Westchester | 504 Millwood Road, Mount Kisco, N.Y.

A four-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath, 3,182-square-foot house converted in 1910 from an 18th-century barn, with period details that include wide-planked floors, open-beamed ceilings and built-in cabinets; a sitting room with a wood-pellet stove; formal living and dining rooms with fireplaces; a breakfast area; a laundry/mudroom area; an indoor gardening space; a walk-up attic; a slate patio; and a detached one-bedroom, one-bath rental cottage on 1.4 acres. Cindy Glynn, Compass, 914-523-6163;


$25,019 a year


The house has a cozy, Old World charm, and the lot is sizable. The bedrooms are fairly large and bright. The cottage provides rental income.


Ceilings on the first level are low. There is no central air-conditioning. The kitchen and baths could use updating, and the dilapidated detached two-car garage needs replacement.

Given the fast pace of the current market, some properties may no longer be available at the time of publication.
