Built in 1952, the space still features many of the details of Mid-Century design, including glass and stone walls, floating stairs, and cathedral-style ceilings with beams. It also boasts a bespoke wine cellar, a completed basement family room (formerly Cosell’s studio), a built-in wet bar, an original 1952 driver, and two stone fireplaces made of rock supplied by the property. The one-bedroom, one-bathroom guesthouse has a private kitchen, living space and stone walls.

Fresh landscaping has also added over 200 new bushes and trees (including three types of magnolia), rock walls and a magnificent entrance to the premises. Accommodation is accessible from a private road lined with Belgian blocks.

“The sale includes some historical objects related to the former owner Howard Cosell, who was collected by the current owner or inherited by the house,” said Melante. Widely known for coining the phrase “Bronx is on fire,” Kosel died in 1995 at the age of 77.

The address is about an hour north of Manhattan, opposite the Pound Ridge Golf Club and adjacent to the 26-acre Reserve by Preserve.
