Although half the size, this colonial in Palisades is a high-end commuter’s dream. Minutes to the new Tappan Zee Bridge, this family home sits in a beautiful cul-de-sac in prestigious Sneden’s Pointe. The elegant, open floor plan, combined with the kitchen’s Wolf appliances and Sub-Zero fridge, encourages large gatherings. No detail is forgotten: custom touches like coffered ceilings, wainscoting, and chair rail abound. A home gym and theater room ensure activity, while a Gunite pool brings the party outside in the warmer months — the property’s smaller footprint means less maintenance, more fun!
