16 Lewis Road
Irvington, NY

THE GLAMOUR OF A CASTLE MEETS BROADWAY & THE ARTS – “Villa Keen” Irvington, NY, Circa 1929. Just imagine… Joseph Keen & his wife break ground to build a “Cinderella” castle on a breathtaking 2.43 acre parcel of land, a stone’s throw to Halsey Pond, minutes to the Hudson River, and a short 30 minute trip from Manhattan. Coming home, meandering through the stately stone pillar entry, the Beech Tree with historic Indian carvings in front of the sweeping stairs tells a story from the 1700’s, but that we will save for a rainy day… Fast forward, Lloyd Stratton, president of the Associated Press takes residency, tirelessly typing from the oak library. In the 1960’s enters resident Robert Wright, producer of the Carol Burnett Show & other Broadway staples. If you are seeking inspiration beyond your wildest dreams, everything is still in tact today, including the Chesney fireplace mantle, Mackenzie-Childs fixtures, and the Schonbek Austrian crystal chandelier… If you are looking to entertain, be our guest, whether you enter through the 15′ stained glass gates to your private courtyard, spend your time in the grand dining room suitable for Beauty & the Beast, the Green Room, relaxing poolside, or in the pool house, the choice is yours. Of course your guests or residents will cherish their stay in the turret bedrooms with ornate stained glass windows, or in the private guest quarters with separate entry… Speaking of entertainment, the list of distinguished guests and residents goes on, like Academy award-winning actress Shirley Jones, Tony Award-winning actor Jack Cassidy and their son, multi-platinum recording artist Shaun Cassidy. If only these walls could talk… Well, you may still hear the grand piano resonating in the formal living room by one of the many roaring fires… A perfectly sound structure on a dead end private street, with newer systems & mechanics, a train line to NYC just 5 minutes away, and award-winning Irvington Schools, here is your chance to enhance a property that can never be duplicated today. In fact, “Villa Keen” is so special, a replica only exists in California by one of its former owners. Are you ready to live this fairytale fantasy?
