    Attention to Detail

    The entrance to this 6,606-square-foot, stone and shingle home in Pound Ridge is accented by sophisticated architectural detail and meticulous landscaping, suggesting to homebuyers that this is an upscale, well-tended home.


    Country Comfort

    Anchoring your front entrance with seating, as the homeowners did at this 8,000-square-foot colonial farmhouse in North Salem, lets visitors know this is a home where people like to gather. And the stars and stripes add an all-American, patriotic touch.

    Waterfront Welcome

    Don’t forget about the back entrance!  Just because most of your guests and potential homebuyers arrive by car to enter through the front door, with a fabulous property to explore, they’ll surely be approaching your home from all directions. The pretty dock that leads to this Blue Heron Lake modern estate compels sailors and paddlers to come take a look!
