$25,000,00 for a Gatsby-Era Hamptons Mansion



    A Hamptons home fit for Gatsby himself, this historical landmark was originally designed and built in 1920 by John Custis Lawrence, and underwent a full structural renovation in 2002. Each of the eight bedrooms is designed for maximum ocean views, as are are the formal living and dining rooms, sun room and library. Five fireplaces and a generous heated gunite pool keep you cozy, while your privacy is maintained by landscaping designed especially for that. The 12,000 square feet of living space on 1.2 surrounding acres--200 of which are ocean-front--offers ample room for luxurious beachfront relaxation. Old meets new in this newly-revamped classic, and the results are stunning. View the listing

    [OHV] Designer Living: 77 Hudson
    When killer views are the star of your home, you should tailor your decor to maximize your viewing pleasure according to design expert Rene Pabon. The president of Chicago-based interior design firm Childs/Dreyfus Group shares some tips on how to showcase fabulous, unobstructed vistas like he did at a model apartment in 77 Hudson, a luxe Jersey City high-rise. Horizontal molding, a neutral palette and low furniture draw the eye to the gorgeous panoramas of downtown Manhattan and New York Harbor. Moving the dining room to a glass-wrapped nook also makes mealtime feel like you're floating on a cloud. Promotional consideration furnished by 77 Hudson. (Published Tuesday, Oct. 5, 2010)
