“The most unusual aspect of this home is the depth of the design and décor elements,” says April W. Saxe, licensed real estate salesperson at Houlihan Lawrence. “The buyer will inherit beautiful wall coverings, designer carpets and custom built-ins rarely seen of this caliber.”
Located near Long Island Sound (it’s walking distance to the water) this Rye colonial has a beachy feel and is ideal for those who like to host family and friends. The outdoor kitchen area lends itself to entertaining, especially families who like to grill. “The outdoor TV is perfect for watching football games in the fall,” says Saxe.
The dining room (above) has silk wall coverings and plenty of natural light.
The family room has coiffured ceilings, a large fireplace and custom window treatments.
The house sits on a dead-end street a few blocks from the beach and near Rye Town Park. The garage was custom built.
The chef’s kitchen is a cook’s dream with Wolf, Subzero and Bosch appliances, Cararra and natural stone countertops, and custom cabinetry throughout.
Outside entertaining comes easy with a built-in grill, beverage center, Lynx appliances and stone countertops. The current owners make frequent use of the outdoor TV and entertain friends and family year round on the patio.
All five bedrooms are en suite with custom vanities and stone finishes. Each has a large closet. The master bedroom, seen here, has a tray ceiling.
The lower level has a wet bar and wine refrigerator, a large recreation area and a gym. The bedroom and bath on the lower level is a good fit for an au pair or mother-in-law suite.
Says Saxe: “The perfect buyer for this home is someone who appreciates a sophisticated but casual aesthetic.”
