One of the most spectacular properties in Westchester County, All View estate is available for rent furnished, beginning this summer. The 23,000-square-foot home is listed at $38,888 per month and is perched on a nearly three-acre peninsula on Long Island Sound, in a private, gated community with security in New Rochelle/Larchmont.
The grand residence is comprised of 13 bedrooms, 13 bathrooms, 9 fireplaces, staff quarters, a movie theater, wine cellar, billiard room, sun porch/gym, four kitchens (chef's, butler's pantry, large family eat-in and staff), formal dining room, formal living room, family room, library, custom closets throughout (including his & her dressing rooms in the master suite) and a six-car gagrage. The kitchens boast custom La Cornue and Vikings ranges, two Gaggenau ovens, five refrigerators (three of which are Sub-Zero), three Miele dishwashers and one Viking dishwasher. Historic extravagance melds seamlessly with modern aesthetic in the hand-plastered vaulted ceilings, a diamond-leaded gallery of windows, a gilded central staircase, two-story white marble columns, the finest materials (including rare onyx) and parquet floors finished in oak, gray French wax and ebony.
Built in 1890 and designed by architects Sydney Stratton and the legendary Stanford White for Charles Oliver Iselin, an American banker and three-time America's Cup-winning yachtsman, the estate is named for the breathtaking scenery that surrounds every inch of the property: panoramic views of Echo Bay and the Long Island Sound, stretching south to New York City and Connecticut in the north.
The grounds were originally conceived by the architect and designer of Central Park, Frederick Law Olmstead, and today include a private beach, boat dock, badminton/mini-tennis/basketball court and a newly refurbished, 30' x 60' mosaic glass swimming pool with LED lit fountain jets and a built-in hot tub. There are also stone-paved viewing terraces, two mahogany decks, a custom-designed fire-pit dining table for 16 with built-in banquette, mature growth trees, two wisteria-covered pergolas, a koi pond and a rose arbor.
Throughout the years the house has hosted numerous dignitaries and celebrities, and most recently endured a multiyear renovation during which it was lovingly and meticulously restored, bringing it back to its former glory while advancing it technologically and sutainably into the 21st century. All View is just a convenient 30-minute commute to New York City.
