The Quintessential Country House in Cortlandt Manor, $700K

Westchester County is swimming in quintessential country estates, but this Cortlandt Manor lake cottage might be the prettiest one of all…

And, it doesn’t even break the one-million-dollar mark. Practically a bargain! Still, it looks a million bucks thanks to vaulted ceilings and big picture windows.

Built in the late 1930s, this “simple” country cottage includes nearly 3,000 square feet, three bedrooms, four full baths, mix of hardwood and stone floors, fully modern kitchen with granite counter tops, built-ins, double French doors, and country-chic details galore.

Upstairs is the master en suite with cathedral ceilings, fireplace, study/library, and double doors. We could get accustomed to waking up here…
