HOME OF THE WEEK

Looking for a home away from the crowds

Welcome to 10 Belmont Place, the most captivating home on a quiet cul de sac in the sought-after historic estate area of Yonkers.

A century ago, when the New York City subway was being built, an engineer on that monumental project joined 10 Belmont’s original owner to construct this lovingly maintained solid house. From the moment you enter into the center hall, you’re struck by the size and beauty that envelopes you. The light streaming from the original Palladian window. The glow of the original wood floors. The details of the coffered ceiling. And the gorgeous stairs that lead up to two unique and spacious landings.

There are other original details, too, like, the original kitchen cabinets in the updated 21st century cook’s kitchen. The south- and west-facing kitchen has stainless steel appliances, Carrera marble counters, and an island and breakfast bar.

The butler’s pantry has a full-sized, upright deep freezer — the perfect companion to the kitchen’s full-size refrigerator.

No expense was spared when the two full bathrooms upstairs and the powder room downstairs were redesigned, perfectly in keeping with the style of the home.

Attention to detail is apparent everywhere in the house. Four very large bedrooms can accommodate king-sized suites of furniture, and two of them have French doors to an outside balcony overlooking the garden and carriage house.

There is abundant space in the attic, basement and studio above the carriage house, waiting to be transformed into whatever your heart desires.

Head outside to enjoy lawns, flower beds, sitting areas, a patio for dining, and a lap pool and spa.

It’s just minutes from the Metro-North station, and all the stores in and near Ridge Hill Shopping Plaza.

Find a home away from it all for $980,000.
