These modern-era French Regency style homes have been popping up on the local market from time to time, and both recent examples we’ve seen do the architecture that inspired them justice.
This home, according to the listing, is located on a “prestigious corner” of Tarrytown (Matthews and Scenic drives), which means buyers don’t have to worry about being lumped in with all the run-of-the-mill corners in the central neighborhood locaed just west of MoPac.
The rarefied nature of the home doesn’t stop there. Surrounded by giant oaks, one enters it through hand-carved, century-old doors from a Rothschild Chateau in France and finds an open with limestone and marble floors setting the tone for the interior.
Built in 1970, the two-story home measures 5,489 square feet. It features five bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms, as well as an outdoor kitchen (complete with appropriately oversized fireplace) overlooking the pool. There’s a fireplace in the living room, too.
Wall-sized windows allow views of the wooded yard and outdoor living areas throughout much of the house.
The two-story frame home has bedrooms with sitting areas, roomy closets, and built-ins.
In back is a pool and an outdoor living and entertainment space.
