Not only does this Westchester county home have a unique Mediterranean style, but it sits on almost a full acre with a grandfathered private tennis court, something that’s no longer allowed in this submarket. Located in the centrally located Murray Hill Estate section of Scarsdale, the home spans just under 4,000 square feet and has seven bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms, and a beautiful courtyard that’ll make you think you’re in Tuscany.

Enter the home via a circular driveway that’s set against the expansive front lawn full of flowering trees.

Inside, Mediterranean-style architectural features are on full display, including French doors, Juliet Balconies, arched doorways, terra cotta floors, and beamed ceilings.

The sweeping staircase adds more drama.

Though not pictured, there’s a formal fireplace in the living room.

For great indoor/outdoor entertaining, the dining room is right off the kitchen and opens to the magical courtyard.

There’s room for several seating areas on the patio, and it’s made more charming thanks to romantic climbing vines and an architectural arch on the facade.

A lovely sitting room with a wall of built-ins opens to a formally landscaped section of the backyard.

Several of the seven bedrooms feature Juliet balconies.

The area around the tennis court has been perfectly manicured to allow for spectators and a beautiful backdrop.

Scarsdale is just a 30-minute train ride from Grand Central. As Mansion Global explains, “Murray Hill is the oldest part of Scarsdale and is right in the middle of town.” This section “is known in particular for its estate-like homes,” and since it has its own zoning regulations, most of the homes sit on larger-than-normal lots.
