8603 Inwood Rd., $3,195,000

Are you an elegant and refined person of taste? Of course you are! And as such, you will be right at home in this traditional, 1.56-acre lushly landscaped estate located on Inwood Road. This is the ideal place for all of your civilized endeavors. You can read Tolstoy in the library, meet with your wealth manager in the solarium, and work on your fitness in the exercise room.

And when you’ve completed all of those tasks, there is but one thing left to do: pool party. Get ready because your friends and family will constantly show up for impromptu swimming soirees at your house. Games of Marco Polo will take on a sophisticated air in your gorgeous pool, and sunbathers can imagine they’re in an exotic locale while lounging on the limestone deck. Those avoiding the sun—and mosquitoes—can choose from an assortment of covered porches from whence to sip Champagne.
