Location: Southport, Conn.
The Skinny: Plenty of massive new builds attempt to emulate the architectural styles of the past, but this waterfront spread in Southport, Conn. fares better than most when it comes to convincing. Currently on the market for $25.5M, the 17,000-square-foot mansion is discreetly sited on its 11-acre plot, surrounded by elegant landscaping and old-growth trees. Designed by C|S Architects partner Jason Chai in 2003, the house mixes old-school sophistication and quirks with modern amenities. The interiors also feature an eclectic style, though securing the furnishings will likely push the price even higher.
