This swank bedroom community of 20,280 is just 45 miles from Manhattan—but feels like it’s a world away. The town itself is 22 square miles, mostly comprised of one-third, one-half, one- and two-acre lots, with a diverse range of properties from traditional turn-of-the-century homes to contemporary “green” and avant-garde architecture.
