Location: New Castle, N.Y.
Price: $4,000,000
The Skinny: Myron Goldfinger, who's recently been enjoying some renewed attention thanks to one of his homes featuring in a party scene in the Leo DiCaprio debauchathon The Wolf of Wall Street, is the architect behind this contemporary New York home that has just hit the market for $4M. Built in 1991, the home's most prominent feature (besides a consistently inconsistent collection of furniture) is a curved-ceiling, three-story open-plan living space served by a floating staircase. It's also very big: six bedrooms, six bathrooms, and 8,200 square feet of (mostly) negative space. The home does have nice views of the surrounding wooded lot, clerestory windows reflect light down the slope of the ceiling to help fill the cavernous main room with much-needed illumination, and the human-scaled sitting room filled with midcentury furniture is actually kind of inviting. Away from the main house and the vast, empty space at its heart, there's a cabana with summer kitchen, a Shoreline pool, and a tennis court.
