Heads up, lovers of incredibly awesome wood-beamed ceilings: a new listing from the drafting table of the award-winning architect—and major muckety-muck—Gil Schafer has just cropped up on the market. The five-bedroom beaut was built in 2006 in the Greek Revival mold, offering an elegant curved entry stair inside and stellar views of the Hudson Valley and Catskill Mountains from the more than 21-acre grounds. The nearly 6,000-square-foot house also comes with a pine-paneled library, more than a few working fireplaces, his and her dressing rooms, a pool, and rather gracious interior spaces to loll about in luxury while soaking in all that country. Everything here is grand, including the price: $9.99M.
