40 Moore Road, Bronxville
Discover an abundance of space and elegant living in this stunning brick Georgian colonial home. Built in 1929 for noted author and play-write Charles Lawton Campbell, this estate is located in the quiet coveted Lawrence Park West section of Bronxville. Sited on a professionally landscaped half acre, the 6,000 +/- sf home is adjacent to Sarah Lawrence College and less than 15 min to the prestigious Horace Mann, Fieldston and Masters schools. With midtown Manhattan a mere 16 miles away, living here will allow you to have the best of both worlds! The house was built with quality details such as plaster walls, slate roof and oak floors. The present owners executed a major expansion and restoration of the property post-acquisition, integrating the interior spaces with the outdoor terraces and lush gardens.
The spacious main level features an ultra-chic front to back living room with wood burning fireplace, gracious dining room with adjoining butler’s pantry fitted with mahogany cabinetry and a large office/viewing room with 10’ ceilings and rare Ipe Brazilian walnut flooring. The sun-lit family room with stone fireplace and kitchen are an open-concept with 30 feet of windows spanning the back and bringing the outdoors in. The eat-in kitchen opens to a large sweeping terrace and surrounded by mature, professionally landscaped gardens. Two stone staircases leads you up to a secret private bluestone terrace ideal for reading or relaxing in your hammock. A lovely guest bedroom, office with built-ins and full bath + powder room with Carrera marble round out the first floor.
Upstairs enjoy a life of luxury in the large master suite fit for a king or queen with steam shower, jacuzzi bath, dressing room with custom built-ins + a walk-in closet. Three more bedrooms, two baths and a laundry room complete the second floor. A spectacular tongue-and-grove knotty pine paneled third floor with skylights provides a light filled bonus space perfect for home schooling children, WFH, yoga or artist’s studio.
The partially finished lower level consisting of over 2,300 additional square feet is perfect for a home gym or flex space with hobby/workshop, storage and an unheard of 1,300sf 4-car garage. This beauty is one of a kind. Enjoy ‘as is” or take it to the next level.
