1 Beach AvenueLarchmont, New York NY10538
A waterfront escape and an architectural feat, complete with all the modern amenities. One Beach is an entertainer's dream: water views from every room, formal and informal spaces to mingle, dance, and celebrate, including an expansive courtyard replete with multiple dining and sitting areas, including a fireplace. Enjoy four-season alfresco gatherings, even after dark. This incredible beach home is a thirty-five minute express train to New York city, in proximity to excellent schools & all the conveniences of Larchmont Village. The wonders of One Beach have been espoused in TIME magazine, the New Yorker, Architectural Digest, and more. Built in the imagination of automobile giants and Broadway royalty, the house sits at the end of storied Beach Avenue, on the Long Island Sound, adjacent to Larchmont Manor Park and Horseshoe Harbor. The home is a model of elegant and luxurious modern living. It has a sunny, oversized, gourmet, eat-in kitchen with no comfort spared. The kitchen leads to a formal dining room with doors to the outside dining and entertaining courtyard. Next to the kitchen is a large family room with additional glass doors to the courtyard. Continuing on is a large mudroom for easy storage and entry, laundry room, attached garage, and staircase to two bedrooms and playroom/home office. Completing the northern wing is a sophisticated wood paneled library. On the southern wing of the home is a stunning formal living room with a grand fireplace, palladian windows and 180 degree water views. The mezzanine level has two bedrooms and a hall bath. The second level boasts an exclusive master suite, with a large spa-like bathroom, custom designed dressing room, separate sitting area, and so many windows you feel as if you are sleeping on top of the water. The large and private home office is adjacent to the master bedroom and beholds views of Long Island. There are more office spaces throughout the home in both central and hideaway locations, perfect for multiple people working or studying from home. The home has a private guest-wing with bedrooms, living space and bathroom of its own. The home gym is conveniently located on the lower level with stone floor, fireplace and windows galore. The distinctive feel of One Beach is set off by one-of-a-kind finishes. The first-floor guest suite, visited by Henry Ford, was built with salvaged wood from the Hudson steam ship the "Mary Powell." The guest bed faces the captain's liquor cabinet, still intact. The dramatic, high-ceilinged living room was designed as a perfect cube, and built with hand-carved wood ceilings. This house was truly built for story-telling and entertaining. The quadrangle courtyard is a signature of One Beach: a whimsical, enormous outdoor space for entertaining, wandering, daydreaming, and inventing. The space has both a custom fountain and a bell tower with French carillon bells to play. You may feel as if you are a world away, but in fact, only minutes to the train, village, school, and famous Larchmont Manor Park. Private, luxurious, steeped in magic. This home is ONE of a kind. Unlock the splendor of Larchmont's greatest stewards & talents. Live on the beach. One Beach.
