So ahead of its time. This sensational Colonial Shingle built in 1908—the year Thomas Edison declared “Anything, everything, is possible!"—is not only one of Bedford’s most exceptional houses in a premier estate locale, but the epitome of unpretentious modern luxury living. And modern working, of course. The ultimate family compound---long before the work-from-home concept--this spacious 20th century take on a classic colonial, along with a separate 4-bedroom converted Barn-style guest house, has been designed to accommodate individuals living, working, studying and playing together on one property. Emanating warmth and character, it boasts an oak-paneled library, multiple offices, vast kitchen, wine cellar, and 5 sunlit bedrooms. With mahogany porches that wrap around the home, it offers the ultimate inside/outside living experience that’s quintessentially American in its casual, rustic dignity. Its sublime 12-acre landscape features a long-tree lined drive, rolling lawns, flower and vegetable gardens, stone walls, and pool. Minutes from the village and just one hour from Manhattan, this captivating property is the perfect habitat for people and pets as well as birds, bees and butterflies, evoking a thoroughly 21st century country luxe lifestyle.
