Grand stair hall with massive front door with paned transom and sidelights, living room with ornamental plaster frieze, library and dining room... both leading out to semi-circular sunroom with windows on three sides and brick fireplace with wood-burning stove insert, and original butlers pantry with glass-front cabinets and hammered copper sink.Spacious master bedroom suite with bath (amazing vitreous china tub), rooftop terrace in front and semi-circular covered porch on the side with fantastic treetop views. Five more sun-filled bedrooms (two large on 2nd floor and 3 smaller on 3rd floor) and 2.5 baths.Recently painted stucco exterior with curved clay tile roof and copper gutters. Interior walls just completely restored and painted. Wonderful condition with many improvements although two of the baths are original and kitchen does still need updating.Expansive columned front porch and decked patio are perfect for alfresco entertaining. House is beautifully sited on top of Eagle Rock high above the street with private rear access road. Over 1/3 acre of property with mature landscaping and stately trees providing a feeling a privacy and tranquility. Morning sunlight flows into the back of the house and golden late day light streams in the front. Truly a very special home.Great location with close access to parkways and a brief 25 minutes to midtown Manhattan via Metro North or 10 minutes to NYC subway. In the heart of historic Park Hill (www.ParkHillYonkers.org) and just a short walk from the Park Hill Swim/Racquet/Social Club (www.ParkHillRacquetClub.com).
