Today's home is a Norman-style estate in the town of Harrison, New York. The six-bedroom home, built in 1931, was designed by architect Frank J. Forster and is on 1.9 acres. A gated, stone-pillared entry adds to the feeling of stepping into the past. The home has its original Ludowici tile roof, stone and original brick construction and three turrets. A hand-carved Gothic door opens into the stone reception hall with powder room. To the right is a turret with a circular staircase embellished by medallion windows. An arched entry leads to the sunken living room with wood ceiling beams. The living room has a Norman-style fireplace with built-in side seating, random-width pegged floors and the luxurious space to accommodate numerous seating arrangements.
Another nice feature is the paneled library with a corner fireplace includes a built-in wet bar. The formal dining room has a fireplace, hand hewn beams and wide plank oak floors with French doors leading out to a private stone terrace. An updated eat-in-kitchen has a reclaimed antique terra cotta floor, tumbled marble counters and a center island. There are modern appliances, an adjacent laundry room, new powder room and mud room. Double doors lead out to the porte cochere, four car garage and beamed-ceilinged tack room.
On the second floor there is a master suite with the original tray ceiling and a cozy fireplace and sitting area. The renovated master bath has a Jacuzzi and separate shower plus a dressing area with floor-to-ceiling closets. There are two bedrooms with connecting bath, two bedrooms each with private baths, an additional wing with bedroom, new bath and an expansive family room. Outside a free form pool has its own terrace and is surrounded by a wrought iron fence. This home is listed at $3.5 million with Michele Flood of Coldwell Banker.
