NYC Restaurateur Shelly Fireman Serves Up a Lakefront Bedford Estate for $12M

Restaurateur and founder of Fireman Hospitality Group, Shelly Fireman, and his interior designer wife, Marilyn Fireman, are adding their compound to Westchester’s real estate menu for $12 million. An hour from the bustle of New York City, where six of Fireman’s eateries are located, awaits the secluded and peaceful eight-acre listing in Bedford.

The couple purchased the Adirondack-inspired estate in 2010—just six years after it was built—and are now looking to get it off their plates. The home sits at the end of a long driveway preceded by a gated entrance and gatehouse. The six-bedroom, six-and-a-half-bathroom home totals 8,000 square feet of indoor living space. Each room boasts views of Blue Heron Lake, which is only accessible to the few neighbors who live around it.

As the creators of iconic New York City restaurants like Redeye Grill and pre-Broadway show dining favorites Cafe Fiorello and Trattoria Dell’Arte, it is not a surprise there is an eat-in kitchen and plenty of entertaining spaces here. The property also serves up plenty of fun. Aside from the lake and swimming pool, an indoor half basketball court, indoor climbing wall, game room, theater, and zipline ramp up the listing.

For someone with the same taste as the sellers, Rita Kirby and Annaliese Kirby of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty hold the listing.
