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.
From the mother of pearl fireplace to the piano converted kitchen island, my clients and I were in awe! The view of the Hudson River was breathtaking – no wonder this property is location for many famous films and photo shoots.
Only 30 minutes from NYC – where else would you be able to step back in time like that!
