Set on an acre of land overlooking Wykagyl Country Club, Blue Anchor in many ways seems almost like a mirage, a full-block compound in suburbia in a city single-digits in miles from the New York City border that's worlds away in mind. Sequestered behind stone walls, specimen trees and exquisite English gardens, the c.1915 home is an authentically-preserved example of architectural refinement from Westchester's Tudor renaissance, with original plank floors, ironwork, leaded glass windows and other sought-after period details. It also has an even more unique attribute: the interiors are chock full of ship timbers and other nautical artifacts, frozen in time within the home's storied walls. Add terraces, balconies, provenance (it was owned by famed cartoonist Clare Briggs) and a pool.
