Six out of Six
Nick Churton from the Houlihan Lawrence, London office, does the math and discovers a perfect five in Rye.
The Property: 12 Dogwood Lane, Rye, New York
The Broker: Houlihan Lawrence
The Agent: Joan M. O’Meara
At a dogleg in Dogwood Lane, Rye is the entrance to a drive that sweeps up to a beautiful colonial home set in private and secluded grounds. This exclusive part of Rye is close to golf and country clubs. It is also only three minutes drive to Rye train station and close to some excellent private and public schools. For goodness sake, it’s only 15 minute’s walk to brunch at Ruby’s Oyster Bar & Bistro in the heart of Rye. This is a first-class place to live.
12 Dogwood Lane is first class also. This is not just a Rye house. This is a Susie Cappelli, Rye house. For those who don’t know why this means so much, Susie Cappelli has been an established leader in Rye real estate development since 2005. Her signature involvement in new build and key renovations is a big deal. Cappelli’s sense of style, design flare, and construction expertise combine to make her a busy and sought after developer. If one is having a house built or one made-over then Cappelli is a great professional to have in one’s corner.
This home is an excellent example of Cappelli’s work. Here she worked hand-in-hand with the current owners to re-imagine this 1963-built home. It has been designed for modern family-style living but retains a traditional flavour. Have no doubt; this is a beautifully executed root and branch renovation.
So, great looks, accommodation, location, schools, commuting and convenience: to me that sounds like the top six requirements that any buyer is looking for.
