WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. — To say that Nancy Everett has a personal connection with the French Normandy home for sale at 20 Glendale Avenue in Rye would be an understatement. The property listed by the associate broker for William Raveis Real Estate was built by her step-grandfather in 1926. She spent a lot of time there growing up.
“I guess you could say it’s come full circle,” Everett said. “We loved to play on the Juliette balcony and in the terrain of the land outside.”
Much of the home’s personality has been preserved. The spiral staircase in the turreted entry hall is still intact, as is the architecture of the living room’s cathedral ceiling and exposed wooden beams. The back windows of the house overlook the Apawamis Club’s 11th fairway.
“Being upstairs is almost like being in a tree house — there are beautiful views out of every window,” she said.
There are aspects of the home, which is tagged at $2.575 million, that have been updated to accommodate today’s lifestyle. For example, the kitchen comes equipped with granite counter tops and stainless-steel appliances, while the master suite features three walk-in closets and a marble bathroom.
The Glendale Avenue home also occupies a full acre, which Everett says is somewhat uncommon in Rye.
