A Charming French Château Just Minutes From Manhattan?

by Stephanie Maida · September 30, 2016

You don't have to throw your phone in the ocean and hop on a plane in order to get some Provençal peace and quiet. Who knew? Well apparently Diane Sawyer, since she once owned this idyllic stone hideaway with her late husband, Mike Nichols in Orangetown, New York. The 3,108-square-foot property has changed hands a few times since being built by notable art colony founders, the Tonetti family in the 1920s, and it's on the market one more. For just $4.6 million, this rustic cliffside home could be yours, complete with guest cottage and a stunning view of the Hudson River. The best (and perhaps most unbelievable) part? It's only a 25-minute drive from Midtown Manhattan. And you thought moving to the suburbs was for losers. Click through for a tour of this surprising French charmer.
