The historic mansions of Riverdale never fail to impress, and this gem is no exception. Built in 1899 and known as the Esmeralda, the home has maintained many of its historic details over the years. Throughout formal dining and living areas, as well as all nine bedrooms, you’ll find finishes like hardwood flooring, oak doors, wood-beamed ceilings and fireplaces. The property also comes with an impressive degree of privacy, as you enter through a long, gated driveway. For this level of exclusivity and historic charm, the price tag is $4.129 million.

In case you doubted the name of this estate, it’s written into the wrought iron fencing. Past the private gates you’re led into a massive property with the freestanding home surrounded by green space.

The mezzanine level boasts two fireplaces, one in stone and one in marble, as well as wood-beamed ceilings across a sprawling living room. The other living room has a more old world aesthetic, with wood lining the floors, fireplace and windows.

The kitchen connects to an enclosed sunroom, which then leads to a lovely outdoor patio.

The home, in fact, has more than one enclosed sunroom–in the front and back of the house–for the homeowner to look out at the spruce trees that surround the property.

The upper floors hold more living space as well as the bedrooms. In total, the Esmerelda holds nine bedrooms, five full bathrooms and one powder room, all lined with windows.

There’s also a finished basement, and the listing suggests there’s enough room outside to install a pool. Basically there’s plenty of space for add-on perks to this stately mansion, which has stood up well against the test of time. Be sure to check the gallery for many more shots of the interior and surrounding private property.

    This is a gorgeous house, but what you don’t see is it is actually in a crappy location. It’s on the service road that runs parallel to the Henry Hudson Pkwy.
