CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. -- Built a year before the United States gained its independence, a vintage Chappaqua home featuring 18th-century details coupled with modern updates, has hit the market.
275 Bedford Road in Chappaqua, built in 1775, features colonial-style architecture that has been restyled to show the best craftsmanship of the era. Renovated to include modern luxuries, the home features a pool, pool house, sports court and a putting green. "The home blends old-world artistry and extraordinary style with a wealth of modern comforts," said Joanne Georgiou, listing agent for Houlihan Lawrence.
The home's over 12,000 sq. ft. of living space includes seven bedrooms, five bathrooms and an indoor basketball court. While many homes built in the late 1700's feature small, divided rooms, 275 Bedford Road was built using an open floor plan and includes an abundance of space. Offering plenty of room, both inside and out, the home is ideal for those who enjoy hosting family and friends all year long.
275 Bedford has been completely renovated over the years, maintaining a classic charm while featuring more modern upgrades. A recent expansion is the home's kitchen, which features upgraded appliances and overlooks the massive property. "The interior of this home is absolutely gorgeous," said Georgiou. "The previous owners hired an antique designer and an antique architect to restore the home. Everything is old world reflecting the era of its original build.
The home's seven acres also include a 2,620 sq. ft. detached outbuilding with a newly finished, multi-purpose space. The two bedroom, two bath building features a kitchenette and a heating and cooling system, perfect for guest accommodations, a studio or a private office.
Nestled in a peaceful setting in Chappaqua, a short distance from downtown and Metro-North, 275 Bedford Road is private, yet very accessible for commuters. "It features a special kind elegance," said Georgiou. "With all that is offered, this home is a steal."
