With its restored copper roof and glorious front porch, William Bates' gatehouse to the historic Hilltop enjoys sun all day and lovely views of Bronxville School's bucolic green fields. A quick hop to shops and train, "Hillside Cottage" offers a compelling on foot lifestyle. Inside, hallmarks of the Bates design include 3 architecturally distinct fireplaces and waterfall moldings. Best of all, the home's inherent character is enhanced by a dramatic vaulted ceiling family room adjoining a super sized cooks kitchen w/ 9 ft island and mudroom, all tastefully renovated in 2013. Access to an expansive deck from both the LR and the family room amplifies the easy entertaining vibe. Upstairs, the primary BR suite w/fplc adjoins a south facing deck as well as a large refreshed bath w/double sinks and a large WFH office. Two additional BRs w/ connecting bath on the 2nd plus 2 more BRs and bath on the 3rd. Upgraded central air, a LL rec room and parking for 4 cars in front makes life easy breezy.
