By 1922 Lewis Bowman was considered to be the country's leader in British architecture....this is clearly evident in this captivating home he designed and built for himself in Bronxville. Unsurpassed in its location and its setting, this spectacular estate stands as the architect's crowning achievement. Nestled behind a handsome stone wall and mature rhododendrons, a circular drive leads to the stunning entranceway. Inside, the two story reception introduces principal rooms of masterful authenticity enhanced with vibrant, beautiful decorating. The striking step-down living room is adorned with a beamed ceiling, a period stone and hand carved fireplace, oak paneled walls and broad light-filled windows. Beyond is an inviting sunroom with three walls of arched leaded windows and doors creating the perfect flow for indoor/outdoor entertaining. Arched doorways lead to an exquisite formal dining room with a magnificent 18th century Palladian style carved mantel, an eclectic and modern library with another handsome marble fireplace, an enchanting breakfast room with a hand painted beamed ceiling, a butler's pantry and a beautifully equipped eat-in kitchen with adjoining family room. A side entrance mudroom, cloak closet and powder room along with a convenient hall wet bar add to first floor conveniences. A grand balconied stairway leads to six family bedrooms and five baths including a serene master suite with vaulted ceiling, a delightful sitting room, fireplace, dressing room and ensuite bath plus.... extra rooms for home offices and/or playroom. Each of the main bedrooms has lovely views overlooking the breathtaking property. The secluded jewel of the third floor bedroom and bath is joined by a media room with considerable space for storage and cedar closets. The lower level with a playroom, gym and wine cellar features a garden entrance to a kitchenette opening to a private terrace and pool area. The extraordinary 1.3 acre landscape is a paradise of beautifully designed outdoor space providing peace and privacy: a magical oasis of inviting terraces, hidden steps and paths, an expansive emerald lawn, a spectacular pool with charming pool house, specimen plantings, tranquil fountains and glorious gardens. This magnificent residence, cherished by two generations of the same family, balances an exceptional setting for entertaining with all the comforts of wonderful family living... there is nothing like it in Bronxville, 15 Miles from Manhattan but world's away.
