You’ve finally found the breathtakingly beautiful home you’ve been looking for, and it’s not far at all — it’s in the exclusive Fieldston section of Riverdale.

This 1920s stone and stucco Tudor home at 4660 Livingston Ave., was designed by renowned Swiss architect Othmar Ammann, famous for designing the George Washington and Verrazano Narrows bridges.

It was immaculately restored and rebuilt in the late 1990s while maintaining its original grandeur featuring nine bedrooms and seven full and two half bathrooms.

In fact, it’s 16 rooms in all on four floors, and is next to Indian Pond.

It features a grand entrance, a stunning spiral staircase, four fireplaces, a large chef’s eat-in kitchen, formal dining room, library and family room, multiple terraces, central air-conditioning, an elevator, and thoughtful details galore in more than 9,000 square feet.

All the main floor rooms open to terraces on the serene, bucolic grounds.

This is a home you have to see to believe. And once you believe, you’ll know it’s worth every penny of its $4.9 million listing price.
