Turn-of-the-Century Chappaqua Estate; Last Chance: Bloomie’s Rug Tent Event; Russel Wright House Tour

One of the last turn-of-the-century estates in Westchester, this private 11.5-acre compound includes a 15-room historic majestic manor house with a regal six-column front facade, a former carriage house (now used as an on-site business office), a caretaker’s cottage, and an in-ground pool with a pool house.

Renovated Rye Brook Gem for $2.55M, Bloomie’s Annual Rug Tent Event, Monet-Inspired Home Gardening Demo

This six-bedroom center hall Colonial in the Hillandale section of Rye Brook was built in 1926, reportedly by the founder of the Life Savers Candy Company that, at the time, had a factory in Port Chester. An extensive renovation in 2008 added a large family room; an expanded master bedroom suite with a dressing area, two walk-in closets, upscale bath with two vanities, oversized whirlpool tub, and steam shower; customized closets in every bedroom; wiring for sound inside and out; new heating system; and a new roof.
