We’re going to venture out to the countryside today to visit a classic Dutch Colonial home in historic Quaker Hill, a hamlet in Pawling, NY. If you’re looking for the kind of privacy that can only come from being on a 1.81-acre lot, along with easy access to the city, it doesn’t get much better than this. The four-bedroom home offers original details like hardwood floors and exposed beams, along with sprawling countryside views and a pool house. And, are you sitting down? It’s only $675,000. Boy, things sure are different outside the city.
A definite standout in this 1,842-square-foot home is the elegant bead-board ceilings. You’ll see them as soon as you walk into the well-lit living room, which features lots of light thanks to large windows offering multiple exposures. The ceilings extend to an adjacent living room connected to the dining room, which has French door access to the outside.
There’s a crisp white updated chef’s kitchen with access to the deck. Meanwhile, the bedrooms are all on the upper two levels.
Outside, the professionally landscaped yard features a stone patio and path that leads to the organically shaped pool.
Pawling is a small town in the foothills of the Berkshires, and was actually named for the daughter of Henry Beekman. The close community is marked by historic homes, quaint shops and restaurants, and friendly neighbors. It’s also close to the city via interstate and Metro-North.
