Westchester | 234 Westchester Ave., Pound Ridge, N.Y.

A two-bedroom, two-bath, 1,805-square-foot home built in 1940, with a living room that has a lavish stone fireplace and floor-to-ceiling windows, a kitchen with a breakfast nook, a cozy formal dining room, a bright family room with bay windows facing the yard, a basement with a gym, a breezeway to a two-car heated garage, a large bluestone patio, a built-in firepit, a heated in-ground gunite pool and a large converted barn with living space, on 2.36 acres. Bonnie Stein, Julia B Fee Sotheby’s International Realty, 914-262-0915,


Taxes: $20,326 a year


The outdoor living spaces are plentiful. There is town approval for a second floor in the house. The barn is impressive, with six garage bays that can hold up to 10 cars and a functional loft with living.


The house interior is lackluster compared with the barn. The primary bedroom is small and lacks an en suite bathroom.
