An elegant mansion overlooking idyllic pond in historic district

Splendidly situated on a cul-de-sac and overlooking a tranquil private pond, this elegant eight-bedroom home with eight full bathrooms (and two half-bathrooms) is the perfect home that only architect Julius Gregory could build.

Built in the late 1920s, this home at 4660 Livingston Ave., was gorgeously restored from top to bottom in 1998, giving it every modern feature you and your family need.

Standout features include a welcoming center hall, curved floating staircase rising three stories to a windowed rotunda.

A living room with a marble wood-burning fireplace. A large formal dining room with French doors to a side patio.

There’s also a spacious kitchen outfitted with polished granite counter tops, peninsula breakfast bar, sub-zero refrigerator, and a breakfast room with glass doors.

The expansive family room has custom built-ins, a wood-burning fireplace, four banks of window seats, and French doors leading to a tiled sun terrace.

There are at least eight bedrooms arrayed throughout the upper two floors, including a master bedroom suite with two walk-in closets, plus a stylish limestone master bathroom with a whirlpool tub, glass shower and skylights.

On the lowest level, there is a finished walk-out basement with wood floors, a fitness and recreation room, along with a powder room, second kitchen, storage rooms, laundry room, and a maid’s room with a bull bathroom.

Outside, the spacious landscaped grounds are graced with bi-level wraparound patios and a cascading stone waterfall.

The property has a rolling back lawn, and its front lawn faces the Fieldston community’s hidden Indian Pond in its own little park.

There is elevator access to all floors, as well as a five-zone HVAC system, all under a natural slate roof.

The multi-car parking court leads to an attached two-car garage — all sitting on about 0.82 acres inside Fieldston’s Landmark District.

We hear you: Say no more. You’ve found your new home, and it’s available to you right now for $4.59 million.
