Newly restored, light filled, elegant Georgian Revival home designed by noted architect Dwight James Baum. This one of a kind home, offered for the first time in 50 years, is located in Fieldston, a private, New York City land marked enclave of beautiful homes built in the 1930's. This house was built in 1936. The house is majestically elevated and set back from Fieldston Road behind a waist high brick wall providing privacy for the expansive, landscaped front yard with mature plantings and trees. Inside the home you will find 14 perfectly proportioned rooms (plus utility rooms) beginning with the double height entry foyer with dramatic circular stairway leading to the second floor.The first floor presents an incredible living room with floor to ceiling windows on either end and a wood burning fire place. Adjacent to the living room is a light filled sun room also with floor to ceiling windows and a patio. There is a wood paneled library, breakfast room, powder room, kitchen with butlers pantry, mud room and dining room with a wood burning fireplace. The six bedrooms, two with fireplaces, and four full bathrooms are located on the second floor. There is also a second staircase leading to the kitchen. The full basement is comprised of an oversized windowed playroom, bathroom, laundry room, two storage rooms, boiler room, with a new boiler and water heater, and a 25' x 25' garage large enough for two cars. The large private back yard consists of a level grassy yard, a tiered rock garden and a slate patio off of the breakfast room, the perfect spot to enjoy a summer evening barbeque. Move right into this perfect home located near New York's top private schools: The Horace Mann School, The Fieldston School, Riverdale Country School and the SAR Academy.
