Need more space? This Bronxville Colonial is big, renovated, and close to the city—and it just got a price cut

Westchester's Bronxville is one of those picture-perfect suburban areas that looks like it was pulled straight out of a magazine, with large houses and perfectly manicured lawns. And it appears as though this $1.995 million four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath brick colonial house fits that description to a T.

Good news for urbanites looking to make the big move: Bronxville has a fairly bustling downtown complete with mom-and-pops and it's only about 15 miles from midtown: 20 minutes by car and about 30 by train.

And possibly even better news: This particular Bronxville house recently saw a $105,000 price cut.

Designed by Randolph Evans, architect of Brooklyn College, it served as his private residence in 1937. The property's been fully renovated in the last three years.

The eat-in kitchen has marble countertops and a marble backsplash, as well as custom cabinets and Wolf and SubZero appliances.

The master suite has dual walk-in closets (!) and a fireplace (!!).

The finished basement level has a family room, laundry room and mudroom—unheard of perks in most New York City apartments.

But we're particularly keen on the spacious outdoor space. There are trees galore and a brick fireplace ( #heaven). There's also a formal boxwood and rose garden inside the courtyard out front.
