An enchanting estate in Upstate New York that has 160 acres of land and a residence constructed in 1775 is asking $15,000,000. The property, dubbed White Bridge Farm, is located in Old Chattam, a historic hamlet in Columbia County. In addition to the 18th-century home, which has been renovated but maintains some original detail, the farm includes multiple converted barns, horse stables, and a stunning pool and pool house, all surrounded by a landscape that looks like it was pulled from the pages of a storybook.

Located in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains overlooking the Delaware River Valley, the world’s first Passive House-certified cidery is now open. The Callicoon-based Seminary Hill Orchard & Cidery was designed as a low energy-use structure, with an air-tight thermal envelope, triple pane windows, and photovoltaic solar panels. Designed by River Architects, the structure is not only sustainable but architecturally appealing, flaunting gapped wood siding, interiors clad with reclaimed wood from the pilings of the original Tappan Zee Bridge, and lovely views of the apple orchard.

In 1864, railroad magnate Samuel Sloan Sr. and his wife Margaret commissioned an estate in Garrison, New York to serve as their country home. Originally known as Oulagisket or Lisburne Grange, the 16-acre property consisted of an enormous main house plus beautiful gardens and vistas by renowned landscape architect Fletcher Steele. In fact, some garden “ruins” still exist, as does the iconic swimming pool grotto. Today, the estate consists of a grand, Greek-Revival facade, six bedrooms, an outdoor dining pavilion, and a spa complete with a steam room, sauna, and saltwater hot tub (to name a few amenities). After undergoing a renovation in 2014 that designated the residence a Passive House, it’s now on the market for $11,250,000.

Spanish architect and industrial designer Paul Mayén is perhaps best known for working with Frank Lloyd Wright on the design for Fallingwater, as well as for his modernist furniture designs, many of which are in the permanent collection at MoMA. At WaterRun, a 14+ acre estate in Garrison, New York, all of Mayén’s expertise is on display. The 7,500-square-foot contemporary home employs Wright’s penchant for bringing the outdoors in, and it is full of lighting and built-in furniture personally designed by Mayén. But the home is most famous for its landscape, where you’ll find perennial gardens, pavilions, grottos, obelisks, ponds, winding streams, and even a cascading waterfall.

B-52s lead singer Kate Pierson and her wife, artist Monica Coleman, bought this 6.5-acre Catskills property in the early 2000s, turning it into a retro “love shack.” With a total of 10 guest accommodations, the motel called Kate’s Lazy Meadow is just outside Woodstock, New York. It was, coincidentally, built in 1952, and Pierson and Coleman outfitted the cabins with mid-century furnishings, bright colors, and loads of kitschy decor–all of which is included in the $2,200,000 sale.
