Only if you like it perfect...
This 20,000+ square foot Georgian masterpiece on 25 acres,
known as Glencliff, is one of the finest homes in America!
This manor home on the Bedford / Mt. Kisco border was built in 1930, on the site of the McLean family farmhouse built in 1916, for Alfred and Ruth Meyer Cook, to complement their residences at 630 Park Avenue and later 927 Fifth Avenue; Alfred being the long-time counsel of The New York Times, and; Ruth being one of the nine children of wealthy industrialist, one-time head of the Federal Reserve, and Washington Post owner, Eugene Meyer, who had constructed the nearby, epic Seven Springs (now owned by Donald Trump), for his own use, and; was later owned by the then Chairman of then Purchase-based Clevepak Corp., William Green.
The home was completely renovated by the current owners in 2006, with new and contemporary splendor. These owners have used the home as a weekend and summer place, affording them the perfect spot, only 45 minutes from Manhattan, to give their four kids all the advantages of time in the country. As a prime example of what this house has to offer, when the kids were younger the family organized a summer camp at the house, with each kid inviting their group of friends and a total pack of over 50 kids attending, complete with swimming, tennis, kayaking, soccer, lawn games, hiking, campfires, and even a daily visit from the ice cream truck. Glencliff has everything to offer.
The entire home was finished with fun at the forefront. The two boys rooms have lofts, connected to each other through a secret passageway, the second floor landing features an air hockey table and a basketball hoop in the hall to the kids rooms, and the massive pool has a theme park-like tubular water slide.
Glencliff also includes a guest cottage, itself an enviable lair. Georgian and red brick to match the main residence, this is a home complete with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, kitchen, living room, and dining room.
And the 65 foot pool and red brick cabana is right out of a Slim Aarons photo. Complete with a columned and clear-domed pergola, brick decking, and perfectly manicured landscaping.
The house sits on the top of the hill at this 25 acres of lightly wooded rolling meadows, complete with a pond, and the property sits amongst the most prestigious large estates on Sarles, adjacent to the Marsh Sanctuary.
Only 45 minutes from New York City, this property is perfect for...well, the qualified and discerning buyer is already making the call…
