28 COLONIAL ROAD, WHITE PLAINS
Built in 1710, this fully renovated and historic 4 bedroom and 3.5 bath colonial is situated on 1.2 acres of gently sloping grounds, combining original architectural features with contemporary design and updates for an all-around sense of charm and surprise. The home once belonged to Benjamin Lyon, a Revolutionary war hero who cast a vote for the Declaration of Independence, so preserving its historical significance was a must for its owners. Its original colonial aspects have been beautifully re-discovered in each space, including exposed wooden beams, 18th century bricks, wood-burning fireplaces, period moldings, and wide king’s board wood flooring. Additionally, the home has all-new windows, boiler, central AC, appliances, electrical, and plumbing. The home’s distinct character has not gone unnoticed, and in December of 2018, it was featured in House Beautiful Magazine for its whimsical combination of history and contemporary color, pattern, and texture. With its bold and iconic decor, it’s a cozy and inviting space that promotes luxurious creativity and intimate conversation - the perfect blend for a timeless American treasure. Though its owners have relocated, throughout their entire labor of love, they enjoyed every moment spent in this delightful home.
