A Scarsdale colonial so beautiful even Jay Gatsby would approve.

With soaring columns, spiral staircase, massive closets, and an in-ground pool, all this property is missing is a green light in the distance and its own Daisy Buchanan.

Location: 76 Cushman Rd, Scarsdale

List Price: $3,895,000 | Est. Annual Taxes: $65,913

Description: Originally built in 1925 by W. Stanwood Phillips in Scarsdale’s much-coveted Murray Hill district, this home is an exemplar of the era’s Neoclassical design influences in Westchester’s favored colonial architecture. The design squeezes 5 bedrooms and 5.1 baths (including a master and two suites) into just over 6,000 square feet.

The marble foyer leads up to the living quarters or into the spacious sitting, dining, and family rooms of the ground floor, including a large Christopher Peacock chef’s kitchen. The lower level features tons of storage and a full bath to serve the game room, family room, and patio, which leads to a rounded pool and tennis court on 1.37 acres.

Selling Points: Master suite with couple’s walk-in closets, marble fireplace and bath with dual sinks and Jacuzzi; office/fitness room; massive extra bedroom with 158 sq. ft. cedar closet for all your pressed shirts.
