Topridge, Estate of the Day
Today's estate is one we have seen before. Topridge was our estate of the day in 2007 back when it was listed for $9.8 million. Now the estate in Tuxedo Park, New York is headed to auction through Concierge Auctions on November 19. This grand old estate is on 19.3 acres. The main home was built circa 1909 and designed by renowned architects Delano and Aldrich. The sale is being conducted in cooperation with listing agent Cindy Booth of Towne & Country Properties Sotheby's International Realty.
"Topridge is a special place, and my family and I enjoyed many wonderful years there. However, now that my children are grown, I find myself spending more time at my residence in Florida," stated seller Heidi Steiger.
The grounds include the original tea house with field stone fireplace and a children's playhouse. The home itself is a classic of the era. It has a marble floored rotunda with a hand painted ceiling and four sets of French doors offering access to the grand salon, formal dining room, library and ground floor site. There is a morning room with a private courtyard garden and greenhouse for taking your morning coffee. The home has a modern kitchen with granite countertops and new appliances. The home also has a pool wing which includes a wet bar, billiards area, and 50-foot heated pool. The ground floor suite includes three bedrooms and a living room with kitchenette. The second floor has three bedrooms and a second floor office located overlooking a media/screening room with drop down home theater screen and surround sound. A third suite has two additional bedrooms.
The property is one of the larger ones in Tuxedo Park, a village tucked behind a manned gate house. Tuxedo Park is home to a variety of grand summer "cottages" built between 1885 and the early 1900s, showcasing Tudor, Spanish Mission, Georgian, Jacobean, Gothic Revival, Queen Anne and Dutch Colonial Revival styles from many of the period's great architects.
