A 40,000-square-foot mega-mansion in the New Jersey town of Cinnaminson hit the market last month for a whopping $24,950,000, a record-setting asking price for the area. Located at 2801 Riverton Road, about 30 minutes from Philadelphia, the home has been under construction for the last five years and is nearly complete. According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, the property belongs to the former husband-and-wife leaders of Tabula Rasa HealthCare, whose board ousted the couple from the company earlier this year.

In 2018, 6sqft reported that the 50,000-square-foot compound on four acres at 14 Lake Shore Road in Greenwood Lake, N.Y., owned by former Yankee shortstop and Hall of Famer Derek Jeter, was on the market for $14.75 million. The baseball star reportedly purchased the property, known as Tiedemann Castle after its previous owners, for $425,000 in around 2003. The last 15 years have been spent renovating the “castle.” The Wall Street Journal reports that the property, which has been on and off the market for several years, will be heading to the auction block on December 15, with a minimum bid of $6.5 million. The property has a familiar connection for Jeter: His grandfather, Sonny Connors, was raised there as the adopted son of John and Julia Tiedemann, who had purchased the 1903 estate in 1952.

A historic 160-year-old home in a woodsy, waterfront Long Island village is for sale. Located at 381 West Neck Road in Lloyd Harbor, the Charles Homer Davis House, named after the New York City businessman who built it, was constructed in the 1860s in the Second Empire architectural style. Now asking $2,795,000, the remarkably intact clapboard-clad home rises two and a half stories and features a truncated tower, wrap-around porch, and mansard roof.

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.

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.

This estate in quaint St. James, NY–located in Suffolk County on the north shore of Long Island overlooking Stony Brook Harbor–is indeed, as the listing describes it, a piece of architectural history. Built in 1895 by famed and scandalous architect Stanford White of McKim, Mead and White (the firm who penned such icons as the Washington Square Arch and the former Pennsylvania Station in Manhattan), the rambling New England-style 16-bedroom estate spans 8,000 square feet and sits on 3.75 acres. Though it calls to mind a time long past, the home’s historic charm is more literal than most; it will likely take substantial effort beyond its $1.5 million ask to make it the 21st-century residence it undoubtedly could be.

With a 10,442-square-foot interior, 50 Crows Nest Road–known more casually as Crows Nest–in the Westchester County village of Bronxville, NY seems worth its $3.5 million ask (recently reduced from $4.4 million) on that information alone. This 1849 Gothic Revival manor house was built of local stone and sits on 1.3 acres of hilltop land–with the Manhattan skyline visible in the distance. It’s a suburban mansion rich with well-preserved dramatic flourishes, with modern infrastructure and design added to make it a 21st-century family home.
