Description

Dramatic colonial on corner lot, once the home of architect Dwight J. Baum, situated on a beautifully landscaped 1/2 acre in desirable Fieldston residential area. An attractively appointed well-maintained house featuring an entrance reception hall, well proportioned step-down living room with wood burning fireplace, an elegant formal dining room, a paneled relaxing den/library, a pleasantly warm family room and a beautifully styled modern kitchen. There are 4-5 bedrooms (gracious master suite with sitting room), 4 full baths, 2 half baths, gas heat and a two car detached garage. Basement rec room leads out to a handsome private backyard patio. Only 25 minutes away from Manhattan. Stunning Colonial Revival home on large corner lot, designed by renowned architect Dwight J. Baum for his own family. Gold medal winner of House and Garden Magazine's "Best new design for single family home, 1929-30". Situated on a beautifully landscaped 1/2 acre in the desirable Fieldston community, with front, side and back patios perfect for entertaining. This home served as a backdrop for dozens of Hollywood movies. In the days of radio, local children were invited each week for a read-through of the Lone Ranger program, written by the owner at the time. Unique features of this attractively appointed, well-maintained home include an entrance reception hall with repurposed chandeliers from a 14th century Spanish castle, well-proportioned step-down living room with large wood-burning fireplace, an elegant formal dining room, a paneled, tranquil library, a newly designed family/entertainment room and an exquisitely renovated spacious kitchen. There are 4-6 bedrooms (gracious master suite with sitting room), 4 full baths, 2 half baths, exercise room, wine cellar, gas heat and a two car detached garage. Billiards room leads out to a handsome, private backyard patio. Only 25 minutes away from midtown Manhattan.
