One of Westchester’s last grand estates, King’s Way is a majestic neoclassical home built in 1904. From its impressive columned façade to its beautifully scaled and richly ornamental interiors, the home exhibits the unrivaled quality and immense character of its period roots. Richly hued woodwork, refined moldings and plasterwork, deep tray ceilings and stately fireplaces grace all the main rooms and reflect the classic European design that is incorporated throughout the home.

Among the many noteworthy spaces are a palatial entrance hall with ornate moldings, grand living and dining rooms, and a richly finished mahogany library.

This magnificent property overlooks sparkling Tertia Lake, offering a tranquil and totally private setting with a lakeside pool, breathtaking grounds and outbuildings that include a carriage house, pool house and barn.

The grounds are introduced by classical pillars and a winding drive that weaves gracefully through the beautifully tended landscape. In the spring, the grounds come alive with a tapestry of color and texture from flowering cherry trees, banks of rhododendrons, azaleas and Japanese split-leaf maples that create a magical display.

Located in one of Westchester’s most sought-after communities, just minutes from the center of Chappaqua and the Metro-North rail station, King’s Way is a 45-minute commute to Manhattan.
