The renovated master bath has a Palladian window overlooking the backyard and a complementary arch over the combined tub and shower. A double window above the tub adds even more light to the room, which has ceramic tile flooring, a ceramic tile tub and shower surround, and a granite sink.

Two additional bedrooms on this level each have a closet and two windows. These two rooms share a renovated hall bath with ceramic tile flooring and a ceramic tile tub and shower surround.

The upper level also has a large laundry room with ceramic tile flooring, a window and an oversized linen closet.

The finished lower level has ceramic tile flooring throughout and a separate side entrance along with the entrance from within the house, so it easily could function as an in-law or au-pair suite. This level has a living room or recreation room, a separate room with windows on each end and a wide, double-door closet, and a renovated full bath with an oversized shower. In addition, there are a fully equipped kitchenette with space for small dining table, closets and another laundry room with plenty of storage space.

While this Palisades farmhouse has a charming exterior, it also appears much smaller than the reality of the interior rooms. High ceilings and myriad windows add to the sense of space in this home and allow light to filter throughout the rooms on a sunny day.
