Tasteful Friends: Five Metro NYC Estates for your Real Estate Porn Viewing

It’s kind of a pain as you have to click on the link to launch each estate, but a nice cross section of available upper echelon homes for sale. The Irvington one (pictured here) is definitely the winner, a bit of SoCal Spanish Colonial Revival on the east coast, so quite unusual.

I wanted to like the Spanish inspired house in Irvington, but except for a handful of details it looks like it could have been built yesterday (the link just states 50 or 50+ years old, buy it was built in 1912 according to Realtor.com date - which fits with the large colonaded room with some good early details. The rest though looks overscrubbed of age or over-renovated, without much Spanish character outside the exterior and the one large room. No one ever went to Granada to see a house like this mini executive estate. I'm not sure I would go to Irvington to see it.

They are all a bit McMansiony, the second one especially so. They're all a bit bland inside.

I did like the interior on the third one (the Spanish one) the most of all of them, but the exterior of the fourth one. First one wasnt bad either

They're all too big anyway, and the interiors are a bit short of character

They just picked 5 random homes--there is a whole lot of inventory at those price points throughout the NYC area.

Chappaqua, Greenwich and Purchase are not easy commutes into Manhattan.

There's a direct train from Chappaqua but it takes and hour or longer.

Greenwich is closer to 45 minutes by train but the house itself is a good 20 minute drive to the train

"Plandome Manor" is a neighborhood in Manhasset on LI, which is an easy commute but you are on Long Island.

Irvington is a pretty town and easy commute and the house is on a lot of property, but the taxes are $133K/year which is a lot even at that price point.

The 12 million dollar waterfront house would make a great restaurant, but an odd house. Out of the others the Spanish style looks the most interesting
