If the events of the last week leave you looking to escape to a home that offers you a bit of seclusion, you may want to consider this $1.4 million house which looks like it's part of a large British estate, but is actually just 45 minutes from Manhattan. It's in the charming Westchester suburb of Croton-on-Hudson.

Hudsonview, which is actually a grand brick manor, offers serious privacy in a country-like setting with views of the Hudson River, The Palisades and Croton Point. Asides from the extensive grounds, there's a definite Downton Abbey feel indoors, with a 45-foot long ornate great room with matching fireplaces, vaulted ceilings, a grand dining room, large sun room, and a rear terrace with river vistas.

Wood paneling and details abound throughout, the plush reddish tones accentuating the swanky feel of the rooms and lending them a cozy richness and definite period feel.

The house, which is being marketed by Houlihan Lawrence, is also close to the Croton-Harmon Metro-North Station, where you can hop on an express train that's 46 minutes to Grand Central.

But in feel, it's a world—or at least an ocean—away.
