A Fieldstone House with a Flagstone Patio

Just under $2 million can get you a French Norman-style house with a backyard pool in Spring Valley. The aesthetic of the arched front door is echoed throughout the main floor with deep arched entryways with raised inset panels. A recently-renovated chef’s kitchen with Viking appliances and marble backsplash leads to a breakfast room with French doors opening onto the backyard. A large formal dining room features a bay window, which also creates a built-in seating and shelving unit in the lower level family room. All three bedrooms on the upper level have double exposure to natural light.
