Property Description


This 200+ year old Tudor-style home has been meticulously renovated with all of the comforts of the modern world. The house is replete with antique features like stained glass windows, wrought iron Juliette balconies, double-height ceilings with exposed beams, and an ornate entry door. The property sits on top of a 0.6 acre fenced lot overlooking the expansive garden, yard and POOL. The owners spent approx. $400,000 on the renovation in 2016.

The 2nd floor features double-height, 15’ ceilings with exposed beams, modern wrought iron chandeliers, 200+ year old seasoned wooden floors in immaculate condition, and skylights galore. The grand living room features an original mantle above an electric fireplace. The master bedroom features two large closets and a Juliette balcony. The windowed master bathroom is fully-tiled with beautiful white marble, a rainfall showerhead, and radiant floor heating.

The 1st floor kitchen comes with tons of storage, a full sized stainless steel fridge, dishwasher, stove with vented exhaust, microwave, farmhouse sink, breakfast bar, marble countertops, and copper drying-hooks in front of original stained glass window. The second bedroom next to the kitchen is currently being used as a TV room, but is complete with a built-in closet system. The 2nd bathroom has a large, jacuzzi marble tub and washer/dryer.
The property grounds have a gravel parking lot that could accommodate at least 6 cars, a heated pool, heated outdoor shower, storage shed, and chicken coop.

Ideally located close to shopping, restaurants, parks, transportation, and schools. Commuters dream with easy access to the Maj Deegan Expressway and Hudson Parkway, providing easy access to Manhattan and Westchester. Taxes for both lots are $8,464.12 per year.

Riverdale | Bronx

Quick Profile

Searching for a little bit of country that can be your home base, while still being able to take advantage of everything that NYC offers? Do you want a slower pace of living, focused on family and the great outdoors? Riverdale may be your perfect choice. Only about ten miles north of Midtown, Riverdale’s bucolic paradise feels like you have left the city entirely. You would never guess that you are still within the confines of the Bronx. 

Riverdale is primarily residential with a substantial number of single-family homes and corridors of high-rise apartments. There are many large parks, and they play a major role in the lives of the residents, as they are a primary source of entertainment. Clean, safe streets make Riverdale a great place to walk or cycle. There are trees everywhere, and the air is fresh and invigorating. It is a great place to raise a family, but more and more singles and young professionals are moving into Riverdale, in search of larger, less expensive apartments, and to enjoy the parks and the remarkable views of the Hudson River and Manhattan.  

While the grid layout of the rest of the city makes it easy to find your way from here to there, Riverdale chose to forego that structure, choosing instead to let the verdant streets twist and wind their way around natural obstacles in designs by Frederick Law Olmsted, of Central Park fame. Some streets are divided, with traffic in one direction being at an entirely different level than traffic headed the opposite way on the same street. This quirkiness adds a certain charm to this neighborhood.
