Location: Tuxedo Park, New York
Price: $2,700,000
Another one of the beefy nineteenth-century mansions of Tuxedo Park, New York, has come to market, this one by architect Bruce Price, who designed a number of homes in the village that are still somehow referred to as "cottages." Unlike the others, this 7,821-square-foot home combines Tudor Revival elements with traditional Japanese building features.

Via Sotheby's:

Its unique architectural details showcase Japanese accents of the curved roofline, exposed rafters and Oriental medallions in the stucco façade. The interior is a seemless blending of treasured elements—high ceilings, exquisite hardwood floors, beautiful fireplaces and oversized windows capturing magical views of the sparkling Tuxedo Lake and surrounding hills. The Japanese influence seems to drop off pretty steeply once you step inside, but the interior looks in better condition than some of Tuxedo Park's grander robber-baron-worthy affairs. The asking price is $2.7M.
