Sophisticated and unique Italianate Villa in bucolic Briarcliff Manor. Experience the sophistication of classical architecture while simultaneously enjoying a layout and amenities created for modern living for both grand entertaining or private intimacy. The details are impressive, everything has been considered thoughtfully from the millwork to the hinges, to the many different conveniences incorporated for ease and comfort. The heart of every home is the kitchen and at 53 Central Drive you will find a chef's dream completely outfitted for large and small-scale cooking including granite countertops, top-tier appliances, triple-glazed custom cabinets, hand-hammered copper range hood and matching double farm sink are just a few of the things that make this kitchen so special. Luxuriate on any of the three levels of this "Palazzo" with graciously sized rooms totaling just under 5,000 square feet. Upstairs are 4 bedrooms, one currently outfitted as a home office and guest room; the scale of each is quite impressive and all overlook the front entry double height foyer. Once you enter the primary suite you won't want to leave since it offers ultimate privacy and comfort, especially the Aman-like spa bathroom to rejuvenate in after those sometimes stressful days. The lower level is fully built-out and is expansive enough to house a full wet-bar, gaming area, large "screening" TV and exercise equipment, not to mention a dedicated laundry room and tons of storage/ closets all leading outside to the patio and 10-person hot tub perfect for entertainment and enjoyment. This home is reminiscent of the Mediterranean evoking an overall European-chic aesthetic and sensibility. 53 Central Drive, perched upon a hilltop, transports us to the timelessness and beauty of Italian revivals that were made for comfort and true living. Approx. 45 mins to NYC. Private 3 Car Garage with double entry to lower level plus additional carport cover for additional vehicles. Minimal virtual staging has been applied in some photos.
