The Details: “Stately” really is the only word. With pristine white columns and immaculate stonework along the partial wrap-around porch, 9 Marshall harkens back to the home’s original 1916 architecture, continued inside by a huge double-door vestibule and hardwood floors, moldings, and accents. Two gas fireplaces and a pellet stove lend to the cozy elegance, while the crystal chandelier and bench windows of the formal dining room are perfectly suited for an evening of upscale entertaining. A handy butler’s pantry supports the gleaming white tile and black granite chef’s kitchen, complete with an oversized double-basin sink, dining-ready island, and adjacent breakfast nook.
Eight bedrooms and three full baths (plus a half) are spaced out over the second and third floors, including spa-like modern baths and a master suite with a fireplace and a raised soaking tub that’s perfect after a long day. Two separate living/office spaces make for excellent work-from-home backgrounds, and the second-floor laundry setup means you’ll never have to head down to the basement on a cold winter’s day.
Selling Points: Lawns, garages, and patios come at a premium in Yonkers, but this property manages all three.
