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. For the marriage minded, it might make sense to serve the famous Engagement Chicken, a recipe that is so delicious that it is rumored to have generated lots of proposals. Regardless of the menu, here are a few spectacular dining rooms taken from our luxury properties for sale that are sure to provide the perfect backdrop for a romantic evening.
The dining room at 888 Bedford House in Bedfordis elegantly scaled and filled with light. After dinner, it will be easy to work-off those extra calories with a swim in the indoor pool, or a game of tennis on the indoor court housed in the detached tennis pavilion – one of the few private indoor facilities in the area.
A fresh modern flair prevails in the dining room and the rest of the 10,000 square feet of living space at Stoneleigh in Armonk, a majestic and exceptionally crafted Colonial built in 2008.
Formality and comfort are balanced perfectly in the dining room at Northshire in North Salem, a classic English Country house designed by celebrated architect, Mott Schmidt.
There’s plenty of room for a grand event in the dining room at Courseview in Bronxville, which enjoys a unique double-lot setting overlooking the golf course of the Siwanoy Country Club.
Enveloped in handome paneling, candle-lit dinners are a natural in the dining room at Mayfield Manor in Harrison, an 8-bedroom home nestled in the Sterling Ridge estate area.
There are a variety of sophisticated dining areas to choose from at Orchard Hill in New Castle, a private country retreat designed by renowned modernist architect, Richard Meier.
