At first glance, this fairytale of a home looks right at home in a Hansel and Gretel story, with features like intricate brick-and-stone cladding and a peek-a-boo dormer. Mullioned windows, lush landscaping, and an adorable shed add to the story.
Inside is a bright, open interior that deftly mixes modern and vintage styles. The kitchen has light wood cabinets and open glass shelves, stainless-steel appliances, and (here’s the throwback) white subway tile and a checkerboard floor. The dining and living rooms sport dramatic crown molding and ceiling beams, all painted white to blend in while accenting their architecture.
Finishing out the first floor are a main-level bedroom and an
updated bath with radiant heat, whirlpool tub, and a towel warmer. Upstairs is a master bedroom with a beamed ceiling and a large sitting area, and a third bedroom.
The property, on more than three acres, is close to the Sedgewood Club for golf, tennis, and swimming, and is only 55 miles to Midtown.

This home is perfect for the gardener, with more than two acres of private property that includes lots of mature plantings for beauty and privacy. Inside, a vaulted ceiling lends roominess to the large living room, which is bright with windows and cozy with a wood-burning stove. The master bedroom is on the other side of the house from the second bedroom, and has a unique greenhouse window for houseplants.
The eat-in kitchen has room for a full dining table as well as a breakfast bar. There are stainless-steel appliances, including a French-door fridge, and 42 cabinets — that’s right, 42! Sliding doors open to a large, private deck that’s screened with lots of greenery. A hot tub and an above-ground pool add to this paradise of a place.
It’s near the Taconic; golf is minutes away at Mohansic Golf Course; and the Croton Reservoir is just down the road. The Croton-Harmon Metro-North train station to NYC is 20 minutes away and is an express stop; it’s a 45-mile drive to Midtown.
