Right away, the entrance foyer of this century-old Tudor says, “let’s have a cocktail party,” with room for more than 20 people and a window seat to take in the spectacular views of the sound. 

The home allows buyers today to entertain in grand fashion reminiscent of the times when it was first built. In those days, Larchmont and surrounding sound towns were dotted with weekend and summer homes of wealthy New Yorkers looking to escape the bustle and grime of the city. “The architect kept the character of the exterior of the house and blended old charm of the Tudor revival with modern amenities,” says real estate agent Rania Khouri of Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty. “The new layout created a big eat-in kitchen with plenty of storage and a big family room right off the kitchen, a concept that didn’t exist in old homes.”

The home is aptly named Point ‘O View by the previous owner. The name was derived from the positioning of the house on the property—the facade facing east toward the sunrise and the back facing west where the sun sets on Premium Point. “For buyers looking for privacy, a water view, a pool, location and proximity to the city and a house of this quality, this house checks all the boxes,” adds Khouri. 

Interiors have been updated with modern fixtures, cabinetry and lighting and each room is bright and light. Off the foyer, a large living room and another smaller living room with a wet bar are open to a balcony with views of the water. To the left of the foyer, a large formal dining room has a wood burning fireplace and the large eat-in kitchen leads through sliding glass doors to a deck and the pool beyond. Beyond the kitchen, a large family room offers panoramic views of the pond and Long Island Sound. 

When the sun is out, the exterior offers many opportunities for catching rays, from dining on the terrace, to sunning by the heated in-ground pool. Stroll down to the water’s edge where a renovated boathouse designed by Marla Pasareno from I-Ray Design in Brooklyn provides the perfect backdrop for sunset cocktails or meditation. “Pasareno’s vision was to turn the two-story house into one room with a cathedral ceiling adorned by a massive chandelier, cedar-washed walls and built-in platform sofas. The current homeowners love watching July 4th fireworks from nearby New Rochelle from the privacy of their backyard.
