This Tudor revival on the grounds of Westchester Country Club was painstakingly restored and expanded by architect Ralph Mackin. Known for rich historical references and well-proportioned living spaces, Mackin updated this English manor with imported custom carvings, detailed moldings, classic quarter-sawn oak floors and leaded glass windows. “It’s a 1929 Tudor renovated to a level that very few people have ever seen,” says Michael McCooey, real estate agent at Houlihan Lawrence. “It’s basically a brand-new house renovated with the period in mind.”
This home is ripe for entertaining with spacious dining and living rooms, a bespoke kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances and grounds that provide the ultimate in outdoor living. Level lawns and specimen landscaping surround a lushly landscaped pool area with bluestone slate oversized heated gunite pool. Two pavilions housing a kitchen and a cabana with bath are joined by a covered pergola for al fresco dining. The property was the first developed on the country club grounds on the best parcel of land with the best views. “It overlooks the whole club grounds—225 acres of two golf courses,” says McCooey. “The views are extraordinary and kind of endless.” From every room in the back of the house are views of the upper terrace, pool and gardens, including boxwoods, roses, a cutting garden, annuals and perennials, and golf courses beyond. Yet, those who play the course would never know the pool is there.
