LM Guest House, Desai Chia Architecture, duchess 

While many vacation homes are the result of an elaborate design process and lengthy construction, this house located in rural New York was designed and then built using prefabricated elements in just a couple of days. The U.S. firm Desai Chia Architecture is responsible for the single-story rectilinear space, also known as LM Guest House.

Currently on the market for $525,000, 45 Marshall Road is about the most textbook example of an uncomplicated country home that we’ve seen in a while.

The Mission House, upstate New york, 320 Long Hill Road

Have you spent the summer dreaming about where you want to escape to in upstate New York? This listing won’t make you feel any better.

The house itself is gorgeous, with stunning landscaping, modern design, and tons of space. Get this: the house covers 4,000 square feet, with an additional 2,400 square feet of decks. Of course, it isn’t cheap, but you’ll still get more bang for your buck up here than down in Manhattan—for the whole mansion, the asking price is $1.4 million, cheaper than many NYC apartments. (And keep reading for a way to stay here without forking over all that cash.)

With fall inching closer, thoughts of sitting fireside with a cup of tea have started to fill our heads. And while the city is a splendid place in the autumn, nothing beats taking in the country air and the crunch of leaves beneath ones feet.

Now up for auction is this perfect fall escape (or full time home)—an incredible property located in the town of Amenia in Dutchess County. The sprawling 17-acre property, a.k.a. Meri-Mac Farm, comes with four bedrooms, 8,500-square-foot farmhouse, a three-stall stable, a horse pasture, pool, poolhouse and a separate guest house with two-bedrooms. Another fun bonus? You can claim one degree of Kevin Bacon—and Meryl Streep—who live nearby.
