Making you forget you live in the city


There’s a secret the eastern part of Long Island doesn’t want you to know about: You don’t have to live in the Hamptons to feel like you’re living in the Hamptons.

In fact, you can find that Hamptons lifestyle right in your own neighborhood on Grosvenor Avenue. It’s there you’ll find one of the amazing shingle-style houses designed by McKim Mead & White very close to what is considered the highest point in the Bronx.

Perched on a stone bluff at 5031 Grosvenor — to be more specific — this unique and spacious home has a wraparound porch letting you overlook all of Riverdale.

Walk into the grand double-height colonnaded foyer, complete with a sweeping staircase that leads to the second floor.

Don’t jump ahead of yourself, however, because there is a lot to see on the first floor — a cozy living room with a working fireplace. A  large dining room perfect for entertaining. A high-end state-of-the-art kitchen with a center island, stainless steel appliances, and truly top of the line.

You’ll also find stone counter tops, two sinks, two ovens, and two dishwashers.

Adjoining the kitchen is a family room that looks out at the pool as well as a private and secluded backyard.

Did we mention you’ll find hardwood floors throughout the house? And don’t forget the attached three-car garage.

There is plenty of room to sleep with five bedrooms and five full bathrooms — all easily accessible via an elevator off the foyer. All bedrooms have bathrooms en suite, with beautiful fixtures from Waterworks.

This magnificent home is adjacent to Fieldston, providing you a rare opportunity for outdoor enjoyment while still maintaining a city lifestyle — all from the comfort of your own home.

And this could very well be your home at an amazing price of $4.9 million.
