Just like the people of The Bronx are wide and diverse, so are its real estate.  Many people not familiar with our borough are often shocked to find out that some of the most expensive real estate outside of Manhattan is not in Brooklyn but actually in the Northwest corner of the Bronx.

Riverdale, along with its neighborhoods of Spuyten Duyvil and Fieldston features some of the most toniest areas in New York City.

Many homes in the Fieldston area and the Estate Section of Riverdale can range from a modest 2,000 square feet to well over 10,000 square feet mammoths.  Not only that but we dare say these homes also sit on some of the largest lots in all of New York City.

Most homes in NYC sit on a typical 2,500 – 5,000 square foot plots of land which only gets you a measly .057th of an acre to .11th of an acre.

In Fieldston and other parts of Riverdale, homes often sit on half an acre to well over an acre of land.  That’s a lot of valuable real estate!

The Bronx really does have something for everyone.

Below is an excerpt from Curbed and images of the mansion that’s for sale and make sure to follow the link for more images and floor plans:

It’s no castle, but this 113-year-old Fieldston mansion is very impressive in its own right. For starters, it’s huge, measuring a whopping 10,450 square feet, thanks to an expansion by the current owners, who bought the house 30 years ago. Plus, it has all the trappings a mansion-seeker could want: an indoor lap pool with a jacuzzi, a heated driveway to melt the snow, Jerusalem stone and Venetian plaster walls, “multiple dining rooms,” a tent-equipped terrace that can seat 100, and a professional-grade kitchen (to feed those 100 guests) with “multiple refrigerators.” There’s also an “au pair suite” with its own entrance, two offices, and eight bathrooms. The asking price is $7.95 million.
