Description: Just 40 miles west of Wall Street is a leafy suburb of large homes on big lots. This one is an 11-room Cotswold cottage clone with generous-sized spaces, like a 540-square-foot kitchen and a 360-square-foot dining room.

Fine interior details include five fireplaces, built-in bookcases and cupboards and wide ceiling moldings. Outside are a whitewashed brick exterior walls, a slate roof and red shutters. The lot is shaded by massive old-growth trees and nestles in a hillside.

The wealthy community maintains its sense of space with strict zoning laws that mandate 10-acre plots, quite large for the most densely populated state in the United States. The zip code recorded an adjusted gross income median of $477,075 in 2004.
