Price: $999,000 The Skinny: A mix of modernist form and rustic materials, this 1958 lake house injects some sleek style into the tired cabin-in-the-woods genre. A two-story wall of glass faces the lake, while natural wood and a low profile help the house blend into the surrounding woods. The 2,250-square-foot, three-bedroom house is, according to the listing agent's estimates anyway, about an hour outside of New York City. For that sort of proximity, $1 million seems like a deal. The only drawback is the limited grounds: the house sits on less than a half acre. Source: Crosby Doe.
