RYE, N.Y. -- Carol Labi’s listing at 5 Woods End in Rye packs unusual lineage. It is owned by a former player on the Yankees, built by a former player on the Knicks and is the current home for a United Nations Ambassador.
Carol Labi works for Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty. She said the most unique details about the 6-bedroom, 6-bath Colonial come with the amenities associated with it. The home includes an exercise room, movie theater, pool room with wet bar, inground pool and home office. The home is listed for $2,800,000. Click here for property details.
“Even at $2.8 million, whoever buys it will be getting a lot of home for the money,’’ Labi said. “There’s even an additional 1,800 square feet in the finished basement that is not included in the square footage. There are a lot of amenities and it’s a superior value.”
The brick home was built in 2000 and sits on 1.46 acres. It is also convenient to Interstate 287, the Hutchinson River Parkway and 684, and is just minutes to the newly-renovated Rye Ridge Shopping Center and town of Rye.
“It’s close to everything, but there’s a lot of privacy,’’ Labi said. “It’s a private road with just three homes.”
A grand entry features a beautiful double staircase that leads to five upstairs bedrooms. “You could have a party for 50 people in the entryway alone,’’ Labi said. “It’s a great entertaining home, inside and out.”
The huge kitchen and butler's pantry includes a huge center island, two ovens, three sinks, three dishwashers and abundant cabinetry. There are also two washers and dryers.
Labi said the large master bedroom has its own sitting room/office. There are also two walk-in-closets, two toilet rooms, double-glass shower and two vanities -- including one that is height-appropriate for a 7-footer.
The home was designed by architect Chris Demetriades, who has built some of the most exclusive homes in lower Westchester over the past 20 years. And while the home has a Rye address, the home is in the Harrison School District and young children will be in the Purchase Elementary School boundary.
“There are some similar homes in the area,’’ Labi said. “But what makes this such a great home is the privacy, amenities and space that comes with it. It’s hard to find a home that provides this much value for less than $3 million.”
