1899 Victorian: Shingle
Yonkers, New York
Park Hill Beauty
Wide bluestone steps welcome you into the sunlit stair hall with original stained-glass windows. The living room is amazing with a gorgeous beamed ceiling with elaborate crown molding & the curved tower alcove. Beautiful unique antique windows & the woodburning fireplace enhance the high ceilings & gleaming oak floor. French doors lead into the formal dining room with its bay of windows. Then you step out of the formal part of the house into a space designed for everyday living. Enormous home office space big enough for 2…or 3!
Amazing kitchen with oak cabinetry with champagne finish, granite countertops, beautiful island with breakfast bar, a eating area big enough for family and friends, 2 pantries & comfy window seat. Steps away is the fabulous family room & a full bath that’s been totally renovated….perfect layout & plenty of room to hang out on the main floor which is rare in an older home.
The 2nd floor is a bright & airy with natural light streaming in unobstructed by any neighboring homes on 3 sides. The master bedroom has its own fireplace and adjoining sitting room or nursery, the second level of the curved tower. The 4 aitional bedrooms are very spacious; a full & half-bath complete this floor. There’s also a walk-up attic with 3 great storage rooms & plumbing for a future bath.
Plenty of options to enjoy the outdoors as well….French doors in the kitchen open to an expansive decked patio, perfect for summer BBQ’s. Level yard is ideal for lawn games or sports & the wraparound porch offers front row seats that face sunsets over the Palisades.
This remarkable home has been restored/renovated with love & creativity artfully combining a magnificent blend of old & new. So many improvements including vinyl “cedar” shingles, stonework, sidewalks & driveway, new & refinished oak floors, sheet-rocked walls & ceilings (with insulation), new interior doors, young boilers (4-zone heat), ductless air conditioning on first floor, much of interior recently painted & new carpet throughout the second floor. Great location with easy access to parkways (east to the shore or north to the mountains) and a brief 25-minutes to midtown Manhattan via Metro North or 10 minutes to NYC subway. A few blocks to Park Hill Swim/Racquet/Social Club.
