Edgemont Colonial for $1.04M, Recycled Glass Surfaces, “After the Storm” Fine Art and Jewelry Trunk Show
House of the Week: Edgemont Colonial
Annual property taxes: $30,037
230 Beverly Rd, Edgemont (Scarsdale P.O.)
Four family bedrooms and an ideal location make this spacious 1964 Colonial ideal for a growing family. “This property is incredibly quiet,” says listing agent Susan Field. “It’s located on one of the ‘alphabet streets,’ yet it’s tucked away and avoids any through traffic. Its charming layout includes a generous entry hall, two fireplaces, a large family room, and a convenient laundry room adjacent to the eat-in-kitchen.” Other noteworthy features: oak hardwood floors throughout, crown moldings, new Andersen windows, and a newly painted exterior. The grounds, accented by a flagstone patio and rear lawn with a playground set, add equal charm. Even a large rock behind the dining room bay window is picturesque in the context of the perennial gardens.

Looking for a calm respite after the stress of the storm? Consider taking in a little artful R&R at the “After the Storm” Fine Art and Jewelry Trunk Show hosted by Westchester-based Romanoff Elements at Table D’Hote (4 MacDonald Ave, Armonk) on Wednesday, November 7, from 6 pm to 8 pm. Not only can you admire a selection of unconventional mixed media paintings and photography by award-winning artist Andrea Bonfils and inspired jewelry by Tulah Jems, but, while mixing and mingling over wine and cheese, you might find some impossible-to-resist gems to take home for keeps. Your home will thank you. So will Her Haven (an organization that gifts professionally designed space for women in need) that will benefit from a portion of the evening’s sales.
