Property Description

Tower Cottage is an architectural treasure featuring original detailing & charm, yet also perfectly suited for a modern lifestyle. The lovingly restored Queen Anne Victorian is the definition of an iconic property & is beautifully sited on a ridge high above the village, just a stone’s throw to all Ridgefield has to offer incl the Prospector Theatre, dog park, sporting amenities, 5-star restaurants, boutique shopping & schools. It is also in an ideal location for commuting to Manhattan w/the Katonah Train Station shuttle stopping only steps away. Built in 1880 by renowned architect Charles B. Northrup, the home’s fascinating history incl summertime visits by a young Jackie Bouvier Kennedy when her aunt, Maude Davis, owned it as a summer residence. The impressive wrap-around porch leads into a spacious front hall with well-proportioned rooms, fabulous flow, 10-foot ceilings, 4 fireplaces & classic architectural details that cannot be reproduced today. The new kitchen features white custom cabinetry, Carrera marble countertops, a Bertazzoni stove, two wall ovens, separate full-size Subzero refrigerator & freezer units, & the original coal stove. Other rooms incl formal dining room, living room, breakfast room, butler’s pantry, 6 bedrooms, library & an office.
