Location: Upper Brookville, N.Y.
Price: $6,999,000
The Skinny: Aptly named Fieldstone Farm, this 11-acre North Shore estate centers around an imposing stone mansion. The eight-bed, eight-bath spread is locked away down a long driveway and behind automated gates, ensuring privacy and the sort of impressive formal entrance required by the country nobility. The interiors, while certainly luxurious, aren't quite glamorous, with stuffy furnishings and wall-to-wall carpeting in a few rooms, but the swimming pool, set on a well-trimmed pad of grass in the backyard, looks like something out of a Slim Aarons photograph. Listed for close to $7M, this place is certainly aimed at someone looking to make the quick commute into Manhattan, while enjoying the country lifestyle at home. After all, there must be somewhere to land a helicopter on those 11 acres.
