In the quiet Westchester county village of Larchmont, this five-bedroom home sits on nearly two scenic acres and boasts a cascading waterfall on the property which inspired its nickname: The Waterfall House. Originally built in 1910, the residence was redesigned and renovated by architect Imrey Culbert in collaboration with the current owner, the listing tells us. On the inside, natural materials and architectural elements echo the nature outdoors while large windows throughout amplify the views. It’s now on the market seeking $2.55 million.

175 Grand Street, cool listings, mamaroneck, skinny house

It’s easy to see that the little red house at 175 Grand Street in Mamaroneck, NY, is no ordinary home just by looking: At a mere 10 feet wide, the Skinny House stands out for its size alone. As 6sqft previously reported, this unique dwelling, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, has quite a tale to tell. The little house on a 12.5-foot lot was built in 1932 by Nathan T. Seely, one of New York’s first African American builders. Its story is one of ingenuity and skill, and it provided for its creator during hard times. In need of a new chapter and some real TLC, the house is on the market–for only the second time since its construction–for $275,000.

1411 Flagler Drive, Mamaroneck, Houlihan Lawrence, spanish Mediterranean mansion

This home looks better suited for Europe or California, but it’s located just north of Manhattan in the Westchester suburb of Mamaroneck. The Spanish Mediterranean manse was built in 1926 and is situated on a half-acre of land right along the water. Stunning views from the waterfront lawn and private dock look out toward Larchmont Harbor, the Long Island Sound, and the distant Manhattan skyline. Inside, it’s like an escape to a European or Hollywood retreat–take your pick–with incredible details that include Spanish tile floors imported from Seville.

Architect Stephen Moser, treehouse-inspired home, Mamaroneck Residence, renovated ranch, 1950s ranch, Mamaroneck, O’Brien Carpentry,

Architect Stephen Moser gained thirty years worth of experience by working in contemporary luxury projects, including a hotel/spa in Beirut and private residences in New York and London, as well as by creating fashion boutiques in Asia for the likes of Chanel and Armani. He recently set up his own practice, translating that experience into refined homes like the Mamaroneck Residence. This family home is actually a beautifully renovated 1950s ranch that features stylish interiors, custom-made wooden furniture, an indoor pool, and even a treehouse, which served as the inspiration for the whole redesign of the house.
