A converted barn in Westchester County that sits on three acres of land and boasts gardens, orchards, and an in-ground pool has hit the market for $1.35 million. Located in the hamlet of Hartsdale, which is roughly 20 miles from New York City, the property, known as Hillbrook Farm, offers the best of both worlds: sprawling, private green space and easy access to restaurants, retail, and public transit.

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.

Located in Pound Ridge, a quaint town in northeastern Westchester just an hour’s drive from NYC, this sprawling estate set on nearly six acres is asking $1,250,000 (h/t Curbed). The New York Times wrote of Pound Ridge’s “wooded slopes, streams and lakes and 19th-century stone walls,” all of which create a “bucolic feel” that this home at 39 Old Snake Hill Road also embodies. Originally an 1860s barn, the listing tells us that the property was converted by Vito Fosella, a student of Frank Lloyd Wright, into a charming mid-century residence “ideal for weekend or year-round living.”

This 11,570-square-foot estate is set on two acres within the grounds of the Westchester Country Club, overlooking the Club’s South Golf Course. Built in 1929 in the Cotswold Tudor Revival style, the stately residence has a long list of features to match its $7.995 million asking price, including a stunning pool and pool house, a wine cellar and tasting room, a golf simulator (to perfect your chops before you hit the course), and more.
Not only is Moby a singer/songwriter, DJ, photographer, vegan restauranteur, and animal rights activist, but he also has an eye for unique real estate. He formerly owned a whimsical replica castle in LA, and in March he dropped $1.24 million on a midcentury-modern stunner in Pound Ridge to be near his childhood home in Darien, Connecticut. Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright-disciple David Henken in 1956, the Westchester home has jaw-dropping mahogany interiors, floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the woods and a quaint garden, and a swimming pool. But after realizing that he’s still spending most of his time on the west coast, he re-listed the property for $1.3 million, according to Curbed. And in true Moby fashion, he took to Instagram to say that he’ll be donating proceeds from the sale to animal rights causes and progressive political candidates.
Prepare to be stunned by this waterfront mansion that’s just hit the market within commuting distance of New York City. The 35-room Westchester estate, appropriately named “All View” by its original 19th-century owner, sits grandly atop a three-acre peninsula jutting out into the Long Island Sound. The grounds (conceived of by Central Park and Prospect Park designer Frederick Law Olmsted) do not disappoint; neither does the house, which is full of historic details but has also received modern — and a few whimsical — renovations. It now boasts 13 bedrooms, nine wood-burning fireplaces, three kitchens, and a new geothermal heat and air conditioning system. The best part? Every single room offers a view of the water.

Assembly Member Nily Rozic, a Democrat who represents Queens, is expected to introduce a bill that would change the name of a state park named after President Donald Trump. Rozic’s bill would rename the park to honor Heather Heyer, the woman killed last month by a white supremacist in Charlottesville. As BuzzFeed first reported, a similar push was made in both houses of the state legislature and from local members of Congress in 2015 and 2016. Trump donated the 436 acres of land to New York State in 2006 on the condition his name be “prominently displayed.”
Although the marriage between Arthur Miller and Marilyn Monroe didn’t last long, the home where the two held their 1956 wedding certainly stood the test of time. The charming French Country-style home at 122 East Ridge Road in Waccabuc, New York has hit the market for $1.675 million (h/t LLYNC). Sitting on over four acres of land, the home features four bedrooms and five bathrooms. The sprawling pad features a pool and pool house, as well as scenic views of Lake Waccabuc. Last year, the Miller and Monroe’s former NYC pad just off Sutton Place at 444 East 57th Street, hit the market at an asking price of $6.75 million.
Just an hour north of Manhattan along the Hudson River in Irvington, New York sits Strawberry Hill Manor. The Gothic Revival mansion was built in 1850, and if its brooding gables and turrets and crumbling interiors weren’t spooky enough, there’s the fact that the original owner, John Thomas, was standing and admiring his new home when the pitchfork he was holding was struck by lightning, killing him. But if this haunted tale and the fact that the 13,000-square-foot residence is quite the fixer-upper don’t deter you, Curbed tells us that the Manor is for sale for $1,995,000.
Situated on a corner lot in the Lawrence Park neighborhood in Bronxville, the home at 7 Valley Road, currently on the market for $4.2 million, is immediately recognizable by its stone and shingle facade, slate roof, stone turret, and sprawling wraparound porch. Prolific local Gilded Age architect William Augustus Bates designed this remarkable 7,000-square-foot home in the town’s historic district. Completed in 1902, the seven-bedroom house combines the Queen Anne and Shingle styles with masterful turn-of-the-century workmanship that remains timeless today.
