ARMONK, N.Y. -- More and more, homebuyers are seeking turn-key living in selecting their next house. The residence at 727 Bedford Road in Armonk offers that appeal and more in a stunning five-bedroom stone and shingle home.
Aurora Banaszek of Houlihan Lawrence offers the home for $2,799,000. It includes 4.2 bathrooms, 2 acres and 8,078 square feet of living space in a cul-de-sac of five homes. It was built in 1997.
“If you want turn-key living, this is the home,’’ Banaszek said. High ceilings, custom millwork, light-filled interiors and expansive formal rooms create an air of sophistication and elegance. “At the same time, the homes feel warm and cozy,’’ Banaszek said.
Part of the warm feel emanates from the kitchen, which includes a center island, granite countertops and cherry cabinetry, pizza oven and fabulous gas stove. A luxurious master suite and spacious family bedrooms add to the feel, along with a game room, exercise room and wine cellar.
“It has a lot of character with stonework and shingle,’’ Banaszek said. “The current owners added character as they went along. They lived in the space and they did the work. A completely modern home with an old-world feeling.”
The home’s external beauty adds to its appeal. An inground pool is set aside from the home, which is also surrounded by lavish and varied gardens, a koi pond and thoughtfully-planned landscaping.
“If people love Paris and Europe, you’ll love this home,’’ Banaszek said. “They worked tirelessly on bringing the feel of Europe to Armonk both inside and outside."
The property also abuts Westmoreland Sanctuary and sits back from the road,'' Banaszek said. “It feels like more than two acres."
