The Eating And Exercise Disorder Recovery Facility Inside A Westchester Mansion

Monte Nido uses an Irvington mansion for a good cause.

The prospective purchasers had seen countless properties throughout the area. But when they drove through the stone-pillared entrance of this almost-11-acre estate, graced with century-old trees, they knew this was it. Listed at $6.8 million, the restored 1938 Bedford stone mansion in Irvington features marble fireplaces, a pool, and a horse barn. But if you’d like to welcome the new residents, maybe hold off on the homemade cake and consider some fresh flowers instead—the property is now home to the only residential eating-disorder treatment center in the state, Monte Nido Irvington (100 S Broadway, Irvington; www.montenido.com), operated by the California-based Monte Nido Eating Disorder Treatment Centers.   

The facility, which treats those with anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, and exercise addiction, will house 14 clients, 10 women and four men. Douglas W. Bunnell, PhD, Monte Nido’s national clinical development officer, estimates that because about a third of the clients in its West Coast facilities had been from the East, the new location will benefit these clients and their families, whose involvement is an important part of treatment. “We won’t have to rely so much on Skype,” he says. Monte Nido hopes to welcome its first residents this month.
