Although just a 25 minute train ride from Manhattan, NYC, the property has a private in-ground pool and garden area. Our first floor includes a library, dining room, living room, kitchen, and formal entry hall. We just completed a large renovation and created a gourmet kitchen with a custom designed french Lacanche Range, marble countertops, a butlers pantry with wine fridge and a new eat in breakfast nook. The second floor has three bedrooms. The master bedroom with a queen bed and full bath is on this floor along with a queen guest room and a third bedroom with a queen size bed and a small pull out sofa. The third floor has three bedrooms (each with a full size bed). The third floor also has an additional bathroom, with a shower and claw-foot tub. The front of our house has a deep wrap around porch that is a wonderful spot to enjoy your morning coffee or afternoon cocktails.
