These Bronxville Beauties Offer Historic Living With a Contemporary Feel
Two 1920s Bronxville homes offer vastly different interior looks at the same price.
29 Northway, Bronxville
5 BR, 4.1 BA; 5,968 sq. ft.; .89 acres; $53,519 estimated taxes
Thanks to a 2017 renovation and expansion, the historic Bronxville home on Northway offers every design and functional amenity at the top of today’s buyers’ checklists: open-concept floor plan; swanky kitchen with high-end appliances and a huge center island; rooms with dramatic millwork, including crown moldings, chair rail, and coffered ceilings; mudroom with custom built-ins; and a lower level with media room, home office, gym, and playroom.
The gracious and expansive five-bedroom home sits on a large lot, abutting Siwanoy Country Club, and only the exterior gives a hint of its 1920s pedigree. Less than a mile away sits another recently renovated historic Bronxville gem, built in 1926.
11 The High Road, Bronxville
5 BR, 5.1 BA; 5,141 sq. ft.; .32 acres; $82,913 estimated taxes
Surrounded by stone walls and set back from the road for maximum privacy, the English-style home gives off a warm, cozy ambience. Significant architectural details include original hand-rubbed paneling, herringbone-pattern inlaid hardwood floors, recessed cabinetry, custom millwork, and lead-glass windows.
Several rooms in the spacious home stand out: a paneled living room with fireplace, an elegant dining room complete with butler’s pantry, a mudroom with a glass ceiling, and a gabled third-floor bedroom, which really kicks up the charm. The home delivers outside, as well, boasting a terraced entertaining area and children’s playset. Any buyer would be lucky to call either of these listings home.
