Location: Briarcliff Manor, N.Y.
Price: $9,800,000
The Skinny: Built in 1929 for New York banker William S. Lambie, this Georgian manor was designed by architect-to-the-moneyed Mott Schmidt, whose work came into vogue when the tastes of the rich swung from Gilded Age opulence to something (relatively) more restrained. Despite its lack of garish flourishes, with eight bedrooms and 10 bathrooms spread out over 13,242 square feet the property still manages to announce the original owner's wealth very effectively. Located on a 16-acre wooded lot not far from the Hudson River, it's adjacent to the Sleepy Hollow Country Club, and actually sits on the road that inspired Washington Irving's tale of the headless horseman. Schmidt, whose client list reads like a list of Who's Who in early 20th-century New York, also designed homes in the town and country for the Vanderbilts, the Rockefellers, and the Astors. This home is currently owned by the art dealer Warren Adelson and asking $9.8M, a slight drop from the original $10.9M it asked when it was listed earlier this year.
