Enchanting Chateau Minutes to Manhattan On the highest point in NYC sits a castle, complete with turret and courtyard, terraced gardens, and tall trees spread over 0.47 acres. Set in the lush beauty of natural landscapes, forests, the remarkable rock formations that define Fieldston, it is one of 253 homes built in the 1920’s and 30’s by leading architects creating this idyllic historic community. This home, built in 1926 with 30” thick stone cut from ruined parts of a European castle, offers, upon entering, a dramatic sunken living room with striking casement windows, beamed ceiling and an imposing stone fireplace that hides an adjoining private library. Designed by the famed architect Frank Forster, it has original woodwork, Pasadena tiles, and his signature windows and copper-framed screens. No expense was spared on this kitchen renovation that features a commercial Jade 8-burner 2-oven stove with a vented grill (for steaks and chops), Sub-Zero refrigerator, two dishwashers, two sinks, marble countertops, with more than generous cabinet and pantry space. Oak Gothic double doors open to reveal a formal dining room next to the kitchen. From there parties can access the 40'x30' flagstone courtyard for gracious all year entertaining and enjoyment. On the two floors above are 5 bedrooms and 4 baths. Separated in the south wing above the living room is the primary bedroom with soaring ceilings, wood beams, ensuite bath, and sunken dressing area. Off the main hallway are 3 more bedrooms, one with a charming circle turret room. One flight up to a delightfully high peaked ceiling bedroom and bath. Renovations include a 9-zone Mitsubishi ductless air conditioning system, 5-room plus patio Bose sound system, 4 flat-screen TVs, new recessed low-voltage lighting, and a basement carpentry and laundry room. Perennial gardens were copiously added to in the courtyard; terraced perennial gardens created to the east and south, in the wooded areas to the north, and on the boulders in front of the house. There is a 2-car garage, with fanciful 9 1/2' oak Gothic double castle doors.
