55 Penwood Road, Bedford Corners, New York, United States, 10549
A one-of-a-kind 5.11 acre estate in the gated enclave of Penwood is on the market for $8.5 million in Bedford Corners, New York. According to Realtor.com and Apartment Therapy, “the home’s past owner, former Wall Street executive Jay Dweck installed the 50,000-gallon pool, which took workers 15 months to complete, and cost $1 million. The pool’s 5,600 fibre-optic strands and 450,000 glass tiles give it a colourful glow, and the violin’s “bow” is actually twin koi ponds situated to appear like they’re below the water.” The impressive pool, designed and installed by Cipriano Landscape Design & Custom Swimming Pools, is modelled after a Stradivarius violin, which Dweck owns. Dweck purchased the property in 2012 for $4.8 million before taking on a multi-year project that would transform just about every foot of the 10,500 square foot residence.
Extraordinary architectural details emanate warmth and style from the luxurious floor plan offering formal spaces, intimate gathering places and a main floor grand master suite with extravagant master bath. An upper level retreat with deck and outdoor fireplace opens to three bedroom suites, a professional grade gym and theatre. Two additional bedroom suites on the first floor for guests and staff. Music and video can follow you throughout the house as you walk the radiant heated floors and exterior pathways. The 5-acre resort inspired exteriors include the award winning 90-foot violin-shaped pool with flanking koi ponds, outdoor kitchen, terraces, ball field, sports court and exquisite formal gardens with fountains and footpaths. Apartment Therapy also reported that Mariah Carey rented the residence in early-2020 as an escape from the start of the coronavirus pandemic. The property is on the market for $8.5 million with Brian Milton of Compass.
