In the Bronx neighborhood of Spuyten Duyvil overlooking the Hudson River, this unusual mini-mansion at 3061 Scenic Place offers a chance to live the manor life without leaving New York City. Asking $5,990,000, this 5,872-square-foot recently-renovated Georgian Colonial home is a different kind of townhouse, breathtaking river views included. A full outdoor kitchen takes full advantage of the views, while a home movie theater keeps everyone entertained when the weather says, “stay indoors.”
Attention to detail and top-quality finishes make the home’s interiors mansion-worthy, from the opulent marble foyer to roomfuls of custom millwork and moldings. Dark wide-plank wood floors create an understated frame.
On the first floor, three exposures frame a formal living room anchored by a contemporary fireplace. Step outside and spend the afternoon on a balcony that overlooks the backyard and the river.
An expansive eat-in kitchen is anchored by a honed marble island, complemented by marble countertops. An impressive collection of hard-working Gaggenau appliances includes double sinks, dishwashers, a steam oven, a double-wide fridge, gas and induction cooktops, and plenty of pantry space. A bonus room functions as a home office.
Up a dramatic stair on the second floor is a suitably luxurious primary suite with a marble bath. A private stairway leads to a full-floor sitting room with scenic views on every side and two large walk-in closets.
There are three additional bedrooms and two full baths. Each of these chambers has enviable views of the grounds and scenery just beyond.
On the home’s lower level is a dream of an entertaining space. A casual living room opens onto a formal dining area overlooking the river. Also on this floor is a fully-appointed theater room with reclining leather seating.
The host will undoubtedly get the most compliments–and have the most fun–on the sprawling stone patio overlooking the river. This oasis features a full outdoor kitchen equipped with a grill, pizza oven, and wood-burning fireplace.
