MOVE RIGHT IN TO THIS PERFECT CITY HOME! Nestled at the end of a cul-de-sac in the private community of Fieldston, this remarkable home stands out for its quality, character, and privacy. On a half-acre double lot, with no neighbors on either side, it's a light flooded gem. The hillside location creates additional separation from your neighbors and offers a great view of Van Cortlandt Park. The home has been lovingly and meticulously renovated, including the expansive windowed kitchen (which offers double sinks, double dishwashers and even two ovens—one gas and one electric) and its five and half bathrooms. The renovations are not just for appearance; plumbing, electrical and HVAC have all been substantially upgraded. Entering through the gracious foyer, you are immediately drawn to the light streaming in through the expansive east facing windows and glass doors. On your right is a fabulous living room with a wood-burning fireplace and French doors out to the bluestone patio. To your left is a wonderful, paneled library (potential first floor bedroom) with built-in bookshelves and a second fireplace. Also on the first floor is a powder room and the magnificent kitchen/great room, which encompasses the spacious dining room with its inviting window bench. The second floor offers a large primary suite with working fireplace, an office area and lovely bath, and Juliet balcony. On this level there are three additional roomy bedrooms, two more baths and abundant closet space. The full third floor serves as a recreational space with a den (possible bedroom) for television viewing, a wet bar, ping pong and more--most especially a glorious terrace overlooking Van Cortlandt Park. This level also offers an additional two full baths, and even more spacious storage. Outside, there are plenty of spaces to relax or entertain. The large back bluestone patio and a smaller bluestone terrace next to the kitchen are both perfect for entertaining and barbecuing. A walkway leads to the lower property with a seating area, and, of course, there is the sun-drenched third-floor terrace. On the lower level, there's a wine cellar and copious storage, plus an attached spacious garage. Speaking of entertaining, you won’t skip a beat if there is a power outage. The permanently installed 20,000 watt generator will keep your whole house ready and welcoming, switching on automatically if there is an interruption in electrical service. Few homes in the city offer this rare combination of space and privacy as well as easy access to the subway, Metro North, express busses, and local transportation, as well as shopping, Van Cortlandt Park horse riding stables & golf course, and great local restaurants. Area schools include the three hilltop private schools and two four-year colleges. This home is unsurpassed—call today!
