Yes, we’ve been known to state our objections, on the record, to the trend of renovating older home interiors with a sweeping, boring, white/off-white palette that we find dispiriting at best.
When we’re considering this wonderfully remodeled 1974 Tarrytown home, however, forget all that. Yes, there are white walls and cabinetry and tiles galore. But there’s also a spot-on sensibility about the era present, and that makes all the difference.
For starters, the update both doubles down on and softens the mass that is the metal roof, slanted a bit aggressively toward the street, without sacrificing the privacy that it telegraphs.
Located on a generous, almost half-acre lot, the 4,208-square-foot home backs to a spring-fed creek. A long wall of windows and glass doors leading to a deck, pool, and limestone patio allows in natural light there while maintaining privacy. (Plus, the staging includes an irresistible, bright red beanbag chair.)
The interior features three living areas, wood floors, and an updated kitchen with requisite granite/marble counters and wine refrigerator.
The home has four bedrooms and four bathrooms including a master suite with vaulted ceilings, walk-in closet, and private decks that overlook the property.
The pool is surrounded with the Lueders limestone and the sound of the spring-fed creek.
