This 3-bedroom, 3.5-bath stone Craftsman-style house is nestled on a secluded hillside along the West 245th Street cul-de-sac between Fieldston Road and Livingston Avenue. It was built in 1926-28 and designed by master architect Julius Gregory.
In addition to 3 principal bedrooms upstairs, there are 2 lower-level guest bedrooms with a full bathroom and their own eat-in kitchen.
Features include: upper and lower entry halls; living room with fireplace flanked by built-in bookcases and French doors to a south-facing sunroom; formal dining room; eat-in kitchen with glass doors to an 8-by-21-ft. east-facing sunroom; master bedroom suite with fireplace and 2 walk-in closets; pull-down stairs to a storage attic; unfinished basement; new furnace.
There are front and back patios, a private multi-car driveway and an attached garage (currently used as a recreation room). The house sits on an approximately 0.22 acre lot in a landmark district.
Conveniently located for well-known private schools (Horace Mann, Fieldston and Riverdale Country School), the vast greenery of Van Cortlandt Park and transportation to Manhattan (including express buses and the No. 1 subway train).
