74 Island Drive in Rye

The panoramic waterfront views are stunning from this beautifully remodeled Cotswold Colonial on Rye’s coveted Manursing Island. The property invites its residents to cool off in the luxurious pool nestled on the water’s edge, or to stroll to the private beach on Long Island Sound. With kayaking, paddle boarding, boating, and fishing at the doorstep, this is the ultimate home for a waterfront lifestyle. The home is also close to two exclusive beach clubs, located in the elite Rye City School District, and is just 38 minutes from midtown Manhattan.

The 5,582 square feet of living space are accented by a leafy garden with walls of climbing ivy and a sprawling patio overlooking the sound, perfect for moonlit dining. An elegant foyer with graceful archways unfolds to a living room with a fireplace and three sets of French doors, leading to a bluestone terrace with sweeping Mill Pond views. A quaint sitting room off the entry offers the perfect setting for afternoon tea, while the dining room is the ultimate party venue, opening to a terrace and wet bar. The great room features a limestone fireplace and is lined by glass doors to the patio with panoramic vistas, and the adjacent gourmet kitchen flows into a sunny breakfast area. Also on the first floor is a guest bedroom with its own private entry, and a well-placed laundry area with outdoor access and a walk-in fitted supplies pantry, leading to the two-car garage. The second floor includes four sunny bedrooms, including two master suites with ensuite baths, spectacular water views, and spacious dressing rooms. Situated in an enclave with gated 24-hour security, this property is a true waterfront haven.
