Formerly owned by the founder of Africa-focused AIDS nonprofit (RED), this 7,700-square-foot gated colonial sports six bedrooms, 5.1 baths, and an astounding 2.6 acres of Irvington’s exclusive Matthiessen Park community. Oh, and its next-door neighbors are a film industry power couple.
The hefty price tag isn’t unwarranted. The roomy estate sports its own private pond, pool, tennis court, and views of the Hudson. It’s also just steps from the Croton Aqueduct Trail.
Inside, find lavish sitting and formal dining rooms, plus a chef’s kitchen with double-wide stovetop, wine fridge, and a cavernous 1,500-bottle wine cellar in the basement. Over the building’s three floors, you’ll also find six en suite bedrooms, including a master suite with office and deluxe dressing area, gym, and home theater (in case you want to watch The Mask of Zorro or Ant-Man).
Selling Points: Exclusive location, custom finishes, plenty of privacy, and probably the coolest neighborhood association outside of Martha Stewart’s Bedford compound.
