Old world estate on 10 plus acres set on a peninsula jutting out into the reservoir. Completely refurbished in the last few years. Driving up the long winding drive past the original orchards, the barn and a four-car garage, you arrive at the main house with all its grandeur. The sprawling veranda and covered front porch are just the beginning of your tour of this fabulous, rich in history property. Wandering from room to room is a magical experience, be it the multiple fireplaces, wood floors or the spa like baths. The library exudes warmth with the massive fireplace, the exquisite wood paneling, the charming window seat and the three French doors out. There is a guest bedroom on the main level perfect and private with an en suite bath and yes, its own fireplace. The kitchen has every bell and whistle for today's entertaining lifestyle, service sink, enormous island, wine/beer cooler, the list is endless. Rounding out the main level is the billiard room and the office. Upstairs on the private quarters level is the master bedroom to top all master bedrooms. When you have two sets of French doors out to your private terrace overlooking the pool and grounds, you never want to leave. The master includes the spa bath with its own terrace and dressing area, the luxury is evident at every turn. There are three additional bedrooms all with their own whimsy and charm on the second story. With 13 doors to the outside, the draw to nature of the property is apparent. The rear courtyard terrace overlooks the spectacular pool with two waterfalls. Meandering up the stone staircase to the tennis house, incredible charm awaits you. The architectural significance of the smallest building on the property is not lost. It boasts a massive two-story fireplace, arched ceilings, new kitchen and bath and elegant stone patio overlooking what once was the tennis court, easily re-established. Moving on to the original horse trails through the property and get a sighting of the eagles that have been nesting and hatching their young perched over the reservoir for decades. Upon your descent back down to the main house via the wide path, the feeling of the reservoir is evident through the stately trees and perennial gardens. Stop and enjoy the massive outdoor fire pit or take a ride on the tree swing, before your departure. This crown jewel of Yorktown is convenient to NYC by either car or train for a perfect weekend getaway camp or ideal year-round estate.
