Description

Set back deeply from the road, down a winding driveway framed by century old copper beech trees, the iconic Porte Cochere House sits on its exquisite 0.84 acre lot with a unique history! Originally built in 1880 as part of the grand house next door, it was detached and moved slightly east in 1978 onto a modern foundation. The original elegant bones and charm are still fully intact, complemented by stunning new improvements. With 11' ceilings throughout, the center hall opens to the right into an exquisite, spacious living room with a deep bay window and gas fireplace. To the left, the brand new custom kitchen features a wall of windows, bespoke cabinetry, Thermador appliances, pot filler, marble countertops/backsplash and eating peninsula. The seamless symmetry between old and new includes the matching deep bay window which creates a perfect dining area. The custom french door w/transom extends the living space to the new bluestone terrace w/knee walls. Upstairs the primary bedroom is en-suite with a walk-in shower, and two additional bedrooms share a hall bathroom with tub. Hallway nook with tall window is a naturally inviting spot for a desk. The 2-car detached garage, built in 1984, completes this extraordinary package. Rare NON FLOOD PLAIN location between beach and town center! Easy stroll to Metro-North train, restaurants, library, boutique shopping and theatres as well as to Penfield & Jennings beaches and marina. EZ potential to finish the basement and walk up attic.
