280 Van Cortlandt Park Avenue
Yonkers, New York, United States


High atop a rocky outcropping in Park Hill sits this majestic Colonial with an Arts & Crafts flair. Built by the American Real Estate Company in 1910, this striking residence is enhanced by massive stone pillars, half-timbering, diamond-muntinned windows, peaked roofs and protruding bay windows.Inside there are more amazing architectural details. The formal first floor rooms take you back to yesteryear with their beamed ceilings, inlaid parquet floors, classic oak paneling, window seats, fireplaces, French doors, built-in leaded-glass bookcases, original sconces and graciously proportioned rooms. There's also a tiled sunroom that leads out to the open deck as well as a full bath on this floor.On the second and third floors are seven bedrooms and three full baths. Plenty of room for home offices, upstairs den, kids' play space or for all the guests who will be visiting you in your new home!The house is beautiful, One of Park Hill's grandest, and has undergone a number of renovations: young roof, replacement windows, renovated baths, some gleaming refinished floors (2nd & 3rd floors) and most of the interior has just been painted. However, there is still some TLC and cosmetic improvements needed. The property has been priced to its current condition and is being sold as is.Because of the home's prominent position, every room is filled with sunlight and you can even see the George Washington Bridge from the covered rooftop porch on the third floor. Even though you're sitting in the treetops, the private rear access road (Hill Court) allows for convenient easy no-step access to the house.At over a third of an acre, the property includes two separate lots. The house sits on one side and there is a enormous level yard on the other side. Besides it being a fabulous yard, the lot also has the size requirements to qualify as a building lot. There is potential for it to be a legal buildable lot if sewer in Hill Court is upgraded at the new owner's expense.Great location with close access to parkways (east to the shore or north to the mountains) and a brief 25 minutes to midtown Manhattan via Metro North or 10 minutes to NYC subway. Two short blocks to Park Hill Swim/Racquet/Social Club. Call Jane at 914.262.8836 for more information or to schedule a private showing.
