Situated on the former site of an early 20th century Italianate castle, just 13 miles from New York City, a captivating mansion in Tarrytown, New York is on the market for nearly $13 million.
Built from quarried stone, the Georgian-style residence, totaling 18,000 square feet, sits on 2.83 acres on the end of a private cul-de-sac.
Gray stone that was hand cut and hand crafted by stone masons is integrated in the exterior and interior architecture of the property.
A 2,000-year-old Roman artifact, now on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, was discovered on the land during construction of the house in 2015, according to a spokeswoman for the developer Greystone Mansion Group.
The nine-bedroom, 11-bathroom (two half bathrooms) home has a formal ballroom, an in-home theater, and a wine cellar.
A two-story library is inspired by the design of the Morgan Library in Manhattan, which was built by Pierpont Morgan in 1906.
The indoor fitness complex is equipped with a basketball court, a rock climbing wall, and a yoga room
First listed in 2015 when construction began, the newly-built estate overlooks the Hudson River, Tappan Zee Bridge, and Palisades Hills.
Historic “Greystone Castle,” built in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, was torn down in the 1970s after a fire.
The listing at 6 Carriage Trail is held by Owen Berkowitz of Douglas Elliman.
