An estate-like miniforest in the big city

Despite the gated entry and impressive yard, this 1970s two-story home offers a rather humble approach from the front. Located in the Deep Eddy/Westfield section of Tarrytown, it’s sited on an ideal lot for a house in a popular central neighborhood—one that spans a 0.4-acre space between two streets and reveals a private, forested hillside in back.

Built in 1979, the 2,206-square-foot home is currently staged with an eclectic mix of traditional and possibly accidentally on-trend decor (see: the rattan revival)—probably that of the current owners. That’s a refreshing break from the generically modern setups one often sees in home listings (though we could do without the bearskin rug), but m the giant, treetop window-walls and Saltillo tile and hardwood floors offer an array of style possibilities.

In addition to lovely patios, decks, a pool, and its backyard ramble, the home has two bedrooms and two bathrooms and features vaulted ceilings, custom built-ins, two living areas, and two fireplaces. Located at 1310 Elton Lane, it’s listed by Stephanie Panozzo with Compass.
