Set up at the top of a gentle hill taking full advantage of captivating Hudson River views from Maryknoll's iconic tower, stretching up to the Tappan Zee Bridge, on to as far as the eye can see, this English-style Manor creates an incomparable setting for weekend or year-round living. Formerly the residence of the late David Swope, well-known Westchester philanthropist, environmentalist, and community leader, this 19-acre estate is mesmerizing. Completely surrounded in lush gardens reminiscent of the Cotswolds, it includes an inviting pool with multiple entertaining and sitting terraces taking-in the river views. Inside, the spaces are designed for relaxed entertaining. The flowing floor plan features a well-proportioned living room with dramatic trussed ceiling and majestic fireplace; sun-lit dining room with bay window; kitchen with large center island and sitting area with tall windows overlooking a lush hillside garden; and a second full kitchen for catering. A second-floor gabled wing with its own staircase has a paneled study with fireplace and large window framing the dramatic views; stepping into a large office area with half bath. A first floor master suite with fireplace opens to the front terrace; and with an additional four bedrooms, there's plenty of private space for family or guests. A winged addition features a 50' lap pool and sitting area with drink station, full bath, laundry and storage room, and an adjacent two bedroom caretaker's apartment with its own entrance. A detached 3-bay garage and a huge 2 story barn with full lower level is set just to the side. Minutes to every convenience, including shopping and Metro North train station (with its 38 minute ride to Grand Central), Hawkes View is the perfect setting.
