A well-preserved mid-century prefab home in New York designed by prolific architect Frank Lloyd Wright hit the market this week. Surrounded by woods in the Hudson Valley hamlet of Blauvelt, the “Socrates Zaferiou House” was designed by Wright in a variation of his trademark Usonian style. Asking $1,525,000, the single-family home features a flat roof, L-shaped open floor plan, asymmetrical forms, and large windows to bring the outside in.

Set on nearly nine verdant acres in Sullivan County, this unique circa 1820 farmhouse incorporates its history with elements of modern design so beautifully that it has been featured in Architectural Digest and Dwell magazine, the latter of which called it “a living laboratory for how to bring the vernacular past into the present.” Known as Floating Farmhouse, the 3,400-square-foot Catskills home and barn sit at the edge of a swimming creek with a waterfall. Among its star features is a covered porch that appears to hover above the water. Asking $2,875,000, the home is available for the first time since a four-year rebuilding process by acclaimed designer Tom Givone created its current stunning form.

Located in the heart of historic Prospect Heights, 275 Park Place is the kind of four-story, two-family brownstone designers’ dreams are made of. Consisting of an upper triplex and a garden-level one-bedroom apartment, the pristine late-19th-century home is beyond turn-key. With a renovation–it was featured in New York magazine–helmed by noted architect Elizabeth Roberts, every bit of infrastructure was replaced, while retaining its stunning original details. Asking $4,500,000, the property also boasts the unique extra-long lot only found in a few Brooklyn neighborhoods, giving it a 90-foot back garden with two terraces above.

While we may not yet have reached the days of “last chance for upstate under $1 million,” charming and chic getaways in the Catskills and Hudson Valley region are as hot as it gets. Some homes in the region have more than location going for them, and this adorable 1870s Gothic farmhouse is definitely one of those. With a thoroughly modern renovation by an artist resident and plenty of historic charm, the Wappingers Falls farmhouse, asking $850,000, comes with two acres, a basement/ground floor apartment with a separate entrance, and a rustic red barn.
