Wish List House #3: Westchester County Mid-Century House, $789K

westchester county mid century house

Is it possible to fall in love with a house based on the kitchen alone? If so, we’ve been in love dozens of times, and now, we can add this Westchester County Mid-Century house to the ever-growing list.

Built in the mid-1950s, this 2 bed/2 bath home has all the things we love about a Mid-Mod: Open floor plan, copious windows to bring the outside inside, floating staircase, wood paneling, gigantic fireplace, and, especially in this case, one snazzy retro kitchen that’s been well preserved.

The floors need updating, but DO NOT TOUCH THAT SEAFOAM CABINETRY.

This house was designed and lived in by an architect from Harrison & Abramovitz (ever been to the Egg in Albany? This firm designed that, too), so you can add “architecturally-designed” to this home’s mid-mod street cred.

Includes an acre of land situated in Ardsley, about 20 minutes north of Yonkers and less than an hour from mid-town Manhattan.

180 Heatherdell Road, Ardsley (Sotheby’s)
