While it’s frowned upon to judge a book by its cover, it remains completely acceptable to gawk at a home with a polished and prim exterior. Whether they were built over a century ago and are standing the test of time or were designed by one of the top architects working in the county today, these homes will surely have you pulling up Zillow after your drive-by.
This new construction is as functional as it is visually stunning. With a strong architectural design that incorporates indoor and outdoor living, this house flows gracefully with large windows and contemporary finishes. Buyers will love the pristine in-ground pool, theater room, and cozy balconies — with the added benefit of being able to customize aspects of the house before its completion this spring.

In the historic Captain Merritt’s Hill neighborhood (the location of the famed house from the movie Ragtime), this stunning piece of history stands tall. Built in 1910 by Fred Himrod, heir to his father’s asthma-remedy fortune and gold mine, the Victorian marvel has triumphantly stood the test of time. Featuring a porte cochere, stained-glass window, pocket doors, tower, and sleeping porch, buyers will love the preservation of the home’s classic hallmarks and the integration of modern-day features.

Truly one of a kind, this house was designed by esteemed architect Ken Andersen of Granoff Architects — the firm behind Watermark Pointe in New Rochelle and the Pound Ridge Golf Club — and dazzles with everything from a chef’s kitchen to the lush lawn. A 1,500-bottle wine cellar is tucked away in the basement, and if that wasn’t enough to throw a good party, the house is also furnished with a movie theater, outdoor fireplace on the porch, and an in-ground Wagner pool and spa.
