Okay, admittedly, this Peekskill Victorian is a little far south (Westchester County) to be called a “country” house, but sometimes it’s worth it to bend even our own self-imposed rules every now and again. Especially when a house looks like this one. Cool details inside (woodwork) and outside (two-story tiny private balcony).
It’s also a half-mile from the Peekskill Metro-North station as well as the river, and it’s within walking distance to a bunch of places in town, so kicking it car-free seems fairly easy.
Besides, even if it’s not right in the country, it’s still this close to the country. See how close?
