The homes for sale in Sleep Hollow tend to be very casual as opposed to the more formal homes found in Lake Pointe, on the other side of the river. The houses are constructed of stone, stucco, and siding with wood cladding to add to the informal aesthetic. Large windows are one of the hallmarks of these homes to take advantage of the panoramic views. Many of older one-story cottage style homes have been updated with new roofing, modern HVAC, and giving a cosmetic facelift including new paint, finishes, and cabinets. The newer homes are split-level or two stories built from stacked stone, stucco, and limestone. High ceilings, open living plans, second-floor decks and clean lines are reflective of the more contemporary but casual style.
With such ample acreage, yards are like mini recreation areas filled with native grasses and plants, defined entertainment areas that take advantage living lakeside. Meadow, vegetable and ornamental gardens are also popular and attract butterflies during the spring and summer months. Many have constructed outdoor covered pavilions that have summer kitchens including basins to clean the freshly caught fish, real barbecue pits, and conversational seating areas. As the property gets closer to the shoreline, owners of Sleep Hollow real estate have added things as simple as rowboat tie-ups to full blown docks with storage. Pergolas with stone patios and a fire pit are quite popular for sitting outside in the evening and watching the river flow past.
While living on the lake is the big attraction in Sleepy Hollow, there are several public parks nearby that offer sports fields, playgrounds and league play. Dining is easy when living on the lake.
