A unique industrial loft in a former 20th-century bank building has hit the market in the Westchester village of Dobbs Ferry. The home, where “Tribeca meets Main Street USA,” as the listing describes, was formerly the Greensburgh Savings Bank and has been converted into a one-of-a-kind townhouse. Asking $1.899 million, the four-bedroom home at 81 Main Street measures over 6,300 square feet, has a private backyard, and features remnants of its past life, like a bank vault and super tall ceilings.

Known as the Edersheim Residence, this Westchester home was built in 1958, but in the 1980s, owners Maurits and Claire Edersheim asked famed architect Paul Rudolph (who had renovated their Manhattan apartment in 1970) to completely revamp the residence. Rudolph added a new front facade, a trademark sunken living room, skylights, a guest house, indoor and outdoor pools, a covered porch, and much more. According to Galerie, the most recent owners retained all of Rudolph’s modernist details but worked with the Paul Rudolph Foundation on a modernization that made the home nearly net-zero. They’ve now listed the stunner for $5.6 million.

This enchanting Tudor home in the Westchester town of Larchmont looks like something straight out of a fairytale, from its storybook facade to incredible architectural details like beamed and vaulted ceilings, arched stained-glass windows, and tons of moody work.

Not only does this Westchester county home have a unique Mediterranean style, but it sits on almost a full acre with a grandfathered private tennis court, something that’s no longer allowed in this submarket. Located in the centrally located Murray Hill Estate section of Scarsdale, the home spans just under 4,000 square feet and has seven bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms, and a beautiful courtyard that’ll make you think you’re in Tuscany.

It’s hard to know where to start with this incredible Westchester county mansion. Situated on the Manor Park and Beach in Larchmont, the Tudor-style home has a unique quadrangle shape with a huge interior courtyard. When it was built in 1901, it was the carriage house for the Crocker Estate, and from 1955 to 1996, it was home to New York Times drama critic Walter Kerr and “Please Don’t Eat the Daisies” playwright Jean Kerr. During the 1920s, it’s owner salvaged 35 truckloads of architectural materials from the demolished Vanderbilt Mansion, and these pieces, like the two-story fireplace, are perfectly preserved. Recently listed for $5,850,000, this waterfront “castle” is truly a property that you need to see to believe.

Westchester’s largest privately owned property is now also the county’s most expensive listing. Stonewall Farm, an equestrian estate situated on 740 acres, has just hit the market for $100 million. The property—which is located in Granite Springs, about an hour from the Belmont Park racetrack—is owned by Calvin Klein co-founder Barry Schwartz and his wife Sheryl, who purchased the first 673 acres for $3.25 million in 1979. The sprawling estate has a 40-stall barn, two 24-stall barns, hayfields, apple orchards, professional racing facilities, and riding trails.

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.

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.

With a 10,442-square-foot interior, 50 Crows Nest Road–known more casually as Crows Nest–in the Westchester County village of Bronxville, NY seems worth its $3.5 million ask (recently reduced from $4.4 million) on that information alone. This 1849 Gothic Revival manor house was built of local stone and sits on 1.3 acres of hilltop land–with the Manhattan skyline visible in the distance. It’s a suburban mansion rich with well-preserved dramatic flourishes, with modern infrastructure and design added to make it a 21st-century family home.

You wouldn’t be able to tell from looking at this unassuming Tarrytown home that it’s actually a mash-up of historical structures, though the remaining steeple provides a little clue about its past. The current kitchen and dining area was once a carriage house, the living room once served as the town’s general store and post office, and the parlor room was a one-room schoolhouse in the 1700s. The three structures were fused together in 1900 to create what is now 13 Heritage Hill Road. Spanning nearly 2,500 square feet, the three-bedroom residence is on the market for $950,000.

Even in the Westchester County village of Dobbs Ferry, NY, the 4.2 acre Cricket Hill estate seems a world removed from modern life 20 miles away in New York City. The 6,000-square-foot stone and shingle country house is both characterful and updated for modern living, but the enchanted grounds, including a terraced walled garden, free-form pool and grape arbor, appear unaltered by time.
