Perfectly set on the grounds of Westchester Country Club overlooking the south golf course and the iconic WCC Clubhouse in Rye, New York, this 1929 Cotswold Tudor Revival is a residence for the connoisseur of fine living.
Architect Ralph Mackin, known for creating residences rich in historical references with well-proportioned living spaces, has redesigned and expanded this English Manor to magnificent results. It has been completely updated with fine woodworking, detailed moldings, imported custom carvings, plaster finishes, and classic quarter-sawn oak floors.
The elegant home features a living room with beam ceiling, leaded glass windows, and large limestone fireplace opening to a sun-filled garden room and slate terrace. A bespoke kitchen with every top appliance has a large cherry-topped island. For entertaining, a spacious and inviting dining room with custom tracery ceiling and a tall bank of leaded glass windows overlooks the golf course; and a card room with full bar and a bank of tall leaded glass opens to the terrace.
A well-executed west-wing addition features a first-floor paneled family room with fireplace and set of Palladian style windows overlooking the golf course, and two privately-set guest suites on the second. The master suite features dual luxury baths and two custom-fitted dressing rooms. The lower level features a large brick, barrel ceiling wine cellar perfect for intimate dinners; a billiards room with fireplace; and golf simulator room.
Outside, a heated pool with two pavilions, one a kitchen, the second a cabana/bath, are joined by a covered pergola. Level lawns are surrounded in privacy with specimen landscaping, creating the ultimate setting for outdoor entertaining. This stunning residence on over two acres is listed for $7.995 million with Houlihan Lawrence, an affiliate of Luxury Portfolio International®.
