Convenience in the country is a good way to describe this home in the sought-after Mill Ponds community on the Westchester/Putnam border. This custom colonial on a cul-de-sac is well-maintained and newly painted inside and out, with multiple decks to enjoy the outdoors, and a quick jaunt to major highways.
The kitchen has warm wood cabinets, parquet flooring, and a breakfast bar, with a uniquely tiled countertop and backsplash. A floor-to-ceiling fireplace wall with built-in shelving is the spotlight in the adjacent family room. A formal living room, with Palladian windows, has French doors that lead to a deck. There are two master suites, upstairs and down, along with two other bedrooms.
An HOA of $272 per month allows access to the community pool and tennis courts, plus other low-maintenance amenities.

You’ll find all the room you need in this expanded Cape. Amid five acres of peace and quiet, you’ll forget that, minutes away, you can hop onto the Taconic and reach “civilization.”
A main-floor master suite has a bow window overlooking the property. Upstairs are two more bedrooms with a shared bath. The kitchen has granite counters and a gas stove, and shares an open concept with the dining room. The garage was renovated into a summer kitchen/family room, with a fourth bedroom and bath (or second master suite) above. The basement has an exercise area and TV room.
A screened-in porch, stone patios, and cozy deck beg for parties. The onsite barn has electric, phone service, and water for an at-home office, plus there are three additional outbuildings. The pond on the property is stocked and aerated for fishing.
