In the quiet Westchester county village of Larchmont, this five-bedroom home sits on nearly two scenic acres and boasts a cascading waterfall on the property which inspired its nickname: The Waterfall House. Originally built in 1910, the residence was redesigned and renovated by architect Imrey Culbert in collaboration with the current owner, the listing tells us. On the inside, natural materials and architectural elements echo the nature outdoors while large windows throughout amplify the views. It’s now on the market seeking $2.55 million.
The 4,400-square-foot home features an open floor plan on the ground floor, where the patio opens onto a large living area surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows. Hardwood floors and wood-paneled ceilings frame the verdant views and juxtapose against raw stone accents. The modern eat-in-kitchen has a breakfast nook and screened pocket doors that lead to a double-height dining area.
Upstairs, the master suite gets the best views via a private balcony directly overlooking the Falls. There are four additional bedrooms, two of which have en-suite bathrooms.
The property offers plenty of privacy but is still located within walking distance of the village center, the area’s highly-rated schools, and the local train station.
