4 Bedroom Home • 3.5 Bath • Sleeps 8
This is a beautiful, fully furnished house with large rooms. The neighborhood is on a quiet, low traffic street in Ludlow Park. It is near the Riverdale border, a short walk to the Metro N. train, 5 min. drive to BxM1 and 2 bus. 10 min. drive to Broadway IRT and Van Cortlandt Park. 30-45 min drive to all airports. If you are looking for a place where parking is not an issue and you would like room to roam, this may be the place for you. Kids can play in the back yard away from traffic, and a nice side patio is very pleasant most months of the year. The kitchen is large and a perfect gathering place, situated next to a TV room and dining room if going a little more formal is your speed. Built in the 1920's (no ghosts, promise!) the construction is so solid that the whole family or friends can co-habitate with serious privacy. The living room also offers a welcoming gathering space to have morning coffee or just chill out. It is a little imposing from the outside, but from our family to you we can say that it is a warm and comfortable atmosphere here, and such a nice retreat after a day in the city or travelling elsewhere.
Excellent restaurants, horseback riding, Neighborhood House Pool and children's programs, all NYC attractions.
Because we do not live close by, we have a nice fellow who looks after the place. He resides on the property but there is a separate entrance, assuring privacy.

About Judith Rudiakov
We are a family of musicians who now live in Vermont much of the time. Our family lived here full time together during kids' high school and college years in the 80's and 90's. Construction such as this house has really can't be replaced, which is why we have elected to keep it and rent periodically. Every year, the house is available for most of the summer, and people take advantage of its hospitable atmosphere during Holidays and other times.
Judith Rudiakov purchased this House in 1980
Why Judith Rudiakov chose Ludlow
The owners, my parents, always wanted a private home after years of apartment living. The proximity to good neighbors we knew and the closeness to NYC made it a great choice.
What makes this House unique
Not far from the Hudson River, this house was appealing for many reasons, but mainly because of the separation available in the interior. Someone can be watching TV in one room and not disturb someone in the next. We have spent so many happy and relaxed times here it is hard to count.

"Grand Dame"! Just Brilliant!!
This was over overwhelmingly a great success, great choice of property. Huge bedrooms with extra bedding, 3 bathrooms very well stocked, great kitchen with everything a person could need, loads of space, and just oozing with character. Bill the caretaker is an absolute gent, and was so helpful. Now that we are back was like a dream.
The owners answered questions very promptly and great more importantly with a house full of kids great wifi. This is not a modern house, but this is not what we were looking for. We all loved our experience here.
Wouldn't not hesitate to recommend it.
Roomy, comfy lots of character, extremely conveniently located
We came with my Mom, my kids and my husband during the crazy cold snap. 10 and below. This space gave us room to gather together and hang out or to each have our own space. No cabin fever in this home. I would recommend for people traveling in groups. We went into the city some days and stayed cozy on others. We could sign in to our netflix account and watch on the big screen, which was nice. Good Wifi. It is an older home, so bring your slippers and leave your ocd at home. Lots of beautiful art to admire.
We had some minor communications issues checking in because the numbers we were given and online were jumbled but VBRO helped us out and the owners got right on it.
I have had other stays where there were light breakfast supplies like rolls, juice and creamer so we didn't have to rush to the store on our first night. That would be nice, although it wasn't promised and groceries are easily reached from this property.
Did I mention I would stay here again? Because it is a great place.
Beautiful old house
The house was terrific. It was large and very comfortable and was truly "A Home Away from Home" . The whole process was very nice and easy, too. Thank you very much!
Beautiful old house
The house is beautiful but not well cared for. Neighborhood is lovely and close to Metro North train. House has air conditioning but only in 3 bedrooms, so if you book in July or August, bring a fan. I was there in August. Wall paper is old and curling up at the seams. Venetian blinds are discolored, broken and bent on most of the windows. Kitchen is functional. Cabinetry is old. Front door screen does not close properly. Furniture is very old.
One curtain rod in the master bedroom was bent and falling down. It was just sad to see it is not being well cared for.
We have to say that what this guest has said is true. The house is in need of the items mentioned and we will attend to those items shortly. The candor of this guest is appreciated.
Gracious and comfortable home
This home was the perfect choice for our family headquarters for our son's wedding weekend. Every room is spacious and comfortably furnished, so we were able to relax and entertain our out of town guests. The beds and baths were well-stocked with everything you need to enjoy a vacation and the owners were so easy to work with. The caretaker is a delightful and charming host, quick to respond to our inquiries and requests. This is an ideal home for a New York vacation!
We loved everything about this roomy, light, airy, elegant, and accommodating home in a quiet pocket of Yonkers. Will return whenever we can; it left a lasting impression of graciousness, and beauty. We ate once at the Dolphin, a high-end but cosy & family-friendly waterfront eatery only seven minutes away by car but generally wanted to stay as much as possible at the house to savor its timeless elegance. Caretaker Billy P. was lovely, too--helpful & unobtrusive. A thoroughly enjoyable & memorable graduation trip all the way around, so thank you to our hosts for making this Gatsby-esque gem available to us!
