The traditional teams with the modern in this Colonial-style home, designed by Bronxville architect Dean Davis and built last year by Westchester developers Steve Dallal and Teresa Marziano.
The 6,183-square-foot house is situated on manicured, mature property in the cul-de-sac of Crown Circle that was once part of the Joseph P. Kennedy estate, Crownlands. Two stone pillars to the left of the circle’s entrance still bear the name of the original estate. But while nodding to the past, the house also makes use of the latest in green technology, including Energy Star windows; nontoxic cellulose fiber in the walls for tighter insulation and better acoustics; three water-heaters at key access points; two ultra-high efficiency modulating gas furnaces; and four-zone heating and air conditioning with programmable thermostats. These amenities will result in an approximately 25 percent savings for the home buyer, according to Dallal and Marziano’s research.
Accented by a cathedral ceiling, marble countertops and such subtle design elements as a curving staircase and windows with views as far as the Empire State Building, the house also features six bedrooms; six and a half baths, including a master bath; an eat-in kitchen; a pantry; a walk-in closet; a patio; and sprinkler and security systems.
But just as it blends the old and the new, this Crown Circle property – which lists for $4,750,000 – also marries privacy with immediacy. The house is within walking distance of the picaresque village, with its tony shops; two colleges that offer ample public programming – Concordia and Sarah Lawrence; the well-regarded Bronxville school district; and a 25-minute Metro-North ride into New York City.
