This special home has both organic and designed beauty. “It has idyllic views of the water and it’s very tastefully decorated,” said Nancy Neuman, manager of Coldwell Banker’s Rye/Harrison office. The property is surrounded by a tranquil landscape rich in flora and fauna, egrets and ospreys. Formal English and rose gardens, patios for outdoor entertaining and an infinity pool are among the many features of the tiered grounds.
Stunning water views of Long Island Sound and Kirby Pond can be seen from almost every room in this stately 1940s Colonial.
Inside, you’ll find floor-to-ceiling windows in the informal dining space just off the fully-equipped gourmet kitchen with a six-burner range, antique wide-plank walnut floors, seafoam marble countertops and oak cabinetry. The home is made for entertaining, with a second dining room for more formal events that features custom mahogany walls and hand-carved mirrors.
“It has an Old World feel with beautiful architectural details throughout,” says Neuman. Additional floor-to-ceiling windows wrap around the sun-filled family room that has custom built-ins.
This upstairs bedroom, one of five in the main house, offers privacy, with an adjacent sitting room just beyond a beautiful archway and a serene, private deck with sweeping vistas of Long Island Sound.
Guests will be comfortable during their stay in the spacious 2,000-square-foot, two-floor guesthouse, with original barn siding in the billiards room and office on the first floor and a second floor featuring a fully-equipped kitchen, two bedrooms, two bathrooms and living room.
