This house is a French chateau transplanted to Matinecock, set on three-plus wooded acres, with a stone patio, pool and all-weather tennis courts. Built in 1926, it even has a connection to American history: Its first owner was a granddaughter of President Benjamin Harrison.

“It’s very European – and this is the first time its been on the market in over 40 years,” says says Anita Meltzer, the listing broker at Piping Rock Associates. “It’s very private -- on a private lane. It backs up to a country club. And it’s within easy commuting distance to New York, probably about 45 minutes.”

Indoors, there are high ceilings, three fireplaces, six bedrooms and six and a half baths, plus an office and formal dining room in addition to the kitchen, living room, library and sunroom -- 13 rooms in all.

So, how much does it all cost? They’re looking for $3,250,000.
