For a true escape, search no further than this country home at 52 Lake Road in Katonah. Located an hour north of New York City, this private retreat featuring elegant architectural details sits on more than 2.5 acres and overlooks a reservoir. A paneled study with fireplace, separate entrance, and main-level suite provide sophistication. A chef’s kitchen with a walk-in pantry, butler’s pantry, and banquet-sized dining room is an epicurean delight. A separate guest wing, with two bedrooms, living room, and full bath, is perfect for entertaining.

For the same list price, consider a classic five-bedroom center-hall Colonial on three acres at 23 Kitchawan Road in Pound Ridge. The center of the home is a vaulted ceiling and raised-hearth gas fireplace, with sliding glass doors to an expansive deck, graciously appropriate for everyday living and entertaining. A master en-suite bath, three more bedrooms, and a hall bath complete the second level. A lower level is suitable for an au pair or overnight guests.
