This week’s video tour brings us to Devonshire, an unforgettable English-style Country Estate situated at 96 Westwood Drive, Bedford Corners, NY 10549.
Calling all aspiring land barons! This rare Gilded Age Mansion on over 101 acres represents one of the region’s most impressive and interesting properties. The home was built in 1901 for financier J. Borden Harriman, a member of New York’s social elite, and his wife Daisy who like many other notable New Yorkers of the day came to this area to build their grand country estate. Known as “hilltoppers” among the locals, these prominent residents built their mansions atop the rolling hills for which the area is known.
Originally set on over 250 acres, Devonshire still retains the architectural splendor and remarkable privacy of its historic roots. And it’s surprisingly accessible thanks to its proximity to New York City- only 45 minutes away.
