One of the most distinctive homes in the Hudson Valley is back on the market. Surrounded by nearly 46 acres with views of the Catskills, the “Sleeve House” is an ultra-contemporary home created as two long volumes, a smaller one “sleeved” into a larger one, which allows for separate public and private spaces. Designed by Adam Dayem’s Actual/Office Architects, the three-bedroom home sits on a sloped hill and is wrapped in charred wood of varying thickness, a nod to the rural area’s historic barns and agricultural buildings. 6sqft first wrote about this home when it was listed for $2,100,000 in 2017. Now it’s available again, this time for $2,275,000. If you’re loving the interior design of this home, we’ve sourced a few key pieces that are identical or similar to the items in the listing photos.

Asking $65,000,000, the 12,000-square-foot, seven-story Renaissance Revival-style townhouse at 25 Riverside Drive (h/t WSJ) on Manhattan’s Upper West Side harkens back to the city’s Gilded Age, when Riverside Park was lined with single-family mansions. Unmistakeable from the outside, the palatial corner property with rounded facades of limestone and brick has breathtaking river and palisades views from three exposures, 70 windows, and a rooftop conservatory. Built in the 1890s, this unique home was designed by prominent architect C.P.H. Gilbert for American Book Company editor-in-chief Herbert Horace Vail.

This 25-foot-wide townhouse at 330 Convent Avenue in the landmarked Hamilton Heights historic district has lost none of its original mansion grandeur.

Well maintained and updated, the home, now asking $6,250,000, features a landscaped private backyard, a gated private garden entrance to a separate studio apartment, 11-foot ceilings, and original details.

In 2016, 6sqft featured the impossibly ornate and enormous 1900s mansion for sale at 1305 Albemarle Road. Set among the Prospect Park South neighborhood’s stately free-standing Victorians, the home was a standout; in addition to its 11,000-square-foot interior, its two-story portico with massive fluted columns, jaw-dropping original interiors including a fabulous top-floor ballroom–and the fact that it shares a street with Michele Williams’ house–all generated quite a buzz. The home, asking $3,000,000, sold in less than a day. After a stem-to-stern renovation of epic proportions, the historic city mansion is back on the market, this time for an equally epic $12,950,000.
