This Sloatsburg Ranch Sits on the Edge of State Parkland: $665K

Today’s home is definitely lake-centric: Part of the Pine Grove association in Ramapo, it comes with access to a sandy beach lake—and it’s within the Seven Lakes region of Harriman State Park.

Built in 1937, the 2,790-square-foot ranch has been updated but retains vintage charm. The exterior is Hamptons-esque cedar shakes accented with red-orange trim.

The front door opens into the living room. It’s got a wood floor, sage-green walls, a built-in bookcase, and a marble-manteled brick fireplace.

The twin glass doors in the living room swing open to access this high-ceilinged family room, which has double French doors onto the back deck. Side glass windows and transoms let in even more light.

Off the family room is this piano room, which also has enough light for houseplants to prosper.

The dining room flows off the family room, too. The blonde wood floor and green walls continue here, as well. There’s a petite, white, built-in china cabinet next to the picture window.

The eat-in kitchen has updated, stainless-steel appliances like a double-drawer, French door fridge. The cabinets are a dark oak, Shaker-style, topped with granite counters.

It’s got a gas range, an undermount sink, and hardwood floors.

A small step off the kitchen leads to this casement-windowed sunroom with creamy brown walls and rust trim. A door from here leads to the yard.

Also off the kitchen is this mudroom/laundry room/bathroom. It’s roomy, with a ceramic tile floor and a bit of storage. The washer and dryer are stacked.

The bathroom has a sliding-glass-doored shower and gray/white tile wainscoting that—if we’re being brutally honest—doesn’t really complement the floor tile.

Four bedrooms are on the main level. The primary bedroom has a double window and a triple window, and hardwood floors.

The rest of the bedrooms are different in size, color scheme, and window shapes.

This one has built-in cabinets and shelving.

And this one has a double casement window and room to roam.

From the green wall and floor tile, to the vintage radiator, to the built-in shelves, this bathroom is a keeper in our opinion. The pedestal sink looks updated, but still fits with the decor. It looks like the bathtub doesn’t match—it’s up to the new owner to live with it, or change it out.

The same vintage vibe happens in the third full bath, only in blue. It’s got a walk-in shower instead of a tub. And the sink is a powerhouse of old-fashioned charm, with chrome legs, a boxy shape, and chrome towel rods on the side.

There’s a back deck and a patio, plus lots of lawn on which to romp. The property measures three-quarters of an acre…but don’t forget all those lakes, either.
