House of the Week: Just Reduced! Annual Westchester County Home Show, Architectural Digest Home Design Show

1. House of the Week


Annual property taxes: $23,155

125 Sutton Manor Rd, New Rochelle

This six-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath center hall Colonial offers Old World charm paired with an old-fashioned, close-knit neighborhood. It was built in 1912, and signs of a past era are still prominent, including wood detailing throughout, wood-beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, built-ins, four fireplaces, three front porches, and a detached garage perfect for converting into an office or studio. Just steps away from the Sutton Manor Association boathouse, moorings, and beach, the property also features water views. “The property includes membership to the Sutton Manor Association,” says listing agent Denise Capuano. “In addition to being able to moor small and large boats steps away from your home, benefits of membership in the Association include the camaraderie that the boat house, community room, and small beach bring. It still amazes people. There are boathouse opening and closing parties, progressive dinner parties, viewing the New Rochelle Fourth of July fireworks right from the dock, and so much more. Many residents only learn about these details after moving into Sutton Manor, but someone who appreciates this kind of real neighborhood and community would factor this in before making a decision to purchase a home here."
