This vintage Tudor home at 294 North Village Avenue in Rockville Centre, New York sits on three-quarters of an acre, where you’ll find an in-ground pool, a tennis court, an outdoor kitchen, and a three-car garage. At the front of the Long Island home is a decorative boxwood hedge maze in the style of a formal garden. Asking $2,725,000, this something-for-everyone estate has four bedrooms, a finished third floor, and bonus space in the basement.
It takes an aerial view to fully appreciate the custom-built diversions that fit tidily on the home’s well-manicured grounds. Up close, the home’s external half-timbers and pitched rooftops are recognizable as elements of Tudor-style architecture. Within, bespoke millwork and three fireplaces frame each room.
A warm wood stair ascends from a subtly elegant foyer. To one side, a lush living room is done in beige, with no surprises and plenty of comfort.
Though it’s not an up-to-the-minute style, serious appliances, coffered ceilings, and a French country vibe provide the eat-in kitchen with a welcoming vibe. A formal dining room with herringbone-patterned hardwood floors allows for undistracted entertaining.
The freshly-renovated primary suite features a fireplace and a fabulous custom closet. Also on this floor are three more bedrooms and a full bath. Upstairs on the third floor is an additional suite with a spacious living area, two bedrooms, and a full bath, as well as attic access.
There are plenty of options and plenty of room indoors, but it’s the home’s outdoor spaces that steal the show. In the back is a gunite pool set at a jaunty angle, adjacent to a full-sized tennis court. Manicured greenery welcomes visitors at the front of the house, tended easily with an in-ground sprinkler system. A detached garage offers room for three vehicles and/or office space.
