GLORIOUS FIELDSTON - With Its Lower Taxes Is A Grand Alternative To Competing Suburbs
This mid-century modern home is an oasis of tranquil beauty and quiet with a welcoming sunny wrap front deck and an off-the-living-room patio overlooking rock formations, planted backyard, and bucolic woodlands. Completed in 1967, students of architecture will appreciate the soaring 14-foot-high beamed ceiling living room and its overlooking chalet-like library and entertainment loft with its 'Mad Men' era appeal which includes a fireplace and wet bar. There are 5 bedrooms and 3 baths staggered over 4 floors. There is a delightful kitchen, a cheerful formal dining room, and a lower-level room perfect to be a Wine Cellar and Cigar Humidor or a playroom or more storage. There is a much-appreciated laundry chute to the washer/dryer in the basement and from there it's easy to access more storage and the car garage. With its quality of design, lofted open environment, skylights, and site-specific window placements, this home is filled with light, air, and sounds of songbirds in the morning.
This wonderful enclave, Fieldston, offers natural landscapes, soaring rock formations, gardens, and winding paths. It has its own security patrols with its own home association. It is an easy commute by bus, subway, or metro north, only 30 minutes from Manhattan by car (and bus). Fieldston is part of NYC and benefits from lower taxes than its competing suburbs. A charming village with quaint shops and a touch of the past, a quick hop to malls, all types of interesting cuisines, and Lloyds Carrot Cake Caf is a cornucopia of opportunities. Close by Van Cortlandt Park, with its 1146 acres, offers many a past-time and includes playing fields, playgrounds, tennis, a golf course, and horseback riding. The beautiful gardens of Wave Hill are a nearby respite. You can be part of The Fieldston Historic District in this delightful home to make your own. Showings are by appointment with 24hrs notice.
