A hidden gem not far from home because it is home


This three-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom stone Craftsman-style house is nestled on a secluded hillside along the West 245th Street cul-de-sac between Fieldston Road and Livingston Avenue.

Designed by master architect Julius Gregory, and built in the late 1920s, this home at 4501 Livingston Ave., includes upper and lower entry halls, a living room with a fireplace flanked by built-in bookcases along with French doors to a south-facing sunroom. There’s also a formal dining room, eat-in kitchen with glass doors, and an 8-by-21-foot east-facing sunroom.

The master bedroom suite comes with a fireplace, two walk-in closets, pull-down stairs to a storage attic. There’s also an unfinished basement and a new furnace.

Along with the three bedrooms upstairs, there are two lower-level guest bedrooms with a full bathroom and their own eat-in kitchen.

The front and back patios make up some of the exterior features on the 0.22-acre lot, along with a private multi-car driveway and an attached garage that is currently used as a recreation room.

It might be a classic home, but it’s new to the market right now, and it’s available to you for $1.995 million.
