WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- With the Northeast firmly in winter's grasp, even leaving the house can seem like a daunting task. Thankfully for families in these spectacular area homes, winter fun doesn't mean having to get in the car. From skating ponds to cozy book nooks, these William Raveis Real Estate listings offer the best of cold weather living.

Located in the tranquil woods of northern Westchester, 30 Briar Lane in Cortlandt Manor offers residents an equal dose of charm and history. Originally built by Morris Michtom, who was inspired by President Theodore Roosevelt to create the iconic Teddy Bear, the 2,000 sq. ft. Tudor-style home is perfect as both a main residence or a weekend getaway. Featuring a large hearth, expansive custom bookcases and traditional wooden accents, the home sits privately on an acre lot. The spacious kitchen and dining area are well-suited for entertaining, while the home's large windows offer the perfect place to safely view winter's wrath.

When cabin fever sets in, William Raveis' listing at 2 Day Road in Armonk offers the perfect solution. Sitting on over three acres of land, the home boasts seemingly limitless space for snowball fights and exploration. The clapboard house also sits alongside a lake perfect for skating, offering hours of outdoor fun. Once inside, warm up by one of the home's several fireplaces or over the kitchen's restaurant-quality range. The basement also holds the perfect cold-weather playground; from pool tables to table tennis, there's never a shortage of ways to pass the time.

Finally, although many people only consider the summer to be beach weather, homeowners at 1 Captains Lane in Rye know that one of the joys of living by the water is experiencing its transformation through all four seasons. Walking distance from the Long Island Sound, the 6 bedroom, 5 bathroom home is the perfect beachside retreat. Residents can stay cozy during even the most bitter nor'easters in the home's high ceiling, windowed rooms. As waves crash less than half a mile away, homeowners are able to relax in spa-like luxury, thanks to a spacious master bedroom and bathroom. During summer months, residents also have access to both a private beach and boat mooring.
