Luxury Homes with Special Features

When buyers are looking for a house to call home in Scarsdale, sometimes a special feature captures their eye. Here are two luxury homes on the market with special additions that make them stand out. Looking for a secret garden - or a waterslide? See below:

75MamaroneckAerialView75 Mamaroneck Road 

A six bedroom totally redone home on 1.3 acres at 75 Mamaroneck Road has a garden that looks like it could be in England. The 2,500 square foot vegetable garden, divided by gravel pathways, features two pergolas that are covered in climbing vines, bearing cucumbers and tomatoes. On the ground, find eggplants, zucchini, herbs, peppers, butternut squash and pumpkins. The custom irrigation system makes it easy to water.

The garden boasts beautiful flowers including rose bushes, marigolds and petunias planted among the75MamaroneckRoadGarden vegetables. Also find tulips and dahlias, and many flowering perennials and shrubs including azaleas, rhododendrons, hydrangeas, peonies and lilies throughout.

The 1.3 acre property is home to flowering fruit trees including apple, persimmon, peach and plum trees. Below is a photo of some plums recently picked to make jam.

The owner has always been passionate about his vegetable garden, and does much of the planting and weeding himself (he told me he spent 2 hours this evening out there). He first learned from his grandfather when he was a little boy. Now the family’s granddaughter runs through the garden and enjoys the saltwater swimming pool.

plumsThe house was originally built in 1910 and has grandly proportioned rooms, with a dining room that can seat 16. There’s a large kitchen with a 10-foot island, 6 bedrooms with en suite baths, a wine cellar, geothermal heat and a generator.

The home is listed for $4,800,000. Check out a video of the property here.

Another exceptional home, at 4 Heathcote Road was also completed renovated. The property includes almost 4 acres with a main house, a guesthouse and a heated pool with a water slide and spa, bound to thrill the kids.

The house has an interesting past. The original house was designed and built for the Obry family in 1906 by the architect John Duncan who also designed Grant’s Tomb and other notable structures. It had 15-foot ceilings on the first floor and 10.5 foot ceilings on the second floor.

The home’s second owner was Anton Shutz who was an established and successful artist who etched NYC scenes in copper backwards so they would print forwards. Mr. Shutz handed over all of the copper etchings for the war effort when the U.S. government was in need of materials. The current owners purchased the home from Mr. Shutz’s widow and became only the third owners of the century old home.

Their renovation of the home was completed in 2012 and maintained its charm while giving a nod to the two previous owners.


The main residence is approximately 10,000 square feet with a grand 22' entry foyer, 12-foot ceilings, geothermal energy, and well water for the pool and the grounds. In the main house there are 6 bedrooms, 4 baths, 5 powder rooms, 4 gas fireplaces, a living room with a custom bar, home theatre, a game room with a golf simulator, a gym, and a wine cellar. The 3,500 square foot guesthouse includes a great room, 4 bedrooms, 4 baths, kitchen and 3 changing rooms. The living spaces continue outdoors and mimic that of a five-star resort with a heated pool and waterslide, spa, and stone fire pit

The house is listed for $11,000,000. Learn more here.
