This gracious and magnificent home was built in 1913, designed by the renowned architect, Wilson Eyre (also responsible for CNN’s Anderson Cooper’s Rye House, Litchfield County, CT) and located in Ardsley Park, beside one of America’s oldest and most distinguished private golf clubs, the Ardsley Park Country Club. The history and elegance of the property is evident throughout.
The beautifully maintained home is surrounded by 2 acres of landscaped gardens, offering spectacular views over the golf course. The sun-filled entry offers soaring ceilings and oversized windows framed in hand-hewn wood trim. This elegant design is maintained in the oak paneling and solid wood pocket doors, and refined architectural details throughout the home. The entry foyer flows into the spacious living room with a large fireplace and through to the sun room with arched picture windows, enticing you to hide away with a book and enjoy the warmth of the winter sun or sit by the roaring fireplace in the cozy library. The airy formal rooms are designed as ideal entertaining spaces for both large and small gatherings, and meals are equally enjoyed by the fireplace in the dining room or dining al fresco on the large patio.
The layout of the property is wonderfully suited for comfort and modern living, including the 6 spacious bedrooms and 5 bathrooms over almost 6000 sq ft. Many of the rooms open out on to a large terrace at the rear of the house. The property offers ample land for a pool and a tennis court.
Ardsley Park has a rich history as the favored area of the social elite of the early 20th century. The Rockefellers, Vanderbilts, Elizabeth Taylor and Stan Getz all owned properties in the Park. In this sought-after enclave, many of the most desirable homes have views of the Park and Golf Club.
