This gated six-acre estate in Chappaqua, N.Y., asking $3,500,000, is elevated in more ways than one. Atop a gentle hill at 280 Douglas Road, a winding drive leads to the main house and surrounding grounds. A tennis complex, pool, gym, and sauna bring a wealth of amenities into your everyday home life; beautifully curated formal gardens, rolling lawns, and wooded groves offer a level of outdoor living you might not expect in such a civilized location.

The main house offers five bedrooms and five baths. The home’s architecture combines traditional style with modern updates. The interiors are dressed to the nines, and the home’s generous proportions mean there are plenty of opportunities to make the space your own.

Throughout the home are walls of windows that showcase the enchanting grounds that surround it. In the living and family rooms, full-height palladium windows bring in all-day light. Triple French doors open onto a brick terrace from a glass-enclosed porch.

A sprawling country-style kitchen opens onto the glass-wrapped porch for a choice between indoor or outdoor dining as weather permits. Integrated appliances with decorative tile accents join a center island and plenty of counter space. A wall of classic casement windows overlooks the landscaped garden just outside.

Bedrooms are light-filled and large; the primary chamber offers a private terrace. There are more than enough rooms to create a private library, office, den, or playroom as needed.

When you step outside the main house, this peerless property begins to reveal its real finery. Separate tennis and saltwater pool complexes include a freshly renovated cabana and a sauna, and a beautifully curated garden invites strolling. The Chappaqua home is just a mile from town and the Metro-North Railroad.
