A charming mud room entry welcomes you into this warm country home. A vintage stone tile kitchen floor gives the right amount of contrast to the quartz countertops and subway tile backsplash. The kitchen has a pass through into the dining room which showcases built-in corner display cabinets. Hardwood floors run throughout the rest of the house. The spacious living room has a wood burning fireplace and French doors showcasing the all-season room with beadboard ceiling, slate tile floor and opens to the back porch. Up the crafted staircase to the six bedrooms, one of which is currently being used a dressing room with a sink. Plumbing is in place to create an ensuite master bath. The architectural details of the home set this apart from the standard square bedrooms.

The covered back porch overlooks the level one acre lot. A trellis highlights a stone patio area with a tree swing. Thoughtful landscape design runs throughout the property with mature trees for privacy. 

Called the “Gateway of the Hudson River Valley”, Cortlandt is the location of Bear Mountain Bridge spanning the Hudson on the town’s northwestern corner. State Routes 9, 9A, 6, 202, and 35 connect Cortlandt to the Taconic Parkway and to Westchester’s extensive network of major highways. Manhattan is 45 miles away, 48 minutes via express train from the Croton-Harmon station of Metro North. Rail service is also available at the Cortlandt Station.

The privacy of the property is contrasted by the ease of the location. Get to NYC in approximately an hour while stopping in to the Cortlandt Farm Market, a garden center and fruit and vegetable market. Stop by Hemlock Farm for fresh produce and farm raised meat and dairy products. Centrally located close to Route 6 for all shopping needs. There is no shortage of nightlife in nearby Peekskill. Enjoy the Peekskill Brewery, stroll along the waterfront park, see a show in the Paramount Theater originally opened on 1930. There is no shortage of hiking trails from Yorktown’s Turkey Mountain to the many trails throughout Bear Mountain.
