Sometimes, you have to investigate the nooks and crannies to unearth a gem. This farmhouse in northern Westchester County certainly qualifies as one, and we found ourselves pleasantly surprised by both the listing price and the yearly tax amount ($6800/year), both of which are likely to be on the high because Westchester County. As for its nook and cranny? It’s located where the Peekskill Hollow Creek meets Ansville Creek and the Hudson River, just north of Peekskill.
The c.1911 farmhouse is just 1100 square feet in size but features a new renovation completed in 2015, lending it a modern sensibility. Includes an open first floor, three bedrooms and renovated bath on the second floor, wood floors, and kitchen with a row of windows overlooking the back patio (and, oh, what a patio it is). Concerned about space? There’s also a finished attic room that could be an extra bedroom, office, or studio.
The patio is an outside oasis with a hot tub, shower, and space to entertain. Property is fenced-in and comes with a small shed. Located five minutes from Peekskill and one hour from NYC.
