About 1 Locust Avenue

Immerse yourself in the timeless allure of this 1923 Spanish Colonial Revival masterpiece, reimagined with Mediterranean and Moorish influences. One Locust Avenue is an extraordinary home which seamlessly blends modern elegance with historic craftsmanship and charm. Situated on 3/4 of flat acreage in the highly-sought after Larchmont Manor, this sun-drenched residence offers unparalleled experiences: walking distance to village shopping and restaurants, as well as local schools; next door to neighborhood park with access to tennis courts, sports fields, and walking paths along Long Island Sound inlets; and quick access to major highways into Manhattan and Upstate. This property has great curb appeal. As you approach the home's front entrance from its circular driveway, you'll be captivated by the privacy afforded on all sides by 10 to 14-foot trees, and manicured gardens providing the perfect setting for entertaining guests both outside and inside. Wrought-iron, Juliet balconies, a sienna-colored, stucco exterior and columns at the front entrance provide visitors with a taste of the drama they can expect inside. Step inside this extensively renovated and meticulously maintained property and you are greeted by a mosaic-tiled floor entrance that spans two floors and offers views to the lushly landscaped backyard and pool area beyond the sunroom. Interior walls, moldings and other architectural elements have been treated by experts and master craftsmen with faux painting and intricate carving. An open and seamless flow throughout the first floor guides you across dark hardwood floors and lofty ceilings, creating an ambiance of elegance and historic grandeur. Spanning an impressive 7,464 square feet across three floors, this home offers ample space for comfortable living. The heart of this residence is a chef's eat-in kitchen, seamlessly connected to front foyer, mudroom and garage, dining room, and an expansive Great Room. The kitchen features arched view channels through which you see a large center island, double sinks, bar counter, and desk space; Viking stainless steel appliances; and a Subzero refrigerator. Picture gatherings with loved ones and guests in this inviting space, adjacent to a Great Room with a beamed ceiling, Moroccan wall tiles and architectural elements carved by the same craftsmen who completed the "Moroccan Courtyard" at the Metropolitan Museum of Art; it also has a wet bar and Viking wine cooler. The dining room showcases designer wallpaper with French doors that also lead out to the decks overlooking the pool. There are two staircases from the first floor to the main living quarters on the second floor. A small landing at the top of the main staircase offers access to the primary suite which includes the bedroom, a light-filled office/sitting room, overlooking the backyard and pool, a dressing room and primary bath which features double sinks, a steam shower and oversized jacuzzi bathtub. Three additional bedrooms, all en-suite, plus a computer/TV lounge, complete the second floor. Significant storage is available in the attic, accessed by a standard stairwell off the main upstairs hallway. Two remaining living spaces in this home make this property one of a kind. The first is a guest extension, and is accessed via stairs off the Great Room. Two bedrooms, one bath and a sitting room offer guests a private and comfortable space that is a sure home-away-from-home. The second is the property's basement which is fully-finished and boasts a huge carpeted playroom, a room with full bath and walk in closet. The exterior of this home offers just as much promise to new owners and their guests as does the interior. An oversized pool, hot tub and cabana in the back sit among beautifully landscaped grounds with multiple shrubs and trees. The space is a private oasis, with extensive greenery extending beyond the confines of the immediate yard. Perfect for entertaining, this space can be accessed through French doors off the sunroom, dining room and Great Room. One Locust is a truly exceptional property that combines the best of the best. Don't miss this opportunity to own and preserve this architectural gem.
