An Updated Circa-1935 Tudor Sanctuary 20 Minutes from NYC Seeks $6M

A classic Tudor home built in 1935 and designed by architect Charles L. Bowman was recently restored and upgraded—and now it’s on the market. Sitting in Bronxville, New York, just 20 minutes from Manhattan, it’s an ideal residence for those who want much more space (ie. a pool and backyard) but aren’t ready to abandon their beloved Big Apple yet. Asking $5.995 million, the charming home includes five bedrooms and four and a half baths across almost 5,000 square feet.

For buyers with an eye for character, the abode’s historic touches remain intact and ground the spaces. Downstairs, the living room is paneled in Cuban mahogany. On the staircase’s landing, colorful stained glass windows look over the 0.89-acre lot and pool.

The listing’s biggest surprise may be just how tailored to wellness and pampering it is. The primary suite features wood vaulted ceilings and a wet bar, but it also boasts two bathrooms. Between them, there is a hand-carved tub and a sauna, making it the perfect place to unwind after a long day. A large custom dressing room, which is as divine for OOTD moments as getting ready for Manhattan galas, completes the bedroom retreat.

The wrap-around terrace then makes 27 Hampshire Road the perfect spot for entertaining friends and family all summer. Newly installed high-tech features, including integrated sound and lighting, will help create ambiance.

Just around the corner from Sarah Lawrence College, the home could get high honors on the market. Perhaps a dean or professor will even pick it up. Kathleen Collins of Houlihan Lawrence holds the listing.
