Built in 1957, this 2,000-square-foot lakeside home in South Salem, New York, has since been renovated and updated, maintaining its many midcentury elements.

Floor-to-ceiling windows, double-height spaces, and a breezy floorplan characterize the post-and-beam, with two bedrooms and two baths providing private accommodations.

Vaulted ceilings soar toward Truesdale Lake, framing gorgeous views and allowing natural light to flood the interiors. Wood paneling adds even more warmth to the split-level residence, which also features hardwood floors, a brick-lined entertainment nook with fireplace, and a gallery-cum-study that doubles as an observation deck.

This balcony also extends along the length of the master bedroom, while a stone patio, landscaped grounds, and a beachfront lawn round out the outdoor areas. There’s even a tiny boathouse fabricated in the style of the main house that can be used as a studio, “cabin,” or storage.

Located at 9 Truesdale Lake Drive, the 1.4-acre property in Westchester county is offered at $1.2 million. Have a look.
