Tucked beyond the Purchase Community House is one of the area’s best-kept secret neighborhoods, where families walk, run, and congregate, and parents teach their kids how to ride bikes. Take Purchase Street to Cottage Street to Dorann Road, where a stately but modern manor house sits atop 2.5 handsomely landscaped acres resplendent with specimen trees and well-tended gardens.
Park under the portico in front and enter a gracious foyer where a curved mahogany staircase is center stage. “Back stage” is a series of large and light-filled rooms with impossibly high ceilings. The chef’s kitchen was designed for casual living — a long island where every member of the family can gather round and take part in meal prep, and guests will gravitate. All the living spaces are sophisticated and inviting.
This is a home where you can work, play, entertain, ruminate, and unwind.
When the weather is fine, the covered patio and outdoor kitchen get lots of use, as do the free-form pool and hot tub. The waterfalls beyond create tranquility. On the other side of the pool house, it’s rarely quiet but the hockey rink and sports court ensure kids have plenty of opportunity to hone their athletic skills and exhaust themselves.
The lower level boasts a 10-seat home theater, wine room, a wet bar, and a full swing golf simulator.
The six-bedroom, nine-bath home includes a spacious primary suite with his-and-her baths and closets, a sauna, and a sitting room with fireplace.
If you are in the market for quiet luxury at a reasonable price, 10 Dorann Road may be the home you’ve been searching for.
