This massive house, located at 4547 Livingston Avenue in the Bronx’s beautiful historic Fieldston neighborhood, is 17 rooms deep, boasts 10,450 square feet, and is now available for $7,950,000 (h/t Curbed). Built in 1911 with fieldstone quarried from the property, the home was last sold in 1984 for $451,000 to philanthropists Harvey and Jayne Beker. Over the past 30 years they meticulously renovated and expanded the property with no detail left behind. The mansion now boasts an indoor lap pool with Jacuzzi, a heated driveway, a paved terrace that can accommodate a 100-person dinner party, and an “au pair suite.”
Historic details like stately crown molding, pocket doors and oak flooring are just some of the highlights that still adorn the home’s original section, which includes a double living room with adjacent sun room and paneled study.
Rich cherry floors and trim can be found throughout the home’s stunning addition that includes a 40-foot lap pool finished with Jerusalem stone and Venetian plaster walls. And when your legs are tired from swimming laps, you won’t need to worry because an elevator connects this floor with the garage and office below.
The master bedroom has some amazing details as well, including four massive windowed closets, a gym, and a marble bath with step-in shower and heated towel racks.
The kitchen’s state-of-the-art appliances can lend a hand with your entertaining needs, as it’s equipped with a La Cornue range, two Gaggenau wall ovens, a steam convection oven, three Miele dishwashers, three sinks, four warming drawers, multiple refrigerators, a huge pantry, Bulthaup cherry cabinetry and antique French limestone floors. There’s also a brick-paved terrace that can accommodate a large dining tent for up to 100 seated guests.
Situated on one-third of an acre of landscaped gardens, this property is one of the highest points in Fieldston and easily allows for 360-degree views of one of New York City’s prettiest blocks.
With six bedrooms, eight bathrooms, an au pair suite with separate entrance, a playroom, two offices, two terraces, a Gazebo, outdoor play area, and brick driveway with snow melt system, this home truly has it all. The location is not bad either.
