in the yard, which has space for a sport court. Darling restaurants and shops are nearby for those who love spending a day about town.

Madelyn Ricciardi of Houlihan Lawrence holds the historic listing, previously asking $2.299 million.
