If here in Ukraine the most common type of countryside weekend housing is a dacha, then in the US this niche is occupied by farmhouses. And this charming cottage an hour’s drive from New York is a prime example of such living. The white shingle facade with shutters and porch looks as American as possible and even cinematic. The interiors also retain traditional country charm with antique hardwood floors, wallpapers, and classic furnishings. Such a cozy country nest!
