Location: Bedford Hills, N.Y.
The Skinny: Many houses with extravagant exteriors—especially recently renovated ones—don't follow through with equally extravagant interiors, in effect failing to live up to the promises of their façades. This stone mansion in Northern Westchester County is not one of those houses. Behind the four enormous columns that flank the entrance, there are 15,000 square feet of expansive rooms, intricate molding, fireplaces, herringbone floors, chandeliers, and many more columns. Sure, some of it is a little on the outlandish side—the bathtub underneath a skylight surrounded by four orange columns looks like a throne for an alien king—but at least the place is committed to, well, whatever this look is exactly. (Based on the brokerbabble, which begins "Scarlett is calling!" and goes on to describe the ballroom as "waiting for Gatsby," the aesthetic could probably be most accurately described as Old Fictional Rich Person.) There's also a saltwater pool. The house, originally built in 1905, was last purchased in 2003 for $2.8685M, and was listed this January for $3.295M. That didn't work out, and the price has since been reduced to $2.995M.
