Location: 109 Ridge Road, Hartsdale (town of Greenburgh)
Description: This circa 1760 Colonial has been completely renovated and updated, yet it retains its historic charm, with such features as exposed hand-hewn beams, wide-plank floors, and four working fireplaces. The 3,000-square-foot house has four bedrooms, three full bathrooms and one partial bath. It sits on a very private 0.58-acre lot that features wide expanses of lawn, terraces, mature trees and tidy flower beds with perennials and long-blooming shrubs.
The house is just down the road from another historic home in Hartsdale, the 18th-century Odell House, which played a key role in the final American victory in Yorktown, Virginia. The Odell House, also on Ridge Road in Hartsdale, served as the headquarters for French General Jean-Baptiste Donatien de Vimeur, comte de Rochambeau, from July 6 to Aug. 18, 1781. It was announced in July that the town of Greenburgh and the Sons of the American Revolution New York Chapter are teaming up to save the historic Odell House.
The modern kitchen of this Ridge Road home features a Sub-Zero refrigerator, six-burner Wolf range, granite counters and a walk-in pantry. The pantry opens to the dining room and a spacious living room with a new deck that’s ideal for entertaining. The private master suite features a large dressing area, spacious bathroom and a private deck overlooking the garden.
Recent improvements include a three-zone heating and cooling system and cedar shake siding and roof.
Asking price: $749,000, down from $899,000, with estimated annual taxes of $21,410
Selling points: The property has just had a pretty dramatic price reduction and the seller may offer financing. With 2.5 miles of wooded trails in the Hart’s Park Brook and Preserve just across the street, this is a great home for a dog owner looking for a regular, close-at-hand spot for walking in all kinds of weather. A fenced-in back yard adds to the doggie appeal.
Other amenities include a two-car attached garage and walk-out basement.
