Bedford Corners is a sweet little hamlet in the Westchester County town of Bedford, New York. It’s filled with old-growth trees, hills, and high-end properties. Residents are drawn to the area seeking its bucolic peace and quiet, its natural beauty, as well as its easy commute to New York City offices.
One of the nicest properties for sale in the affluent community is an estate that comprises a roomy house, inviting pool and best of all, frontage on 27-acre Howlands Lake. This means residents and the guests can fish, swim, boat and paddleboard right from their own dock. Set on a generous 4.03 acres, filled with rolling lawns and old trees, the property is available for $4.2 million via Angela Kessel at Houlihan Lawrence.
Built in 2005, the modern Shingle-Style house is nicely spacious at nearly 6,500 square feet, which does not include the finished lower level. The interiors combine white walls and dark wooden flooring with contemporary high-end furnishings and attractive millwork and fenestration. There are six bedrooms, seven full and two half bathrooms.
The living room includes a fireplace, while the commodious kitchen combines fetching features such as an enormous copper hood with both painted and natural wood cabinetry. The kitchen also includes an enormous island, a sitting area, and a breakfast area. Counters are marble and soapstone, which is also used in the pantry, and there’s herringbone wooden flooring.
The herringbone flooring continues in the oval-shaped dining room, which also includes niches for showing off artwork. The wood flooring changes design in the library/office, where there are floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and French doors to the yard. The second-floor primary suite — all the bedrooms, actually — is a soothing snowy color. All the bedrooms are also en-suite, fitted out with white marble and high-end Waterworks fixtures.
On the lower level are a plethora of options for indoor leisure and recreation: a family room, with space for a projector TV and a stage for performances, an art room, a full bath, and a gym with water views.
Perfect for dog owners, the yard is completely fenced, with stone patios and an striking outdoor fireplace with a 20′ chimney. The pièces de résistance are the oversized 52-foot swimming pool and the cute pool house. With swings and hammocks set up between old-growth trees, peaceful enjoyment and pastoral relaxation is all but guaranteed.
