In a gorgeous wooded corner in the Bronx neighborhood of Spuyten Duyvil (just south of Riverdale on the banks of the Hudson River), this charming Tudor home at the aptly-named 3033 Scenic Place has breathtaking views from just about every corner. Asking $1.85 million, the four-bedroom home boasts the hand-crafted finishes often found in the area’s classic Tudors including wood paneling and hand-hewn beams, while picture windows offer a front-row seat to the surrounding woodlands
A turret serves as the entry hall to the house. The living room surrounds a stone hearth and a working fireplace. Classic casement windows offer partial Hudson views; hand-honed beams frame the space.
A sunroom with walls of windows opens to the home’s patio and south-facing garden. To one side is a cozy nook for casual dining–or just observing nature.
A raised dining room allows for formal dining and entertaining.
A renovated eat-in kitchen has granite countertops and a stone backsplash. Thoroughly modern appliances contrast with a quaint leaded glass window that separates the dining and kitchen spaces.
Also on this floor are an artfully embellished powder room and a small chamber that could be an office or guest room.
Downstairs you’ll find a den with beamed ceilings, a laundry room, and storage. Also on this level: entry to the home’s two-car garage.
The top floor holds three bedrooms and two baths. Two of the bedrooms have partial Hudson views. The master is a charming oasis with two exposures, clad in rich wood paneling.
In addition to a patio, the grounds feature stone steps and a stone wall and surrounding planted areas, with enough room, as per the listing, to add a pool, playground or garden. Though you may feel like you’re deep in the woods, there’s a Metro North train station just a few blocks away when you need to make it to Grand Central in 25 minutes.
