Famous Broadway Producers List $13.2M Westchester County Estate
Fran and Barry Weissler, the Tony Award-winning Broadway producers behind iconic musicals like Chicago and Waitress, are looking to sell a special spread. Built in 1950, the Westchester County estate seems like a fairytale property from another world. Described by the listing as “like owning your very own Storm King,” the home masterfully melds architecture with breathtaking landscaping, sculpture, and all that jazz. Asking a steep $13.2 million, 35 Schoolhouse Road truly exudes the old razzle dazzle.
An 18.4-acre slice of pastoral land houses the estate, with a four-bedroom main house and a four-bedroom guest house sitting at the center. The total of 8,900 square feet of interior space certainly impresses, holding vast rooms with views of the flourishing and ornate grounds. A modern country aesthetic guides the design, with a particularly en vogue green kitchen warmed by a fireplace. But it’s amongst the property’s exteriors where the stars of the show perform.
Atmospheric and serene, an amphitheater sits flanked by two rows of hedges. Christopher Plummer, James Earl Jones, and the New York Philharmonic have all performed in the outdoor theater under the stars. A bronze sculpture and two fountains also dot the sprawl of gardens. All about natural beauty, the property doesn’t need a bit of stage makeup to wow an audience.
Melissa Colabella and Anthony Lando of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty have the listing in Waccabuc, New York.
