The gardens and landscaping around these two Westchester homes are just as showstopping as the properties themselves.
24 Tompkins Rd, Scarsdale | 7 BR, 5.1 BA | 7,250 sq. ft.| 1.44 acres| $71,253 est. taxes
This grand two-lot home in Fox Meadow has plenty of surprises in the interior — most notably, the 13-foot bar in the basement named The Lion’s Den. But there are still wonders to behold outside the house, and for green thumbs and amateur horticulturists, the ornamental garden is the perfect respite. With an additional private courtyard, the capacity for supplementary green space or further entertainment expansion will let the buyer’s creative ideas run wild.

On a sprawling property such as this, in the highly sought-after Sands Mill Estates, the opportunities for luxury are never-ending. The interior has six fireplaces and smart-home technology, while the grounds of the property are nothing short of whimsical. Take the tunnel from the lower level of the house to the backyard, covered in perennials and specimen trees, and wind up at the pièce de résistance: an in-ground pool and cabana, as well as a personal golf course.
