On a tranquil cul-de-sac in Westchester County’s Scarsdale, this pretty 1920s stone Tudor has a surprisingly notorious reputation: It was allegedly the home of infamous ’20s gangster Ben “Bugsy” Siegel. It has, for a new century, been restored to its original glamour with the addition of a luxurious kitchen and modern conveniences.

The home is filled with details like rich wood paneling with an early-modernist vibe as well as stone walls and floors, coffered ceilings, and walls of windows.

The first level features a glass-enclosed sunroom and a formal living room with wood-paneled walls and a fireplace.

The charming-yet-modern kitchen is big enough for the whole mob, complete with premium appliances. A formal dining room and a family room with French doors to a deck are adjacent.

The grounds are just as lovely, featuring stretches of green lawn, a patio, a very cool raised garage–and a legal accessory apartment for guests, family or to use as a rental property. The house has been updated for 21st-century living with a security system and a sprinkler system to keep things running smoothly inside and out.
