For more than a century Ox Ridge Farm has been one of the most coveted properties in the Katonah/Somers area. This extraordinary colonial (c.1819) offers a matchless balance between the beauty of American classic design and the needs of modern family life.
A long, winding driveway leads to this gracious home privately sited on 7 acres of towering oaks and mature beech, dogwood, spruce and pine. The main double-door entry opens to a foyer from which the living room, dining room and family rooms are accessed in an easy, natural flow. High ceilings and tall windows throughout result in a home flooded with light; plaster moldings, four working fireplaces and original wide-board floors provide a sense of warmth and ageless solidity.
The far side of the living room opens to a sky-lighted gallery beyond which is a stunning library/office with fireplace, clerestory ceiling, and views of the expansive grounds. Sun-filled from dawn to dusk, the large kitchen is state-of-the art and the adjacent dining room has a built-in China cupboard.
The 25’x25’ family room with cathedral ceiling and exposed beams has floor-to-ceiling mullion windows on three sides. Four bedrooms and two full baths are on the second floor, including a new master suite with high tray ceiling, east, south and west exposures and antique spruce floors acquired to match the existing flooring of the house. There is yet an unfinished third floor loft (900+sq. ft wide board floors and 8’ ceiling) with atrium windows on either end providing space for an exceptional private office or studio. The level and gently sloped surrounding grounds are as captivating as the home itself, highlighted by a classic pergola with mature Japanese wisteria, bluestone patios, stone walls and a 48’ x 20’ in-ground pool.
