Bike to the Train from this Affordable Harlem Valley Cape Cod, $235K

The list of “pros” is long with this Harlem Valley Cape Cod, starting with location…

…which is less than a half-mile from both Dover Plains hamlet and the Dover Plains Metro-North station. In spite of its proximity to town and public transportation, the property isn’t shoehorned into a densely-populated residential area but, instead, situated on a half-acre lot on dead-end street. That’s a big yard with a view of the rolling hills to the west.

The interior of the fully-renovated 1950s Cape Cod includes 1,790 square feet with a generously-proportioned and open first floor living room/kitchen/dining room. Hardwood floors throughout.

Kitchen is of the galley variety, which can feel cramped, but this one seems fine with stainless steel appliances, quartz counters, and farmhouse sink. A carpeted family room adjoins the kitchen, and the dining area is open to the living room.

All three bedrooms are on the second floor, and we love the built-in features and details like recessed windows, wood trim, and doors.

Choose one of two outdoor gathering areas: The covered porch to the side of the house, and a brand-new back patio perfect for watching the sun set while sipping a glass of wine…

An intriguing nearby point of interest is the Dover Stone Church, which isn’t a church at all, but, in fact, cathedral-like cave and waterfall. It’s essential viewing when in the Harlem Valley.

This looks like an ideal potential starter home to us, given the listing price, and if you’re looking for a family-friend property with a big yard in a commuter location less than 90 minutes from NYC, congratulations. You’ve met your match.
