The Skinny: Known simply as the River House, this glassy Hudson Valley getaway was built by architect Barry Price in a style that melds post-and-beam architecture with a strong Asian influence. Set on 22 riverfront acres, the 6,300-square-foot compound includes a main house, a studio, and elegant Japanese gardens. The river views, once obscured by a dense forest, were revealed by a thorough pruning, which the owners supervised while living in an Airstream trailer on the property, after moving out of Manhattan and selling their previous weekend home to finance the construction. Now they're ready to move on, and make some money for their efforts. Listed for close to $3M, the River House lies about two hours north of NYC.
