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).

All that, and it has an in-ground violin-shaped pool. How many of your neighbors can say that about their New York country estate?

The House

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.

The Grounds

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.

The grounds have a feel of seclusion and tranquility, and yet the property is only minutes from great shops and restaurants, as well as some of the nation’s best schools.

The Commute

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.”
