“There is no other house like this in Chappaqua or surrounding towns,” says Whitney Bagliebter, real estate agent for William Raveis in Chappaqua. Built in 1983, this contemporary home is one of the last projects prominent architect Keith Kroeger completed before he retired. “The house has a perfected modern-day flow,” says Bagliebter. “It’s incredibly functional in terms of the layout.” And the current owners, a former pro football player and a local artist whose work is featured throughout the house, have kept it up to date.
The open layout connects the great room, which boasts 14-foot ceilings, the dining space, which is surrounded by large windows, and the kitchen, which has a five-seat island and Miele appliances. The gas fireplace also has a custom cement mantel.
Upstairs, the master suite comes complete with spacious dressing room and a master bath that features radiant heating and rainfall shower. The additional four bedrooms each have an en-suite bath as well. And bonus for our current work-and-learn from home lifestyle: On the lower level, there is a home office and guest suite with private entrance.
“This is for the family who wants the high-end city feel of a condo in Manhattan but with privacy and six acres,” says Bagliebter.
Outside, a courtyard with trees frames the front of the home and around back, a shaded, relaxed patio provides an outdoor entertaining space that spans the length of the house and looks out over more than six acres of lawns and greenery. One of the best parts? The home’s perched position makes for unmatched sunset views. The 44-acre Glazier Arboretum abuts the property providing even more privacy and marked trails for hiking and bird watching.
The home is 45 minutes from Manhattan and minutes from downtown Chappaqua in the desirable Whippoorwill neighborhood. “The ideal buyer is someone coming from the city who wants that unique modern feel with, nowadays, wanting the property and the bigger footprint,” adds Bagliebter.
