179 Forest Avenue
Rye, New York, United States


With the impressive provenance of a 1904 design by Charles A. Platt, renowned architect of the American Renaissance movement, this iconic residence with its classic symmetrical design is timeless. Set back from the road on an enviable 1.30 acres with a series of level lawns surrounded in beautifully-designed formal boxwood and flower gardens, it's ready inside and out for today's style of living and entertaining. Dutch front door opens to a paneled entry, with marble floor and powder room, introducing the well-proportioned, light-filled rooms featuring a front-to-back living room with centered fireplace; library with fireplace and walls of custom cabinetry, and a paneled dining room, also with fireplace and wall of windows overlooking the gardens and the inviting pool. The designer kitchen has white marble counters with complementing herringbone brick floor, designer appliances, breakfast area, a side sitting room, adjacent screened-in porch, and a butler's station with upper glass front cabinetry and cherry counters. The second floor master suite has a fitted dressing room, fireplace, a luxury bath; and finishes with an additional five bedrooms, two with fireplaces, two full baths, powder room, and a laundry room. The lower level has a wine closet and loads of storage. Outside, a covered dining terrace overlooking the gardens and pool is a magical setting for al fresco entertaining. And a tucked-away 3-bay garage offers approximately 650 square feet of walk-up storage on the second floor. Timeless and turnkey to every detail, this impressive heart of Rye residence is moments to every convenience, and a short 35 minute train to Grand Central Station.
