A Scarsdale colonial so beautiful even Jay Gatsby would approve.

With soaring columns, spiral staircase, massive closets, and an in-ground pool, all this property is missing is a green light in the distance and its own Daisy Buchanan.

Location: 76 Cushman Rd, Scarsdale

List Price: $3,895,000 | Est. Annual Taxes: $65,913

Description: Originally built in 1925 by W. Stanwood Phillips in Scarsdale’s much-coveted Murray Hill district, this home is an exemplar of the era’s Neoclassical design influences in Westchester’s favored colonial architecture. The design squeezes 5 bedrooms and 5.1 baths (including a master and two suites) into just over 6,000 square feet.
