It’s no secret the Town of Bedford contains a rich history and culture that can’t be defined by a singular event, place or institution. Luckily residents have all of this within an arm’s reach with museums, estates, libraries, art galleries and other local favorites helping to define their own personal histories. 9 Ivy Place in Katonah offers just that, as the 1.2-acre ranch estate is situated just a minute from the village’s “Museum Mile.”
Privacy and accessibility is intertwined at 9 Ivy Place, which is part of a private cul de sac that complements its proximity not just to Metro-North stations and major highways but to cherished local establishments, as well. The home is just a minute’s drive from Museum Mile—a stretch of road that includes The Katonah Museum of Art, The John Jay Homestead and the Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts, which is home to an international music festival, year-round concerts and other cultural events.
“Just those 3 cultural institutions will entertain, educate and provide a wonderful social atmosphere for all ages for many years,” wrote Ivy Place’s listing agent Karen Benvin Ransom on Guide Me Home to Westchester. “I have often said my children were raised at The Katonah Library and The Katonah Museum.”
Combining ease and affordability with luxurious living, Ivy Place offers unique features such as two master suites—one with his and her baths, bedroom with a new hall bath plus a very large bonus room with its own bath. Other special features like a large dining room with a fireplace, a stunning enclosed porch and a brand new eat-in granite/stainless kitchen and breakfast bar pull the home’s warm, welcoming atmosphere together. It’s outside where this comfort truly comes to life as Ivy Place’s great room leads the way to a spectacular pool setting with a lattice-covered outdoor living room. All of this is “fenced” in with herb gardens, walls of rhododendrons and other natural barriers providing peaceful serenity.
