Federal, not too Reserved

For a grand Bedford Hills estate, this 1890 house looks quite calm and welcoming. The 5,400 square foot, 6 bedroom house features a number of gracious and spacious rooms, each with lovely original details. The family room, with it's large skylight and wall of French doors, is quite appealing. The house is set on 8.6 acres with some gorgeous plantings and a pool. However, the two circular drives—one on either side of the house—strikes me as a very strange way to use the land. Located just east of Route 117, the house is close to Bedford Hills village and train. For what it is, the tax bill of $48,330 is hefty but not that surprising. And the asking price seems remarkably reasonable. $2,975,000
