The luxurious feel of this Tudor-style European manor house in Rye, NY, checks all the boxes for high-end living.
The home, located in one of Rye’s most desirable neighborhoods, was completely renovated, down to the studs, in 2004. The homeowners added a new roof, windows and new foundation, keeping only two rooms from the original structure.
“It’s unusual to find a newer move-in- ready home on an acre with a pool and pool house in walking distance to train and Rye’s downtown,” says Kim Arenas, realtor on the Compass founding team in Rye, NY. “Residents love this established neighborhood, so much so that I know of five families that have moved within the neighborhood. You arrive and you never want to leave because of the sense of community and ability to walk to town and train.”
Here, spending all your time at home is easy thanks to a large eat-in kitchen with double islands, which has a flow that’s ideal for entertaining family and friends. Also helpful are the multiple offices and virtual learning spaces, a workout area, wine cellar and six bedrooms. The master bedroom has a new master bath by Porcelanosa. French doors open to the large patio overlooking a pool and spa.
“We are seeing a real trend for upsizing instead of downsizing as families want a place where the children/grandchildren can all come together,” says Arenas. “This home is perfect for large gatherings: the kitchen with the double islands is the heart of the home, unless of course, everyone is out by the pool and pool house.”
There is statement lighting and radiant floor heating throughout the house. The current owners designed the décor them- selves. Special features of the home include four fireplaces, a cedar shake roof, custom millwork, high ceilings, a three-car garage, a full-house generator, indoor/outdoor speakers and Tesla charging station.
“Not only is it luxurious and beautiful, it is functional,” says Arenas. “I have several favorite spaces in the home. The master bedroom and new Porcelanosa bath is a true sanctuary. I love the pool house with the fireplace. I also love the screened in porch. I’m from the south so a screened-in porch is at the top of my list.
