Location: Irvington, New York
For those seeking the best of both worlds, look no further than this exquisite Mediterranean estate that offers opulent yet sustainable living just 19 miles outside of Manhattan, in Irvington, Westchester County.
Built in 1912 and lavishly restored, the former home of famed New York City luxury developer Michael E. Paterno features seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, soaring beamed ceilings, a gorgeous marble foyer, original stained glass windows, doors, and plaster work, numerous fireplaces, Juliet balconies, and a terra cotta roof, all spread over 11,357 square feet.
But that’s not all: A spacious three-bedroom-four-bath guest house plus a pool house with indoor pool and sauna add an additional 5,000 square feet of living space, for a total square footage of approximately 16,857 square feet.
The landscaped grounds are beautiful, too, with a lawn arranged like a quad that provides ample outdoor entertaining opportunities, including a fireplace and small fountain. The two-acre property is equipped with geothermal heating and cooling and a Cogen power plant that provides the home with all its electricity. Which brings us to the listing’s most enticing draw: Through a special partnership with Tesla, any agent that visits the property and brings a buyer will receive a Tesla lease. Prospective buyers will also get the chance to test drive Tesla models S and X at a special launch event on January 18.
Located at 2 El Retiro Lane and listed by Compass, it’s asking $8,998,000.
