Many believe that dining plays a very important role in setting the stage for romance and perhaps there’s no better time to test out this theory than on Valentine’s Day.

With Sunday’s debut of Season 3 of Downton Abbey, we were reminded of some of the great estates that still exist right here in Westchester County. This classic stone manor known as Scarlet Hall fits the bill with its Old-World grandeur and innate elegance. It’s easy to imagine the lavish parties that were hosted here during the Gilded Age when many of New York’s social elite came to Bedford to establish their country homes. In fact, the home features its very own ballroom,with a soaring barrel ceiling and a wall of French doors that open to surrounding stone terraces. There’s even a minstrel’s gallery that looks down over the ballroom. Perhaps most impressive however is the fact that the home doesn’t require an entire “downstairs” staff to keep things running smoothly. Renovated to the highest luxury standards, the residence offers comfortable modern-day living backed up by the latest 21st century technology.
