What is the Dream Home: Penthouse Edition?
For the third year, Westchester Magazine is spearheading a Dream Home project. Working with area builders, designers and vendors, the magazine has helped to create luxurious homes in Armonk, at Hudson Harbor in Tarrytown and now a fabulous 5,400 sq. ft. penthouse at The Residences at The Ritz-Carlton, Westchester. Tours of the completed, furnished Penthouse are open to the public.
