    North of NYC North of NYC By Houlihan Lawrence By Houlihan Lawrence by

    If summer is all about pools, fall is all about fire pits. As the summer heat and humidity dwindles north of NYC, we can once again delight in long hours outside, headed to the backyard to light off what might as well be the pumpkin spice of home amenities. Pop on your favorite hoodie and join us for a tour of some of the best examples from our current inventory:

    GREENWICH | 751 Lake Avenue
    Encircled by Adirondack chairs, this poolside pit is a joy enough on nippy summer nights, but you'll love it fall all the s'more. The back porch of the gated home, designed by Kaali-Nagy, flips around to a covered patio with an outdoor kitchen and another outdoor fireplace.

    YORKTOWN HEIGHTS | 1695 Croton Lake Road
    This lower Hudson Valley retreat feels like endless summer camp, making a fire feature very necessary. Encompassing ten unspoiled acres in Northern Westchester bordered by reservoir, the property is reached by a long, winding drive past its historic apple orchards—but you'll never want to make like a tree and leave.

    DARIEN | 49 Greenleaf Avenue
    At this stunning Connecticut new construction, take a few steps to fireside dessert and digestifs after a dinner of grilled goodness from the spectacular outdoor kitchen. With ample square footage of covered and open patio space, it's a perfect package.
