Want to own a piece of the genius behind the old Pennsylvania Station, the Brooklyn Museum and the main campus of Columbia University? Well, now you can, and for just $3.85 million.

A Westchester property designed by the renowned architecture firm McKim, Mead & White just hit the market. Known as “Four Chimneys,” the waterfront estate, located at 10 Sheldrake Road in the town of New Rochelle, was built in 1938, according to 6sqft.

The Georgian mansion is surrounded by 1.65 acres of landed ground. Inside, some historic details remain, however we are sorry to report some “luxury” renovations were made, such as converting the ballroom into a gym, installing an infinity pool on the edge of Sheldrake Lake, and adding an indoor half-court for basketball.

But perhaps the best feature is that it is just a 30 minute commute to Manhattan. Here’s a look inside.
