Built in 1913 by the same architect that designed the Frick mansion, Westways is a magical oasis 25 miles east of NYC. Nestled into 1.6 sloping acres overlooking the Sound and surrounded by old growth trees and luscious landscaping, the estate invites you into a state of tranquility and private luxury. An expansive flagstone patio and grand staircase lead to a sparkling gunite saltwater pool with a cabana, outdoor kitchen, and bluestone surround. For nature lovers, the singing birds, and soft breeze from the Sound whispering in the majestic pines will delight and inspire one hour from the city, yet a world apart.
No expense was spared in the steel, cement, stone and terra-cotta block construction of Westways. Throughout its history, this estate has been meticulously maintained and thoughtfully updated. This is a unique opportunity to move right into the elegance and glamour of the Gold Coast, with all the comforts of today.
The magnificent entry welcomes with original oak paneling, a grand double height staircase, a fireplace and polished hardwood floors throughout the home. Oriented to the magnificent sunsets in the west, the homes floorplan is designed to capture light and breeze from each beautifully scaled room. The chefs kitchen will make any serious home cook happy with Sub-zero appliances, a Lacanche range, multiple copper sinks, custom-crafted cabinetry, a walk-in pantry, butlers station, baking station, Pietra Cardosa-honed counter tops and radiant-heat Italian-tile floor.
Ascend the staircase to discover a true master suite. A sanctuary, replete with a private sitting/dressing room, a spacious home office, working fireplace and a spa-like master bath. Carrera marble, double vanity, a soaking tub, rainfall shower and radiant heat floors.
This is a home that keeps giving. Seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a guest apartment, an attached garage currently being used as a yoga studio with radiant-heat cement flooring, three working fireplaces and natural gas and hot water heating.
