Westchester | 368 Pine Brook Road, Bedford
A five-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath, 4,600-square-foot house built in 1986 and renovated in 1992, with a two-story entrance, an open living room and a family room with fireplaces, an eat-in kitchen, an office, a finished lower level and basement storage space, central vacuum and air-conditioning, a backyard deck, an attached two-car garage and a koi pond, on 5.04 acres.

Well-maintained and in move-in condition, the house has large rooms with lots of natural light and plenty of closets. Recently updated bathrooms add to the fresh look of the house. A lower-level bedroom and bath make a perfect guest or au pair suite.
Flimsy closet and interior doors detract from the otherwise stylish décor. The koi pond might be of concern to those with young children.
