Bill and Hillary Clinton put this little hamlet on the map in 1999 when they bought a 5-bedroom, 100-year-old Dutch colonial there for $1.7 million. These days, newly built grand estates in Chappaqua go for several times that. Other notable residents have included New York governor Andrew Cuomo and Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley.
