Stone Mansion Overlooking Hudson River…In Yonkers!

GetMedia.ashx170 Shonnard Terrace – It’s not everyday that you get to step back in time to the late 1800’s! When that opportunity comes about, you would jump right on, right?

That was completely my mentality when asked to view a Yonkers’s mansion over the weekend. From the moment I made the appointment to view this house, I was anxious to see what we were in store for.

MLS Remarks: THIS HOUSE LITERALLY PAYS FOR ITSELF…. Magnificent stone mansion overlooking the Hudson River. Featuring 6 bedrooms, 7 baths, 11 fireplaces, this grand but very livable manor house also includes an octagonal Ballroom, uniquely detailed main Kitchen with Subzero/Miele/Garland appliances adjoins a Breakfast Room which in turn gives onto a formal Dining Room fitted with hand-carved French Rococo panels. On the ground floor, a marble Entry Hall opens onto an oak-paneled Living Room with an adjacent Conservatory as well as a charming Morning Room, Billiard Room, and upholstered Turkish Room/Library. Upstairs, the spacious Master Suite opens onto a marble terrace and a split-level Observatory with sweeping river views. Three additional beds/flexible-use rooms and 3 full baths complete the upper floor. The lower level houses laundry, wine cellar, storage rooms, staff quarters, a two-story 3-car garage, even a private chapel. Established film and photo location with a six-digit income.

Only 30 minutes from NYC – where else would you be able to step back in time like that!
