Deco Lake

Taking a look on the high side of the market, there's this lovely 1930 estate on Journey's End Lake in Yorktown. The 44 acre property boasts an 8 acre lake, two ponds, and miles of trails. In addition to the 7,532 square foot, 8 bedroom main house, there's also a boat house, a 6 bedroom guest house, a caretaker's cottage, and barns. Once the home of silent film star Holbrook Blinn, the abode has a good deal of Hollywood luxe—and features a glass block fireplace surround! How cool is that? That alone makes the $6,600,000 price seem reasonable. The taxes are harder to swallow at $90,533.
