Location: 29 Wood Road, Bedford Hills
Description: Hudson Valley farm meets Bedford estates country in this nearly four-acre spread known as Amba Farms. Perfect for the gentleman farmer who prefers stylish new construction (the Colonial-style house was built in 2008). The sprawling 5,000-square-foot house has five bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms, with a two-car attached garage.
Architectural and design details include a gracious entry with a wide center hall, eat-in kitchen, formal dining room, hardwood floors and wide doorways throughout, French doors and oversized windows that bring in lots of natural light, chair rails, crown moldings, columns, wood-burning fireplaces and built-ins.
For the farmer, there is a series of raised bed vegetable gardens, a large strawberry garden, potting shed, mature fruit orchards, greenhouse, cold frames and a run for chickens.
Asking price: $2,850,000, with $45,366 in estimated annual taxes.
Selling points: Amenities include a heated swimming pool with a terrace and shady pergola surrounded by lush, long-blooming gardens and stone walls, an exercise room, private gated entry and a security system. The property also has a one-bedroom guest cottage with its own driveway and patio. Sounds like the perfect setup for an Airbnb. As an added bonus, Wood Road is one of the prettiest roads in northern Westchester.
Downside: You will find out pretty quickly that farming is a lot of work!
See for yourself: An open house is scheduled for 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, May 20.
