132 Pondfield Road West is located in the historic Cedar Knolls enclave in Bronxville.
Historically designated in 1995 by the Yonkers Landmark Board, Cedar Knolls is a single-family residential community of approximately 143 homes. Constructed between 1913 and 1930, its homes are situated on small hills, knolls, winding roads and hidden lanes.
Why do we refer to 132 Pondfield Road West as the “Cookie House?"
This stunning Mediterranean home was once the childhood digs of Felicia Bond, the celebrated writer, and illustrator of children’s books. Known for her illustrations in the collaboration of the “If Your Give A Mouse …” series, Ms. Bond wrote and illustrated her first book Poinsettia and Her Family based on family life at 132 Pondfield Road West.
As soon as you enter this welcoming home, you know you are in a magical place featuring compelling architectural details, a fantastic floor plan, and fabulous light. You can imagine an aspiring author and illustrator being inspired by the views and light in this home. The sunroom features Palladian doors and floor to ceiling windows as well as built-in shelving that creates a flexible living space. The gorgeous living room is anchored by two Palladian doors offering access to the most amazing veranda with rooftop views of Cedar Knolls and two seating areas for fireside conversations, relaxing and formal living.
The formal dining room with Palladian doors to the terrace is conveniently located just off of the renovated dine-in kitchen making this floor plan wonderful for entertaining. The incredible master bedroom suite features six windows with western exposures, two large closets as well as a study/den and full bathroom. Two additional bedrooms and a full bathroom complete the second level. Two additional bedrooms, a full bathroom, and storage are all available on the third floor of this 3,024 square foot property.
The Cookie House enjoys easy walking distance to the Bronxville Metro North Train Station, Bronxville Village, restaurants, shops, SoulCycle, Pure Barre, libraries, movie theatre, Montessori School, Sarah Lawrence College, Saturday Farmers’ market (in season) and a quick train ride to Grand Central Station.
History, location, and architecture truly make this sensational property a “North of New York City “ gem.
