With so many businesses working hybrid today, homeowners are looking for a compromise between easy access to New York City and the spacious and green advantages of suburbia. This six-bedroom home in Irvington, NY, blends both beautifully, says Debra Goodwin, real estate agent at The Goodwin Team, Corcoran Legends Realty. “It has everything people are looking for,” she adds. “If you are leaving the city, you have a yard but you’re close to the village of Irvington and five or 10 minutes from the train station.”
The modern colonial home has stone and shingle construction outside and a bluestone patio with stone knee walls and an outdoor kitchen for summer barbecues. The property is more than 1.5 acres of land and backs up to preserved green space, which provides direct access to hiking trails.
Inside, mahogany floors and coffered ceilings can be found throughout. A great room and chef’s kitchen open to a breakfast room and family room, providing lots of space for everyday living and entertaining. “It’s very private and there is more than enough space for a couple offices,” says Goodwin. A private office with quiet reading area, full walk-out finished lower level and six bedrooms upstairs give everyone a place to escape to with a laptop or book.
“If you are both working from the home and have kids, if you need a nanny, you have the lower level,” says Goodwin. “It’s perfect for an au pair or mother-in-law apartment.”
The home also boasts a wine cellar and gym.
Adds Goodwin about the property: “It’s a great lifestyle, great commute and gives you the space.”
