Location: Palisades, New York
This 1874 home in Palisades, New York, is that rare find that preserves just the right amount of period detailing and combines it with contemporary yet appropriate updates to create a residence that feels homey but also special.
Hardwood floors, paneling, crown molding, historic light fixtures, and generously proportioned rooms like formal sitting and dining rooms signal its past, while walls of built-in bookshelves and the elegantly renovated eat-in kitchen (with Viking appliances, natch), among other renovations, elevate the cottage for modern living.
Up the wooden staircase are three large bedrooms with wide-plank flooring and plenty of windows, two tile bathrooms (for a total of three), sitting area, and access to a potential-filled walkup attic. A family room and screened porch complete the communal spaces on the first floor, while a garden and detached two-car garage round out the property. Located at 18 Closter Road, it’s offered at $749,000.
