Maybe it’s all The Crown episodes we’ve been binge-watching, but we’re feeling like an upscale country cottage is what we need right now. While the $850,000 price tag makes these two homes more fit for commoners (Westchester commoners, that is) than Her Majesty, a little TLC could turn either of these properties into stunners. The four-bedroom Chappaqua home is a gracious Colonial, with quaint touches like a slate-floored entrance foyer, hardwoods, and a three-season porch. Nestled at the end of a cul-de-sac in the Lawrence Farms East area, it offers great privacy yet is close to town. Buyers may find vintage fatigue in the kitchen, however, which would require a gut overhaul for all but the most ardent old-home enthusiasts. Similarly, in Armonk, a kitchen reno would help bring modern sparkle to a unique home, the circa-1900 Coman Hill Schoolhouse, which was expanded by a previous owner in the 1970s and ’80s. A mostly stone exterior, with sweet pink-wood trim, gives way to historic flourishes, including six-inch oak flooring, wood ceiling beams (from the woods on the property), and a stone fireplace in the living room. Upstairs sleeping lofts and a lower-level wood shop add a cabin-y vibe to the home’s overall Arts-and-Crafts styling. While these homes won’t appeal to all buyers, those seeking character and charm will likely fall hard.
