This spacious five-bedroom, 3.5-bath, stucco and brick, medieval revival-style house at 5025 Waldo Ave is set on a quarter acre at the end of a quiet, leafy cul-de-sac. The 1929 house enjoys a welcoming front dining terrace, a rear patio and grassy front and side yards.
In addition to its four bedrooms upstairs (one of which has enough space to be divided to create a sixth), the house has a large guest bedroom on the main floor with its own fireplace and full bathroom.
The house has decorative archways and is graced by plenty of original woodwork and detail.
Standout features include: a gracious center hall; large living room (30 feet by 15 feet with a wood-burning fireplace and a French door to the back patio); handsome formal dining room graced with wainscoting and leaded diamond-paned windows; eat-in kitchen; walk-through butler’s pantry; huge master bedroom (24 feet by 19 feet with a dramatic 18.5-foot-high trussed-beam ceiling, oversized northern windows and a Juliet balcony); unfinished walk-out basement with a half bathroom; pull-down steps to a storage attic; central air-conditioning; natural slate roof; multicar private driveway; attached 1-car garage and a 0.26-acre lot in landmark district.
It is conveniently located near well-known private schools (Horace Mann, Fieldston and Riverdale Country School), the Fieldston community’s idyllic Indian Pond, the vast greenery of Van Cortlandt Park, and transportation to Manhattan.
All of this is available for $2.45 million.
