Wiccopee House, Estate of the Day
Today's estate is classic upstate New York. The Wiccopee House in East Fishkill was built in 1894 and redesigned in 1929 by Aymar Embury II who was best known for designing the Brooklyn Bridge and Central Park Zoo. Th three story colonial has a traditional white clapboard exterior with black shutters with a wooden elliptical fan over the front door and a widow's walk. There are over 7,000 square feet of space including a beautiful formal library with built-in book shelves and fireplace, a study with hand painted tiles surrounding the fireplace and half round book shelves, and a drawing room with French doors to the side terrace. The formal dining room fills out the window-ringed half round and the kitchen has obviously had a redesign with state of the art appliances. Upstairs there are four bedrooms and a large master suite in the process of being renovated. The third floor is home to a game room, bedroom, bath (in progress), and a storage area. The land is nearly 18 acres with lawns, gardens, an in-ground pool with a cabana, clay tennis court, paddocks and a carriage house with two bedrooms. It is listed at $2.495 million.
