This home feels like it's a million miles away

Terhi Edwards and Mary Phelan-Kavanagh of Douglas Elliman Real Estate


Here’s a home that might be in New York City, but transports you to a way of living that feels like it’s nothing more than a distant thought.

This spacious solid-brick raised ranch is close to the Riverdale Metro-North station, providing a fast 25-minute commute to Grand Central Station.

This large home has four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, and is ready for you to move in right now at 739 Ladd Road. And it’s designed to entertain.

The double lot offers an expansive lush lawn surrounded by mature trees and landscaped with shrubs for privacy, along with some flower beds.

Upon entering, the main hallway leads to an elegant living room, opening up to an outdoor terrace large enough for al fresco dining and magnificent sunsets, a peek of the Palisades, and seasonal Hudson River views.

The formal dining room leads to a large modern custom-designed kitchen imported from Italy, which is any cook’s dream. It features two Bosch dishwashers, a six-range gas/electric Wolf stove, quartz counter tops, and an Austrian crystal tile backsplash.

Conveniently located off the kitchen is the laundry room with plenty of cabinets and access to the driveway and garage. A family room with a gas fireplace, four bedrooms, three full bathrooms and a powder room completes this level.

The lower level has a large open floor plan with a separate access, making it an ideal space for a home office and in-law suite. It features a custom-designed summer kitchen, den with wood-burning fireplace, large bathroom with steam shower, a wine cellar, mechanical room, and ample storage space.

The double French doors open up to a large artisan-made patio perfect to entertain family and friends.

Built in 1960, this home has been updated and upgraded extensively over the past 15 years. The ceramic tile roof has insulation, new gutters, leaders, and copper flashing around the chimneys.

Additional upgrades include a three-zone HVAC system, three new electric panels, alarm system, seven-zone sprinkler system, and a new furnace.

If that wasn’t enough, the home’s exterior was just recently painted, so that’s one less thing you’ll have to plan for, at least anytime in the near future.

And it’s waiting for you right now for $2.975 million.
