This Unassuming New York Cape Has the Most Spectacular 1940s Interior

This Unassuming New York Cape Has the Most Spectacular 1940s Interior

by Elizabeth Finkelstein

Never judge a book by its cover, especially when it comes to old houses. This ca. 1945 Cape Revival, marketed by the lovely team over at Houlihan Lawrence, is cute enough from the outside. But I was absolutely blown away by the magnificent period-perfect interior, dating to my favorite era. Now THAT’S something you don’t see everyday! Here’s hoping the next owner doesn’t change a thing!


59 Beekman Drive, Carmel, NY

1 bed, 2 baths, 1,393 sq.ft.
