With soaring columns and a 65-foot front porch, this recently renovated 1913 masterpiece just screams vintage Americana.

Sitting on 1.4 acres of prime Rye lawn, this 6-bed/6.2-bath neighborhood landmark celebrates Westchester’s historic roots with a $300,000 price drop.

Location: 60 Forest Ave, Rye

Asking Price: $4,995,000; Est. annual taxes: $92,965

At just a hair over 8,000 square feet split between three levels, this Rye colonial proclaims its 1913 origins at every turn, from the massive front porch and adjoining sunroom to its gleaming white columns, balcony, and six stone fireplaces. A full renovation in 2006 and added rear entry in 2012, however, bring all the safety, efficiency, and convenience of a modern, millennium-era home.

The ground floor sports a vintage library, both living and family rooms, spacious kitchen with butler’s pantry, mud room, and a home office, while the lower top includes a bedroom, full bath, rec room, and an extra bedroom or fitness room. In the basement, find another rec room, laundry facilities, and plenty of storage, including a large cedar space for off-season clothes.

In between, on the main living level, families will find a second laundry room and three bedrooms (two en suite and one with shared bath access), plus an enormous master suite comprising bed, two baths, sitting room, walk-in closet, and two separate dressing rooms totaling over 300 square feet for even the most prodigious wardrobes.

Selling Points: Specimen landscaping, 2.5-car heated garage, double laundry, incredible master suite
