When the 2007 country estate in Bedford Corners, NY, was built, designers left no detail overlooked. “The home is a custom build and is very high quality,” says real estate salesperson Angela Kessel of Houlihan Lawrence. “It was designed to look like an older home with tremendous charm and character, but was built for everyday modern living.”
Reclaimed materials from Rockefeller and Vanderbilt estates were used throughout the home for many of the finish work, including 18th century pine paneling, antique mantels and custom millwork. “The living room and library has gorgeous, reclaimed wall paneling,” adds Kessel. “The mantel in the dining room is from a very old prominent estate, as are the cupboards in the office.”
The center of the home is the country kitchen with top-of-the-line finishes including Sub-Zero, Wolf and Bosch appliances and a large island for prep work and seating for five. It opens to a cozy family room with one of seven fireplaces and a bay window overlooking the rear patio.
“The ideal buyer is likely either a young family who wants location, charm and space or empty nesters who are looking for a family home with flexible layout and room for the grown children to return home on the weekends or holidays,” says Kessel.
Weekends will soon be spent outdoors as the home has more than 2,000 square feet of covered terraces. Inside, the home has a full spa on the lower level with a 75-foot in-door lap pool, bath, changing room, sauna, gym, media room and billiard room. Upstairs, two offices make working from home easy, but Manhattan is 50 minutes away. On the weekends, walk numerous local hiking trails or visit local shops, restaurants or cultural destinations in a matter of minutes.
“The location is one of the very best in Bedford,” says Kessel. “The house is 100 percent turn-key and move-in ready which is very attractive to all buyers these days.”
