Nestled on a hillside this magnificent colonial home was built in 1925 by a well-known architect Dwight James Baum for J H Iselin along with the homes on either side for his three children. The house is situated on two lots on over half an acre of landscaped land adjacent to the historic Fieldston District in Riverdale. The second lot is a buildable lot with a legal right of way.
The house has high ceilings and bright sunny windows throughout. Features include:
- A lovely entry foyer
- A large living room with working fireplace that leads to a sunroom
- A large kitchen with custom cabinetry and full size appliances
- A formal dining room that is connected through a sliding door to a beautiful garden which includes two large and one small patio
- Four large bedrooms (two en-suite with private bathrooms and one with a working fireplace)
- Three full baths and one half bathroom
- Ample closet space, two vented attic eaves on 2nd floor and a roof attic
- A finished basement and an attached one car garage with 3-car driveway
The 250-acre Fieldston Historic District established in 1910 by Major Joseph Delafield is right behind the house. Fieldston has round-the-clock private security patrols, and the streets and common areas are maintained by the Fieldston Property Owners Association.
The house is conveniently located close to shops, well-known private schools, Wave Hill, Riverdale Horse Stables, Van Cortlandt Park, and a 20-mile paved bike trail from Van Cortlandt Park to Tarrytown. Easy access to public transportation (15 min. walk to MetroNorth, 2min. to Express Buses and 5min. drive to 1 subway train).
