BRIARCLIFF MANOR, N.Y. -- An 18th-century Briarcliff listing, formally home to a blacksmith's workshop, includes details that are hard to forge in today's builds.
100 Scarborough Station Road was built in 1748 and renovated over 200 years later. Though the converted carriage house was updated to include more modern features, it still has some aspects of the original build that offer a classic appeal. The focal point of the living room is its original fireplace, which was once a blacksmith's forge, used to make swords, knives, armor and other iron and steel products. There is a reason this home wasn't destroyed to make room for a brand new build. It's a very strong structure with great attention-to-detail.
The home is listed for $1,999,000 by Houlihan Lawrence and includes over 7,000 sq. ft of living space. In addition to the new kitchen with custom cabinetry, the interior also includes a card room, library and wine cellar. There is so much space inside this home, every room has been carefully thought out and well designed. It's an old build, but you can feel the modern touch that has been constructed.
Equally as impressive as the home's interior is the yard, which boasts 1.3 acres along the Hudson River. French doors along the rear of the home open to an outdoor patio, overlooking the wooded property, with the river as a backdrop. For residents of this home, there is no better place to be on a beautiful day than your own backyard.
Just down the street from the Scarborough train station, 100 Scarborough Station Road is a short train ride away from New York City.
