It’s hard to pinpoint the exact style of this Westchester home; there’s a Spanish-style-roof, a Tudor configuration, and a stone cottage-esque facade. But this eclectic mix somehow makes you feel like you’ve stepped into the French countryside, highlighted by a lovely patio complete with a grape arbor. Built in 1888, the five-bedroom home has been completely renovated inside and is currently asking $1.6 million (h/t CIRCA).
The 19th-century home is 4,213 square feet and also has a two-car garage with a loft space above it, perfect for a guest suite or home office. The romantic yard is fully fenced in, and there are real grapevines growing above the trellis. Another major selling point is the Irvington/Dobbs Ferry location. The house is just a 10-minute walk to the Metro-North station and then a 38-minute train ride into Grand Central. Plus, it’s right across from the Old Croton Aqueduct trail.
Because of the home’s many turrets and dormers, there are cozy nooks sprinkled throughout, such as this rounded window seat.
There are 10-foot ceilings and hardwood floors throughout. In the living room, an oversized fireplace anchors the room.
The kitchen does, in fact, have a French country-style, with distressed wooden cabinetry, classic blue-and-white backsplash tiles, and a black farmhouse sink. There’s a central island, as well as another floating island that separates the eating area. From here, walk outside to the patio.
A formal dining room provides a third eating option, and right off this room is another cozy, semi-circular seating nook.
Off the formal living and dining rooms is a more casual den.
Upstairs, the bedrooms are accented by pitched ceilings and charming alcoves.
The master bedroom has a large en-suite bath. In addition, there’s a semi-finished basement and a sauna/steam room.
