28 Derby Lane is one of only four homes perched high on a private cul-de-sac, on over an acre of wooded property in sought after Legend Hollow in Irvington, NY. The Knickerbocker is one of the largest models complete with a grand foyer, lavish master bedroom suite, mid-level custom built library, double height living room with windows on three sides, elegant dining room with bay windows, chefs kitchen with breakfast room and cozy family room with beautiful stone fireplace. Covered porch and deck off the breakfast room with access to the back yard and pool area.
Just off the kitchen you will find a huge pantry, mudroom, laundry room and back stair access to a finished bonus room with bedroom, sitting area and full bath perfect for an in-law or an aupair suite. So much room to expand for your family and friends.
One of the really attractive features of the master bedroom suite is a 2 sided fireplace. You can gaze at the fireplace while you are relaxing in bed and you can also see up and into the lovely separate sitting room on the other side. The sitting room would make a great nursery or even a second home office. Custom his and her closets and lavish master bath in addition to the master bedroom and sitting area I just described, make this master suites one of the nicest and most complete I have ever seen. Enjoy seasonal views of Halsey Pond and distant Hudson River views from the master bedroom. Three additional family bedrooms, one with an ensuite bath and a Jack & Jill bath serving the other two bedrooms completes the second floor bedroom level.
There is also a walk out basement with a full bath, bedroom, exercise room and recreation area. Plenty of storage in the lower level as well. The house is simple, functional, yet elegant.
What makes living in Legend Hollow so special and unique? The neighborhood is set against a back drop of wooded conservation land, the fairways of the Ardsley Country Club, water features such as Manor Pond and a natural path to Halsey Pond. You will feel the sense of nature, peace, quiet and all the comforts of home that a Legend Hollow lifestyle has to offer.
Irvington, NY is one of the most picturesque villages in the Rivertowns. I have lived here for over 15 years and really love it. My children go to school in Irvington as well. It’s our home, it has a small town feel yet has such easy and quick access to the greatest city in the world, NYC. There are wonderful restaurants, parks and local theater. The Village itself is quaint and charming and is considered one of the most sought after places in Westchester.
