Miles of Tiles
The Fieldston neighborhood of Riverdale, New York, is one of the most exclusive (read: wealthiest) in the New York City metropolitan area, and it's also a rarity in that it's privately owned and maintained by its residents. The homes are large, vintage, and unique, like this spectacular 1920s Mediterranean, on the market for $3.750 million. The 7 bed/6.5 bath with over 8100 square feet also has a library, media room, gym, wine cellar and artists' studio. Vintage details like beamed ceilings and arched windows meld seamlessly with modern details like the huge cutting edge kitchen. The home also has some of the most dazzling tilework we've seen outside of Valencia—take a look at the floors, stair risers, dining room fireplace, and breakfast room walls. Seriously, we order you to look here.
