NEW CASTLE, N.Y. -- A New Castle home that is the highest priced in Westchester County came on the market Thursday, Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty announced. The property is listed for $29.5 million.
Once owned by famed Broadway producer Billy Rose, the property is being completely restored and expanded by renowned Westchester County builder Twin Oaks Construction. Dawn Knief and Mary Katchis of the company's Scarsdale brokerage have the listing, which is at 773 Armonk Road, New Castle. Muffin Dowdle from Ginnel Real Estate is the co-listing agent on the property.
Originally built in 1904 and set on 98 acres, a rarity in Westchester County, the brick-and-limestone residence is being reconstructed, but is offered now prior to completion so a buyer can have the opportunity to customize the building plans to suit their own tastes.
David Fenton, founder and CEO of Twin Oaks Construction, said he and partner Steve Oder will expand the home’s original 8,400 square feet to about 21,000.
“Upon completion this rare and magnificent estate will be an incomparable residence of luxury, comfort and stature,” said Fenton.
Noting that the property is on a ridge surrounded by pastoral vistas, he added, “with breathtaking and unparalleled views of the Hudson Valley, this spectacular home will also feature the ultimate in the most sought-after amenities.”
Introduced by a long, winding drive, the completed home will have nine bedrooms, eight full and four half baths, and a ballroom, with interior living spaces highlighted by artisanal craftsmanship, high ceilings and fine millwork.
Outside, the property will include a motor court and fountain, 11,000 square feet of patios and terraces, infinity pool with waterfall and spa, fully equipped outdoor kitchen, two tennis courts, basketball court, stone gazebo with Hudson Valley views and formal English gardens with a maze.
“This one of a kind architectural masterpiece is equally perfect for quiet living and entertaining guests on a grand scale,” said Knief. “A buying opportunity like this, less than one hour from Manhattan, really only comes along once in a lifetime.”
