In Westchester County last Thursday, Carolyn – an associate Realtor in my office - and I saw some magnificent homes!
Our first home, currently on the market for $12,500,000 in BEDFORD - NY,was an 1927 Georgian Manor house built with original bricks from a 16th Century English Estate. With over 23 acres, a pool, barn, twin gate houses and a multi car garage – we were in awe while viewing every room, including the maids quarters, attic and we even dared to view the basement! All the while wondering – Oh! – If These Walls Could Talk.
We moved onto a lovely Country House in POUND RIDGE, NY. This home was built in 1958 and designed by Livingston Elder. With over 2 acres, a pool, fruit trees and overlooking the Ward Pound Ridge Preserve, making this home a private oasis. It is currently on the market for $1,395,000.
Last, but not least, we viewed another home in Pound Ridge, The Byron Stratton House - a Historical Pound Ridge Landmark. This Colonial, with over 6,000 square feet on over 6 acres, was originally buit in Connecticut, then brought over and rebuilt in it’s current position in 1934. With 6 working fireplaces, a library, conservatory, gymnasium, pool, gazebo and pond - this home is a true gem. It is currently listed for $3,999,900.
Last week we viewed a townhouse in Rye, NY – a home in Scarsdale, NY – and then moved onto another home and townhouse in Pelham, NY. All of these towns and streets we passed to get to our designation, brought back early memories of when I lived in Westchester – growing up in Mount Vernon, NY and then moving to Harrison, NY.
I am very fortunate to have these wonderful memories and I am always anxious to assist buyers in their search to begin their memories. Also, it’s always a pleasure working with 1st time home buyers who are currently renting and now have the opportunity to stop handing over a check to their landlord and saying good-bye to their money – FOREVER!
When owning your own home, over time you may build equity into the home and it can be the single biggest tax break available. And don’t forget – YOU control the heat, YOU get to remodel and decorate it with YOUR style inside and out!
