Dreamy midcentury lake house offers a scenic getaway outside NYC

So green and gorgeous

Scheming for a midcentury lake house getaway? Lucky for you, here’s a brand new listing out of Pound Ridge in Westchester, New York to get those wheels turning even faster. Built in 1957, the 3,820-square-foot three-bedroom appears to have been updated, but no matter. It still retains gorgeous period details like wood-paneled walls and ceilings (that are also beamed), a rustic stone hearth, extensive outdoor-framing glazing, huge open-plan living area with plenty of built-ins, and an exterior clad in wood and brick.

But despite all that, what steals the show is the beautiful backyard lake and the greenery that surrounds it. You get lake views from almost every room, and a screened-in porch makes it even easier to commune with nature. The grounds are nicely manicured, too, so even if you do have to share the lake with your neighbors, you’ve still got plenty to enjoy on your very own property.

A spacious kitchen and lower level den are great for simply kicking back, or entertaining a couple of friends. Located at 15 Sherwood Road just 46 miles from Manhattan, the home can be yours for a cool $1,200,000.
