Some of you may have seen this house before in the pages of our blog as we have featured many of the products seen inside. This house is 28 miles from New York City as the bird flies, and is perfect for living with children as it sits on 1.64 beautifully landscaped acres in the exclusive Purchase Estates neighborhood (home to many members of the Yankees team, celebrity chef Pino Luongo and others). It has a heated pool and hot tub with a special pool cover that fully seals off the pool at the touch of a button (perfect for young children!) and a fully fenced in yard for the safety of little ones and pets. The stately, brick-columned exterior (built in the Fall of 2005 and is in new condition) opens into the two story marble foyer with sweeping staircase, coffered ceiling and raised paneled millwork throughout. The family room has three sets of beautiful French doors leading out to a 4,000 square foot bluestone patio, rear garden and pool. The state-of-the-art gourmet kitchen is a chef's dream boasting an island with cooking sink, two dishwashers, a gourmet warming drawer, Viking range, hand painted custom tile, a full butler's pantry with a wine fridge, hammered sink and a walk-in pantry with custom shelving. The kitchen has a beautiful morning room which overlooks gardens designed by Susan Cohen, Lead Designer at the New York Botanical Garden. The third floor is finished and can be used as an extra guest area or large office and as if that weren't enough the basement is fully finished and provides an extra 3,000 square feet of living space, complete with a "kitchenette", family room area, guest room and two bathrooms. It is a perfect in-law apartment, guest suite, au pair floor (with a separate entrance) or just additional living space for kids young or in their teens!
Here are some additional photos of this fabulous home and you'll see many products from our website (The Well Appointed House) featured throughout.

Seen in the elegant and formal wood-panelled library are our Capitol Hill Lamps (isn't it great to see things in a room setting as opposed to only on the website? It makes a difference...)
The basement is quite large and here we see some of our things, too:
I spy some of our caned chairs:
Our Set of Six Orchid Wall Prints can be seen at the far end of the basement:
This girl's room is chalk full of Well Appointed House items! Our Garden Bunny Chandelier with white shades and optional crystal added; our White and Pink Candlestick Lamp; our Cherubini four poster bed painted in Antico White;
The house has a gorgeous backyard. Perfect for entertaining! There is plenty of space for a backyard tent - perfect for a mid-summer soiree!
So if you happen to live in the tri-state area and are considering relocating to Westchester, check out this beautifully, well appointed home! It is nestled between Harrison and Rye, NY and borders Greenwich, CT. There is plenty to do in Westchester! Happy house-hunting!
UPDATE! This house went to contract a week after this was posted! So it is off the market now and this post will be updated soon!
