Room to Roam

Bedford, New York, presents a five-bedroom, five-bathroom estate: the epitome of sophistication on Wood Road. The residence—which rests on 33.07 acres—is an incredible country home. Surrounded by breathtaking grounds, the estate is reminiscent of a New England farmstead, designed by Tom O’Brien. Completed in 2010, the construction combines a wonderful, open floor plan with an understated, modern aesthetic. Spaces are clean and crisp, utilizing the finest materials. The interior is stunning, with windows throughout the home to usher in views. Floors on the first level are reclaimed chestnut while floors on the second level are bamboo. Throughout, there are 14 rooms on three levels comprising 7,900 square feet. All of the mechanicals are state-of-the-art geothermal with Smart House electronics.

The handsome façade is clapboard with a cedar shingle roof, which is enhanced by a classic porch. The entrance boasts a bathroom and a closet, with access to the “billiard room” with raised paneling. Doors open to the “great room,” which offers an inviting living space with a fireplace, a coffered ceiling, and French doors. Beyond, there’s the kitchen: a space finished in crisp white with Crown Point cabinetry and Caesarstone counters. In addition to these features, there’s a three-car garage—which is topped with a suite for guests—as well as an indoor pool and an outdoor pool with hot tub.

This gem is situated in the heart of Bedford, New York, on a long, paved drive that winds past a scenic pond. It passes several outbuildings and an allée of fruit trees, culminating in a courtyard in front of the residence. The property offers gently rolling lawns, towering trees, and stone walls. The pond is perfect for fishing or skating. There are three oversized paddocks and a riding ring for horses. The stable is beautifully built, housing four stalls, a feed room, a tack room, and a hay loft.
