This handsome $1.2M midcentury is your chance to join the celebrity coven in Bedford, NY, where Martha Stewart, Bruce Willis, Catherine Zeta Jones, and Blake Lively have all purchased homes. Of course, this property is also not without its own ties to fame, as it once was the residence of Jim Henson, the late, great puppeteer and artist who brought the world the Muppets.

Built in 1969, the 3,843-square-foot house sits on nearly two acres of woodlands. Its airy interiors with high ceilings and glass walls look out to a wide deck, heated pool, and dense gardens and woods. The five-bedroom house was thoroughly renovated by current owners and includes a chef's kitchen and a generous living and dining area highlighted by massive stone walls.
