A gem so secluded, you forget you’re in the city


Nestled on nearly a quarter-acre of a quiet, private cul-de-sac, this five-bedroom, four-bathroom neo-Federal-style house was built in 1937 — the creation of master architect Julius Gregory, who was part of the team that helped design the United Nations complex.

It enjoys both grassy front and back lawns, two inviting patios — including an adorable hidden one — and a fenced, gravel side yard with flagstones and a barbecue.

There is a splendid view of the Hudson River from the second floor.

Standout features include a classic entry portico with elegant leaded-glass sidelights, and a fanlight that frames the doorway.

There’s also a center stair hall, a living room with a wood-burning fireplace and custom built-ins. And a formal dining room.

You’ll also find a windowed kitchen with breakfast nook and a door out to the yard.

The main floor has a guest bedroom or office with its own full bathroom. There is a master bedroom with a picture-window view of the Hudson River and the Palisades. A finished two-room basement includes a family room or guest room, full bathroom, and a laundry/storage room.

Within walking distance of Wave Hill, SAR Academy, the Metro-North and express buses to Manhattan, this home is waiting for you for $2.65 million.
