An Old-World Charmer on Captain Merritt’s Hill

From the shelter of the front porch, we invite you to step inside this magnificent Tudor revival in the heart of Mt. Kisco’s popular Captain Merritt’s Hill and be transported back in time.

Surrounded by expansive lawns, the main house on this former gentleman’s farm is chockfull of arts and crafts-era charm: coffered ceilings, stained glass windows, carved millwork, and pocket doors. The first floor features three fireplaces, a living room, dining room, sunroom, updated eat-in-kitchen, mudroom, and handsome staircase.

The second and third floors boast five light-filled bedrooms, including a master suite complete with fireplace and sleeping porch. Downstairs, just inside the original carriage entrance, are a keeping room with fireplace—the perfect spot for a modern-day media room—and a spacious storage area that houses the updated mechanical systems.

The ivy-covered, stone porte-cochere shelters the carriage entrance and a path to the carriage barn that houses a vintage stall, feed bins, milking station, and potting shed downstairs plus a sunny, spacious studio upstairs in the former hayloft.

A cabana sits beside an approved pool site, and an old chicken coop is now used as a child’s playhouse. The property also includes a fountain and vintage garden beds.

One of the greatest perks of owning this home, formerly known as “The Lodge,” is living in Captain Merritt’s Hill. The neighborhood, rumored to be named after a 19th-century sea captain and founding father of Mt. Kisco, features stately homes on safe, tree-lined streets within walking distance of both the business district and the train station. It is also known for being the site of many block parties and a place where neighbors know one another by name.
