Renowned Artist Lists an Imaginative Westchester Home for $7.2M

A classically designed mansion in Westchester County proves that grand doesn’t always equal stuffy. The impressive, 10,000-square-foot manse, listed for $7.199 million, holds unique flair courtesy of its artistic owner. One of the sellers is renowned artist Simone Kestelman, who treated the entire custom-build as a blank canvas. Art installations and individualized works are woven within both the grounds and interiors, breathing life into spaces that would typically go untouched.

Kestelman’s works, such as an oversized pearl chain and a grouping of ceramic tulips, adorn the front yard’s trees and flowerbeds, converting the trip to the front door into a whimsical journey. A foyer with soaring ceilings opens up to modern living areas highlighted by glass walls and elements designed by Kestelman herself. The generous second level accommodates the majority of the six ensuite bedrooms and seven and a half bathrooms, including the simplistically contemporary master suite. Additional treasures lie within the finished basement, complete with a gym, sauna, and a temperature-controlled wine cellar that doubles as a tasting room equipped to store 900 bottles.

Not only does the property exemplify how art elevates a home, but it also utilizes modern features like energy-efficient geothermal heating and smart-home technology to allow inhabitants to set the “mood” of the house. Each detail was customized and produced to lead the home into the future with ease.
