Tuxedo Park is probably best known on the surface as the place where the tuxedo got its name, but the reason that this style landed here from English nobility is that this upstate gated community was home to Gilded Age mansions and their wealthy, high-society residents. Today, most of these incredible homes remain, including this one at 84 East Lake Road. In fact, the monolithic stone lake house was built for Pierre Lorillard, heir to the Lorillard Tobacco Company and founder of Tuxedo Park. Currently listed for $4,900,000, the incredible estate sits on four-and-a-half acres and boasts a grand oval living room with 24-foot ceilings, several stone outbuildings, a floating dock, barn, carriage trails, and more.
