North Salem chateau / country house description

Charming and secluded 'Cotswold-Style' stone cottage. Wood paneled living room with French doors leading to the patio. 18th century wide paneled floors with three brick and stone working fireplaces. English-styled open kitchen with a walk-in pantry and a Sub Zero refrigerator and freezer. The charming dinning area features a large mahogany dining table with a love seat and bow-front window with a view. Three bedrooms, with ample closets, each with en-suite bathrooms. The master bedroom, with a wood paneled fireplace, has a king sized bed, one has a queen bed and the other has a twin bed with a trundle. Beautiful gardens. Outdoor dining and lounging areas including a stone gazebo and private swimming pool. The property sits on 18 acres of land with access to a lake (10 minutes walk). The house, grass lawns and pool are secluded, as if on a hill in Vermont with endless views, yet New York is one hour away. Also the perfect site for a wedding, in fact, we were married right here.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1990

          About the owner: We are both in the arts. My husband is a writer and a producer and I am an actor and a cooking show host. We entertain often and the house reflects our eclectic taste.We have a 10 year old daughter who does horseback riding at a near by stable, she also plays tennis at a local club and our front lawn is large enough for her to play just about any sport.

          Why the Owner Chose North Salem:
          We fell in love with the stone look of our ca. 1840 house with the long winding driveway that offers seclusion. The house is very well laid out and well ventilated with lots of light, and because we are on hill there is always a breeze. It is comfortable and inviting. The natural landscape was also appealing with lots of stone out-croppings scattered throughout and many large shady trees. In addition to the rock garden we have added many perennial beds and a large vegetable garden.

          The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
          We have a very inviting swimming pool which is in total harmony with the landscape. It feels more like a pond although it has a diving board and is 13 ft deep at its deepest.There are several on the property wooded trails for walking, and a nineteen acre lake that boarders our land. There are two barbeques for outdoor grilling. We have a large front lawn - with a expansive view, for those who like sporting activities. If you want to stay close to home there are many interesting local towns to visit where you can shop and dine. Among our favorites are Ridgefield Connecticut and Katonah, New York. There are wonderful restaurants here in town: The Farmer and the Fish, and Vox for example. Great opportunities for antiquing are close by and lots of local nurseries and farm stands selling berry pies and honey and corn and tomatoes and local produce.
