CO-EXCLUSIVE Fifteen minutes from the hustle and bustle of Midtown Manhattan, you can be transported to a private villa - like one you might find in Spain, Italy or in the distant suburbs. The best private schools in America are within walking distance. This cant possibly be in the Bronx. The homes architecture successfully brings the outside inside and vice versa. French doors in the spectacular sunken living room open to the side yard and let in the fresh air. Breathe. The doors in the loggia / sun room open to an enclosed zen-like European-style courtyard with a large play area, koi pond, and a wide variety of specimen trees, shrubs and flowers. The eat-in kitchen is ideal for cooking and entertaining. The party never has to leave the kitchen, but it would be a shame not to take advantage of the extraordinary formal dining room that comfortably seats 16. Dinner party anyone?

The result: warmth, brilliance and an abundance of positive energy that will make you smile. The massive master bedroom is adjacent to a nursery (or reading room) which overlooks the garden and offers serenity, privacy and space to spread out. Also upstairs is the childrens wing with four additional bedrooms. There are a couple of additional bedrooms with a private bathroom downstairs off the kitchen and near the homes rear entrance. Five bathrooms total (one a Jack and Jill) and a powder room each have a character unto themselves. Large closets and a huge attic provide essential storage. There is a heated two car garage, a fenced in yard (happy dog and happy children!) , Juliet balconies, seclusion from the street and privacy from the neighbors. There are thick masonry walls coated in stucco which keep the home breezy and cool in the warmer months and maintain the homes warmth when its colder.
