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 three 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 with 9 ft island and mudroom, all tastefully renovated in 2013. Access to an expansive deck from both the living room and the family room amplifies the easy entertaining vibe. Upstairs, the primary bedroom suite with fireplace adjoins a south facing deck as well as a large refreshed bath with double sinks and a large work from home office. Two additional bedrooms with connecting bath on the 2nd plus two more bedrooms and bath on the 3rd. Upgraded central air, a lower level recreation room and parking for four cars in front makes life easy breezy.
