Located in Easton, Connecticut, just 60 miles from NYC, this incredible Tuscan-style villa was built in 1990 by the late Arnie D’Angelo, credited with inventing the idea of the “tea chest” for Bigelow Tea. He created a true entertainer’s paradise, complete with a 500-bottle wine grotto, “Jackson Hole”-themed game room, a “car club” garage complete with a bar and pit crew lounge, and a Mediterranean-style backyard and pool deck. The home, which is nearly 9,000 square feet and sits on three acres, is on the market for $1,725,000.

Less than a block from the Atlantic Avenue Beach, this Bates Masi-designed home is a modernist treasure. Built in 2017, the property consists of a huge main house complete with three outdoor decks, as well as a spacious two-bedroom guest cottage, both of which were designed in the architects’ signature contemporary seaside style.

This Upper East Side townhouse at 17 East 74th Street was built in 1869 in the neo-Federal style. And though it retains this historic pedigree from the street, inside it’s been modernized with opulent finishes and a classicaly elegant style. According to the Post, the home, which is on the market for $18 million, is owned by Sandi Feinberg, widow of the late philanthropist Herbert Feinberg. They bought the five-story house in 1989 for $2.5 million and then spent three years on a renovation that included adding a 46-foot-long saltwater lap pool and hot tub on the lower level, as well as spiffing up the garden and roof deck.
