Larchmont’s waterfront location, idyllic town and enviable proximity North of NYC – 35 minutes to midtown Manhattan – make it a popular suburb to plant roots. Yet finding a property that blends both privacy and convenience is rare.
Which is just one of the reasons The Waterfall House is so spectacular. Sited on one of the largest land parcels in Larchmont’s walkable Murray Avenue Elementary School neighborhood, the property features nearly 1.7 acres of lush, private grounds with a cascading waterfall for which the property is named.
Originally built in 1910, the home was meticulously redesigned and renovated by world-renowned architect Imrey Culbert in collaboration with the home’s current owner, an acclaimed artist. The design duo’s collective vision resulted in a Contemporary Arts & Crafts jewel that takes full advantage of the property’s unique, scenic landscape including the pond and waterfall.
Inside the 4,400 square foot home, natural materials and architectural details seamlessly balance the organic influences outside. Starting at the home’s entry, custom woodwork from the front door to the wood-paneled ceilings and distinctive curved-wood light fixtures make a natural statement.
The home’s organic aesthetic continues throughout the ground-floor living spaces. A sweeping, open floor plan featuring multiple intimate seating areas and a large dining area offer spaces for entertaining and everyday living. Light oak wood floors echoed by clean and contemporary inlaid wood ceilings and natural wood moldings create a modern style that unifies the space. A raw stone accented wall surrounds floor to ceiling windows and doors that flood the space with natural light while perfectly framing the treetop, waterfall and pond views.
The modern gourmet eat-in kitchen perfectly juxtaposes the natural wood elements. Nature-inspired pale sea green cabinets are accented by pristine counters and a marble tile backsplash that stretches to the ceiling behind the stove. Chef’s level appliances await gourmands. The expansive island flows into a breakfast room with vaulted ceilings and enclosed by windows featuring lush views.
Ascend the double-height natural wood staircase to experience the tree-top master suite. Situated to capture the views, the master bedroom features high architectural ceilings and a private balcony overlooking the Falls. Three additional bedrooms and two bathrooms, plus an office, also enjoy enviable aerial views. An additional en suite bedroom located on the first floor offers a perfect sanctuary for guests.
On the exterior, the stucco and stone façade paired with a multi-level terracotta tile roof ensures the home organically exists with the natural surround. Numerous porches, patios and balconies invite you to take in the beauty of the property’s various natural water features and lush grounds.
An extraordinary home in a one-of-a-kind setting, The Waterfall House presents a rare trio of property, privacy and community, located within walking distance of the Village, trains, schools, parks and playgrounds.
