Are you a fan of the classics? Then these elegant Colonial abodes in Millwood and White Plains will be right up your alley.

Colonial-style homes — especially those dating back to the mid-1800s — are one of the most popular architectural styles in the country. They are recognizable by their rectangular shape, easy-to-modify style, and simple floor plan. For homes that are still in their original forms, exterior symmetry is a hallmark of a classic Colonial. These multiple variations of the Colonial are on the market in Westchester, yet no matter which iteration they follow, they exude that timeless class.

There is an extra level of quaint added to this Colonial thanks to its location on a double cul-de-sac.

The exterior of the house has also received a recent refresh, including a new driveway, fresh coat of paint, and improved stone walls.
