Van Cortlandt Crest home is an all-around classic


This Federal-style brick home at 19 Fanshaw Ave. is a stunning 1920’s timeless gem that espouses classic charm from every angle.

Located in the Van Cortlandt Crest section of Yonkers, this home boasts seven bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms. When you step inside, there is a breathtaking entry foyer that sets the tone for the entire residence. The curved wooden archway welcomes you with open arms, and an inviting grand staircase beckons you to explore further.

Throughout the house, you’ll discover a wealth of period details, including intricate moldings, gleaming hardwood floors, high ceilings and oversized windows that flood the interior with natural light.

The spacious living areas and two sun porches provide plenty of room for both formal entertaining and cozy family gatherings.

As you venture upstairs, you will see a large landing with four generously sized bedrooms and two full bathrooms, including an extraordinarily large primary suite with two huge walk-in closets. The third floor offers three more bedrooms, an office/kitchenette space, and a full bath.

One of the standout features of this property is the large, level, and flat backyard.

This home offers the best of both worlds: a peaceful suburban retreat with convenient access to New York City via public transportation, highways, shopping, and houses of worship.

The asking price is $1.25 million.
