40 West Ardsley Avenue, Irvington
The Barberries, built in 1906, is a majestic 7 bedroom Mediterranean style Villa located in the desirable enclave of Ardsley Park in Irvington, New York. This home is set on over 1 acre of land and illustrates the beautiful design of Frederick Law Olmstead, the mastermind behind Central Park in NYC, with its tranquil reflecting pool, specimen plantings, and meandering walk-ways. Just a short distance from the main house, a glass-enclosed private studio, offers numerous possibilities for today’s family. The wonderfully appointed interior, with its richly hued woodwork, gleaming inlayed hardwood floors, leaded window and French doors that lead to multiple terraces and balconies, high ceilings, and five stately fireplaces, displays a timeless beauty rarely seen today. Renovated and restored and only minutes from Manhattan, this home offers the elegance of the past with the comforts of today. $2,100,000 914-591-5600.
