IRVINGTON, N.Y. -- A new listing in Irvington, grand enough to draw comparisons to Jay Gatsby's fictional mansion, has recently hit the market. A real-life dream home built in the 1920's, this Georgian Manor is luxurious enough to make Gatsby himself jealous.
Listed by Carolyn Joy of Houlihan Lawrence, 2 Fargo Lane, also known as "Longmeadow," is built on 12 sprawling acres, that stretch to the bank of the Hudson River. The mansion includes 10 bathrooms, 8 bedrooms and over 11,000 sq. ft. of living space. Almost every room has been updated but it still has a classic feel.
Today, early 20th century homes have become sought-after real estate, offering glimpses into life during one of America's most remarkable decades. In the 1920s, the economy was booming, technology was advancing and a wealth of magnificent homes were being built across the New York metro area. From Tudors to classic Colonials, homes built in The Roaring Twenties exude a genuine sense of luxury that is hard to replicate. 2 Fargo Lane is no exception.
While the home has a classic feel, Longmeadow contains plenty of modern updates including a renovated kitchen with marble countertops, indoor pool and full-service gym and recreation room. The home's living room features a limestone fireplace and an oak-paneled library that open to a stone terrace, overlooking the Hudson River. The brick and stone facade, complete with the large patio make the home look beautiful.
Unrivaled in location, setting, and quality, Longmeadow is a sought-after riverfront estate just 20 miles from Manhattan and a few minute drive to shopping and schools. Any resident would be blown away by all this home has to offer.
