Location: Snedens Landing, N.Y.
The Skinny: Snedens Landing is a tiny enclave nestled between two state parks on the Hudson River, just a half-hour outside NYC. According to a local listing agent, the town has been popular with celebs for years, counting John Steinbeck, Orson Welles, Laurence Olivier, and Vivian Leigh among its former residents. The dance virtuoso Mikhail Baryshnikov has kept this 4.23-acre estate, known as The Red Barn, in Snedens Landing for 30 years, but apparently even the rich and famous look to downsize once their nest empties. Baryshnikov and his wife have purchased a smaller home in town, and are trying to unload The Red Barn for $6.3M.
