Description: This 60-year-old Cape Cod is modest in size, but the workmanship, setting and condition are all superb. The interior boasts hardwood floors, built-in bookcases and cabinets, a stone fireplace and French doors. The exterior of the house features clapboard siding and a steeply pitched roof.

Where the property really shines is its outdoor space. There's a screened in porch with stone floors that leads out to the patio, and from there you enjoy beautiful views. You see the hillsides and Lake DeForest, a reservoir that provides drinking water to Rockland County, a suburb of New York City, which lies 30 minutes away.

The gardens are lush and extensive: The house sits on 1.6 acres and faces a broad, green front lawn. In the back is a shaded flagstone patio lined with ground cover and hedges. The in-ground pool is shadowed in afternoons. There's perennial flower plantings and a hill that rolls down to the lake.
