Even in the Westchester County village of Dobbs Ferry, NY, the 4.2 acre Cricket Hill estate seems a world removed from modern life 20 miles away in New York City. The 6,000-square-foot stone and shingle country house is both characterful and updated for modern living, but the enchanted grounds, including a terraced walled garden, free-form pool and grape arbor, appear unaltered by time.

An iron gated entry leads up to a circular drive and pillared portico. Past a gracious entry hall, the home has been meticulously restored to its 1901 vintage and updated with smart and green-home features.

Generously proportioned rooms, framed with crown moldings and hardwood floors, include a parlor big enough for a grand piano and a large living room.

A chef’s kitchen is outfitted with top-of-the-line appliances and a granite island. Picture windows overlook the home’s gorgeously landscaped kitchen gardens with a built-in barbecue and stone fire pit for outdoor meals.

A cozy library looks like the perfect winter retreat. A window-wrapped breakfast room provides all-season sunshine.

No detail has been spared consideration in the home’s six bedrooms and six baths.

The grounds of this country estate are the real star. Terraced plantings and hardscape date back a hundred years. Latticed brick and moss-covered stone walls surround a grape arbor, and picturesque pathways connect broad lawns. A verdant grotto shelters a free-form stone pool.

The estate abuts 70 acres of nature preserve, with wooded trails on a private lane overlooking the Ardsley Country Club.
