Famed US Butcher Lists Lavish Riverdale Mansion for $6M

Pat LaFrieda, renowned as America’s most celebrated butcher, has put up his magnificent waterfront residence in Riverdale for sale, priced just under $6 million. The four-story house boasts nearly 6,000 square feet, making it one of the largest and most luxurious properties in Riverdale. Nestled on a private street aptly named Scenic Place, the residence offers breathtaking views of the water.

Listing agent Adam Bachner from Coldwell Banker emphasized the exclusivity of this property, stating, ‘This is the only single-family house in Riverdale that directly overlooks the water.’ LaFrieda, the man behind the reputable family business, Pat LaFrieda Meat Purveyors, is famously hailed as ‘the magician of meat.’ His culinary prowess is evident in the house’s exceptional indoor and outdoor kitchens.

The indoor kitchen, filled with natural light, features ample space for dining. It includes two sinks, two dishwashers, a steam oven, a conventional oven, a gas range, and an induction range, all equipped with high-end, digital appliances. The LaFrieda family designed the kitchen with child-friendly elements, ensuring safety while engaging in culinary activities as a family.

Moreover, the outdoor kitchen complements the indoor setup with a pizza oven, refrigerator, griddle, and grill. The spacious residence also hosts a movie-theater room, a heated travertine driveway, and a two-car garage. Jennifer LaFrieda, Pat’s partner in business and life, expressed their emotional attachment to the property, saying, ‘My husband and I poured our hearts into this house, creating lasting memories. Its sturdy construction and custom-made materials ensure a remarkable experience for the next owner.’

Originally built in 1915, the Georgian Colonial mansion underwent a meticulous renovation by the LaFriedas, preserving its architectural integrity and foundation. The house sits atop a cliff on Scenic Place, offering unparalleled views of the Hudson River and the Palisades, nestled within a Special Natural Area District to safeguard the region’s unique ecosystem.

In a heartwarming gesture, the LaFriedas purchased the house near their children’s school but now plan to relocate to Alpine, NJ, for proximity to their expanding business. With a blend of modern luxury and historic charm, this Riverdale gem embodies a harmonious balance of elegance and comfort, promising a new owner a life of tranquility and sophistication.
