Does Your Mansion Have a Violin-Shaped Pool?
Ten Thousand Square Feet of New York Paradise
The home for sale at 55 Penwood in the New York community of Mount Kisco is truly a wonder to behold. With a multitude of bedrooms, bathrooms, and living areas inside and immaculate grounds that feature multiple sculptures, water features, and beautifully maintained plantings, this home is a steal (for the right buyer at $950 per square foot).
The home features eleven bathrooms, six bedrooms, a billiards room, a home theater, a gourmet kitchen with a white marble island, both casual and formal dining areas, a grand entryway, several casual living rooms, and a formal reception or sitting area.
The master suite includes dual sinks and a whirlpool bath. Every part of the house is loaded with state-of-the-art automation and electronic security, comfort, and entertainment amenities. The house even pulls the majority of its power from a solar panel array installed on its roof.
But the nigh-ridiculous level of luxury appointments and opulence doesn’t stop at the threshold. The grounds of 55 Penwood feature a ninety-foot violin-shaped pool and spa, an outdoor shower, a collection of meticulously crafted stone terraces, Koi ponds loaded with mature specimens of rare Japanese carp, an outdoor gourmet kitchen and dining area, a gas fire pit, a sports court, and plenty of green space for a variety of outdoor sports.
All this opulence, and would you believe that the property is within an easy commute of New York, too? On a good day, which is almost as rare as a home of this stature coming on the market, driving the thirty-six miles to midtown Manhattan will take you just a little less than a solid hour. On a bad day… who knows?
For the sane among us, there’s always the train. Commuting to the center of the City that Never Sleeps will only take you an hour and a half by train, with trains departing Mount Kisco every twenty minutes. And if you have your own plane (why not, right?), Westchester County Airport is only a few minutes away.
Living It Up in Upstate (Barely) New York
If you have the $2,000,000 down payment and $50,000 to spend on your mortgage every month, this level of opulence (did we mention the violin-shaped pool?) can be yours. Regardless of cost, this home is definitely a stunner and with the easy commute to Manhattan, it won’t be on the market long. As the saying goes, “get it while you can.”
