Cottagecore and Fairytale Fans Take Note: A Storybook Bronxville Stunner Seeks a Buyer
For fans of the cottagecore aesthetic or of fairytales and Disney films, a new listing in Bronxville is a dream come to life. With no shortage of character, the French Normandy Tudor has stood for almost 100 years but features all the modern conveniences of today. On the market asking $6.75 million, the New York estate covered in greenery is mystical and move-in ready.
The 1927 Tudor sits on over half an acre just minutes away from the center of Bronxville. From the majestic facade crawling with ivy, the charm carries inside effortlessly in the form of rich wood beams and paneling. While the entry and library reflect the ornate vibes of the early 20th century, the updated kitchen is a breath of fresh air. Designed by London-based firm Smallbone of Devizes, its lighter palette and new appliances brighten the main floor.
Although it looks and feels like a quaint cottage, the roughly 8,200 square feet of space carrying across three floors prove otherwise. More like a castle or manor for most, it holds eight bedrooms and five bathrooms. Back staircases and separate wings provide privacy for the primary bedrooms while enchanting the floorplan’s enchanting flair.
To round out the home’s interiors, the unique top and bottom floors are perfect for working from home or entertaining. Venture to the basement wine cellar or media room when guests come over or retreat to the chic attic spaces to dive into hours of creativity.
As with any fairytale setting, nature is pivotal to the ambiance, too. The stunning grounds were designed by renowned horticulturist Timothy Tightman and will have avid gardeners swooning. Mariellen Sullivan Carpenter and Susan French of Houlihan Lawrence hold the Westchester County listing.
