Back in May, we mentioned that the Property Brothers, one of HGTV’s most popular series, was making moves in Westchester. Well, as the fifth season, filmed from April through August, starts to unwind we decided to take a look at three of the local homes to be featured on the show.
The one-hour reality television show, which features Jonathan and Drew Scott, is aimed at helping couples purchase a house within their target budget range and transform it into an ambitious dream home, after viewing another dream home with features specific to the couple’s wish list.
One of the houses, a four-bedroom 1969 Colonial located in Rye Brook, was purchased for $990,000, and given an overhaul by the Scott duo. With a new, granite-countertop kitchen, dining room, and family room, the Rye Brook clients will be ready to show off their new abode next spring.
The second house, although located in Green Knolls in Eastchester, is within walking distance of Scarsdale, and has a Scarsdale P.O. Featured on the 100th episode of Property Brothers, the recently sold side-hall Colonial was used as the episode’s “example dream home”, exhibiting refinished wood floors, a formal dining room, full kitchen, large living room, den, walkout basement, and master bedroom with en suite bath. The property was sold for $650,000.
The final property was also used as an example dream home: a modern chalet-style property located on Quaker Ridge Road in New Rochelle. Once a cider mill dating back to 1927, the house boasts a rural aesthetic with an upgraded, modern kitchen and a backyard patio. The property’s listing price? $1.09 million.
Now that season has begun and filming has come to an end, the Scott twins are no longer in New York, however it is apparent they enjoyed their extended six-month stay.
