Front view
Front view
This 1821 farmhouse was originally built by James Coutant of the French Huguenot family who founded New Rochelle, NY, in the 17th century.
This is a rare gem only a 29-minute train ride from Manhattan. Convenient to all highways yet with the privacy of a country retreat and the charm of an 1821 farmhouse.

Here's a view from the entrance to the kitchen. The room was completely done over...new cabinets, floor, appliances...four years ago. In doing it over, we wanted to update it without loosing the sense of how it fit in with the rest of the house. There's a lovely, lighted hutch in the corner (can't see it from this shot) which we designed
Here's a different view of the kitchen. There's a lovely, old brick wall that we maintained in the renovation that adds a wonderful charming quality to the room.
