Earlier this year, the New York Times called Wyckoff, New Jersey “a peaceful suburb with a sense of community,” and noted that the Bergen County town has been seeing “an influx of young families, who value its small-town atmosphere and relatively low taxes.” This Wyckoff property may not be a starter home, but its $3,950,000 price tag gets you a piece of history set on four acres. The main residence, formerly known as the Halstead House, was built in 1779 and has been perfectly preserved over the years. There’s also a renovated barn, a guest cottage, and a pool, all set against a beautiful pond.

If townhouses were students, this Cobble Hill home would definitely be the teacher’s pet. Unlike most townhouses anywhere in New York City, it has a 25-foot wide adjacent lot that’s used as gated parking, as well as 3,500 square feet of outdoor space that looks like it could be right out of a Napa Valley vineyard. The $12,750,000 house is currently configured as an owner’s triplex and an income-generating garden-level apartment, though it could easily be transformed into a grand, single-family residence.

Legendary 60 Minutes news correspondent Morley Safer was on the show for more than four decades, and during most of that time, he split his time between NYC and this gorgeous, seven-acre estate in Chester, Connecticut. The property includes the main stone house built in 1908, a cozy writer’s studio, a heated pool and gazebo, and a 19th-century barn. Safer passed away in 2016, and his wife Jane Fearer is now selling the estate for the first time in 30 years. It’s asking $1,450,000.

Cool Listings, Park Slope

This three-bedroom condo has much of what you’d expect from a home within a Park Slope brownstone, but it’s also got a couple of tricks up its sleeve. First, the lower level on the garden floor retains the home’s original brick arches, which run the entire length of the space. And then, the gorgeous rear garden was designed by Future Green Studio, who also worked on projects at The Met, Nowadays, and the Brooklyn Children’s Museum. Located at 134 Berkeley Place, the home is asking $2,575,000.
