Price Match: 2 Suffern Dutch Colonials

A white arbor in the front yard welcomes visitors to this pristine home not far from the village center. A big front porch and the circa-1900 original front door are equally inviting.

The front parlor has a wood-mantel fireplace and built-in storage. Original stained columns separate it from the living room. A bow-windowed formal dining room is beautifully wainscoted, continuing the chair-rail-height paneling from the living room. French doors lead from there into a similarly bow-windowed family room (which can also be used as a guest suite, with its own full bath). A unique double staircase leads upstairs to the master bedroom and two additional bedrooms.

A vaulted ceiling is a welcome surprise in the eat-in kitchen, which is outfitted with stainless-steel appliances and is roomy enough for a family-size table. The kitchen leads out onto a back deck and into the fenced backyard, where you can enjoy the view into the woodsy park that backs up to the property. Close to trains and shopping, this home is a gem.

The family room also has hardwoods, as does the dining room, which has a bay window with a window seat and a built-in breakfront.

The updated, ’50s diner-esque kitchen has a Corian countertop, new black-and-white flooring, curvaceous cabinets, and a retro-style, Garland six-burner range. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, each with its own walk-in closet. The renovated, custom-tiled main bathroom has a soaker tub. There’s been many improvements in this house, including a rebuilt chimney, new double-pane windows, blown-in insulation, new furnace, and central air.

The family room leads out to a paver patio and fenced backyard. A detached one-car garage has an electric-vehicle charging station; but you can save even more energy by taking a short walk to the village.
