Price: $1,695,000

Built in 1960, this AIA Merit award winner about 20 miles north of Manhattan was designed by George Nemeny, the late, NYC-based architect known for "airy family homes". Indeed, in this 4,250-square-foot spread surrounded by floor-to-ceiling glazing and lengthy windows, sliding walls—glass or otherwise—is the name of the game. In this way, open-plan interiors can easily become more intimate spaces.

The home's current getup could certainly use some updates, but the house itself has interesting bones with serious potential. Interior highlights include a giant stone fireplace and floating staircase leading to four bedrooms and an expansive family room with access to an elevated rear stone deck. The property also has a 1,100-0square-foot bi-level studio addition with a private entrance and skylights.
