LIFE AS A REALTOR – Realtor Open House Day (5)

In Westchester County last Thursday, Carolyn – an associate Realtor in my office – and I saw some magnificent homes

  Our first home, currently on the market for $12,500,000 in BEDFORD – NY,was an 1927 Georgian Manor house built with original bricks from a 16th Century English Estate.  With over 23 acres, a pool, barn, twin gate houses and a multi car garage – we were in awe while viewing every room, including the maids quarters, attic and we even dared to view the basement!  All the while wondering – Oh! – If These Walls Could Talk.

We moved onto a lovely Country House in POUND RIDGE, NY.  This home was built in 1958 and designed by Livingston Elder.  With over 2 acres, a pool, fruit trees and overlooking the Ward Pound Ridge Preserve, making this home a private oasis.  It is currently on the market for $1,395,000.

 

 Last, but not least, we viewed another home in Pound Ridge, The Byron Stratton House – a Historical Pound Ridge Landmark.  This Colonial, with over 6,000 square feet on over 6 acres, was originally buit in Connecticut, then brought over and rebuilt in it’s current position in 1934.  With 6 working fireplaces, a library, conservatory, gymnasium, pool, gazebo and pond – this home is a true gem.  It is currently listed for $3,999,900.
