Located in the Riverdale neighborhood of Fieldston in the Bronx, the former home of noted New York labor attorney and mediator Theodore Kheel is for sale for $3,800,000. Built in 1918, the Georgian Revival-style brick home at 407 West 246th Street–known locally as Kheel House–received a complete renovation in 2008, two years after the home’s current owners purchased it from Kheel; still very much in evidence are its classic brick facade, graciously-proportioned rooms, high ceilings, bespoke millwork, and four fireplaces.

The 3,736-square-foot, five-bedroom home was originally designed by architect Dwight James Baum. It now offers every 21st-century comfort, including upgraded electrical systems and central HVAC.

Enter through an elegant foyer that opens into the living room. From there, French doors access a cozy library and a party-ready game room/den.

A contemporary shaker kitchen offers a breakfast bar with seating and top-of-the-line appliances. The kitchen opens directly onto a casual family room with access to the patio outside. There’s also a formal dining room, more in keeping with the home’s original style

Also off the living room is a heated sunroom. We can’t imagine a better spot for a daily workout.

There is a private first-floor guest room with a full bath and a mudroom. On the second floor is the home’s primary suite with a marble bath and custom-fitted private dressing room.

There are three more bedrooms–one with an ensuite bath, plus a hall bath and laundry. A spacious office has built-in storage, display shelves, and directional lighting.

The home’s outdoor spaces have a veneer of history, including balconies and bluestone pavers. Wave Hill public garden and Riverdale Park are nearby and the 1 subway stops just a few blocks away, making the privately-owned neighborhood both a refuge and a vital part of New York City life.
