With summer right around the corner, the heat is on to get our beach bodies into top shape. It might be too late in the year for a discounted gym membership, but with a fully-equipped exercise room in your home you can get swole on your schedule. Here are some of the best spaces from our listings to lift things up, put them down, climb an imaginary staircase and even bust a dance move or two.
RYE | 3 Club Road | $11,500,000
In color psychology, blue conveys concentration, health and healing, which makes this skylit space perfection for getting in the zone. A mirrored wall with ballet bar, along with just the right amount of hardwood-floored space, makes it multi-purpose and adaptable to your preferred configuration.
RYE | 105 Hix Avenue | $2,695,000
This is the train to...fitness. The next stop is...Weight Room. No need to stand clear of the closing doors, there aren't any in this open subterranean space beneath a charming modern (2003) home in Rye's Hix Park neighborhood. The subway station-themed recreation cavern comprises an arcade, exercise room and full bar built in the style of a 1950s soda counter, complete with checkerboard and drop-down projection screen. Other highlights include an authentic traffic light, faux-painted boulders and an homage to Paul César Helleu's Grand Central ceiling.
ARMONK | 4 Cowdray Park Drive | $6,600,000
What you see above is merely an amuse-bouche of what's better described not as a "home gym" but rather "home-full featured health club and spa." This sumptuous lower level, found within a millenial Conyers Farm manse bearing uncanny resemblance to an authentic French Chateau, includes a cardio/weight room, natatorium with resistance pool, a hot tub, sauna and full bathroom. All the amenities of a resort with a decorative warmth to bring it home.
ELMSFORD | 1 Knollwood Crest | $2,850,000
Spacious and bright with hues as soft as the floors, there's enough room to make workout time a whole family social event. The home sits on Knollwood Country Club grounds, with over 9,000 square feet of living space in convenient Central Westchester.
ARMONK | 9 Davis Drive | $2,795,000
The value adds here are a fireplace, stained hardwood ceiling and French doors opening to the outside, whether you're headed out or want to let in the breeze while breaking a sweat. You'll also find a tennis court and saltwater pool elsewhere on the home's four waterfront acres on Davis Pond.
