This Revamped 1766 Colonial Once Hosted George Washington

Location: Scarsdale, New York

Price: $2,499,000

When it comes to property history, is there anything better than a connection, however fleeting, to America's first president? According to a plaque on the side of this restored colonial in the NYC suburb of Scarsdale, New York, the beloved general and founding father stopped off here for lunch on October 23, 1776, on his way to White Plains. No, it's not exactly a milestone in American history, but at least the house has more going for it than just the history. Located just a half-hour from New York City, the 5,500-square-foot house boasts six bedrooms, 5.5 baths, a three-car garage, plus additional space in the walk-out basement.
