Classic Colonial In A Fabulous Walk To Town Location
Located at the end of a private access way off High Ridge Ave, this wonderful residence includes hardwood floors, a fabulous entertaining-friendly layout, charming touches such as vintage brass door handles, and tons of space to relax and regroup. A few minutes on the sidewalk leads you to the center of the Village and all it has to offer including cultural amenities like the Prospector Theatre, the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, ACT of CT, the community dog park, state-of-the-art library and the Winter Garden ice rink, as well as five star restaurants, boutique shopping, spas, fitness centers and yoga studios, ball fields, and schools. It is also in an ideal location for commuting to Manhattan with the Katonah Train Station shuttle stopping only steps away.
The welcoming foyer opens to a den with built-in bookshelves and two large divided light windows, as well as offering access to the light and bright living room. Complete with a wood burning fireplace and two sets of vintage French doors, the room is a comfortable place to curl up with a good book on a chilly night. The formal dining room includes a bay window and adjoins the white, eat-in kitchen with room enough for a 6-person breakfast table, as well as an island with a breakfast bar and lovely views through multiple casement windows. A pass through connects the kitchen to the vaulted family room where skylights and a large picture window bring the outside in. Anchored by a fieldstone rock wall with a wood-burning fireplace at its center, the family room is the hub of this comfortable farmhouse. Access to a half bath, main floor laundry and a back stair to a vaulted playroom over the garage, make this the perfect layout for an artist’s studio, kids’ hang out area, or whatever your heart desires.
The private level of the home includes a large master suite bathed in sunlight and featuring two walk-in closets, a sitting area and a spacious bathroom with a double marble-topped vanity, deep jacuzzi tub, and an oversized glass shower with a bench seat. Three additional, large bedrooms with ample closets and access to a full bath complete the floor.
The finished lower level includes a great recreation room with above grade windows and a third wood-burning fireplace, perfect as a media or games room, as well as a bonus room with wall-to-wall mirrors that could be used a gym or a guest room. Additional storage space is also found here.
Outside, the brick patio provides ample space to grill and enjoy fun summer barbecues, while overlooking ancient stone walls and a level yard. The front and side yards provide additional space for all manner of activities. Large enough to practice soccer, lacrosse and other sports, the yards still border other homes, creating a true neighborhood feeling. Move right in!
