In North Salem, New York, the country estates are aplenty. And these two tackle acreage and upscale living like you’ve never seen before. The only question is, which would you choose? Take your pick in this week’s ultra-sophisticated Splurge vs. Steal.
Splurge: New York Country Estate With Barn, Pool, Sport Court, And Summer Kitchen For $5.495M
Surely no country estate is complete without a pool, sport court, and summer kitchen? Well this splurge has all that and more!
First, the exquisite New York country estate sits on a gracious 8.25-acre lot with lush grounds and a sparkling pool. And the fabulous covered terrace framing dramatic western vistas? It’s calling our name.
However, what really sells this gem is the stately Colonial main house. It affords five-bedrooms, plus seven-full-and-one-half-bathrooms. And the interiors are a thing of beauty. Every inch of the home is meticulously updated with the highest level of detail.
Per the listing, “A show-stopping great room with a soaring barn ceiling and huge stone fireplace is the heart of the house and opens to the bespoke farmhouse style chef’s kitchen and breakfast room with brick fireplace, all with multiple doors out to the screened porch with easy access to the sparking pool, sports court, and outdoor summer kitchen.”
But it also has a lower level game room, media room, golf simulator, home gym, and wine cellar. A total of nine fireplaces warm the estate. And French doors are in nearly every corner of the house!
From the majestic grounds to the extensive custom craftsmanship, millwork, and wide plank floors, it’s a work of art worth splurging on. The icing on the cake is the North Salem riding trails just outside your door.

Steal: Artist-Owned Carriage House On Ten Acres For $1.265M
Of course, for several million less you can live large on 10-pristine-acres in this one-of-a-kind Carriage House! It’s a picture-perfect North Salem steal, complete with 4,802-square-foot main house featuring an attached guest cottage, plus a 6,000 square foot heated barn.
And it’s only fitting that this residence epitomizes classic elegance and natural beauty. According to the listing, it has been owned by famous artists for 40 years. If only walls could talk!
We love the custom touches throughout, including gorgeous millwork, oversized windows, rich finishes, and an spacious layout.
“This dramatic home was renovated with creative flourishes, including a priceless trompe l’oeil dining room ceiling and French antique doors,” the listing reads.
Impressive views unfold outdoors too, from the gracious patio with unbelievable sight lines of the lush grounds, to the barn with so much potential.
