Tucked along a private cul-de-sac in Riverdale’s Estate area, you’ll find a spacious four-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom brick-and-stone raised ranch-style house that’s calling out your name.

Built in 1960 at 739 Ladd Road — and later renovated — this fantastic home sits on landscaped grounds that provide an oasis of beauty and quiet. It includes extensive lawns and welcoming patios, ideal for outdoor living and entertaining.

With its long, low lines and outdoor orientation, the house blends into its gentle pastoral setting. The overall feeling is modern, with an easy flow of space inside — and bright open space outside.

The 0.38-acre corner property was created by combining two adjoining lots. Ladd Road is a leafy, private street comprised of a group of modern houses that share an inviting private-association outdoor swimming pool.

Past the entry vestibule on the home’s main floor, visitors will find a marble center hall, elegant living room with picture windows and a door to a western terrace with sunset views. There’s also a glimpse of the great cliff of the Palisades, and even a seasonal Hudson River view.

The terrace includes a built-in pizza oven and a gas line for an outdoor grill. The bright formal dining room leads to a large kitchen outfitted with modern, clean-lined Italian Scavolini cabinetry. There’s also Caesarstone quartz counter tops, Austrian crystal backsplashes, and stainless steel appliances.

The family room boasts a stone gas fireplace, picture windows and a polished marble floor.

In addition to the ease and accessibility of having all its bedrooms on the main floor, the house en joys an impressive, spacious lower level of adaptable open-format space, finished with a second Scavolini kitchen, multiple home office areas, a guest room, full bathroom with a steam shower, den with marble wood-burning fireplace, a wine cellar, and ample storage.

There’s also plenty of space to create two guest rooms.

On the far end of the lower level, glass doors open out to a gracious patio with a retractable awning and a low granite wraparound wall suitable for seating.

Outside, there is a secluded and broad stone entry patio. The grounds are enclosed by long walls to the north and west, lush greenery to the south, and a wooded hill to the east.

What are you waiting for? At $2.775 million, this home is ready for you right now.
