A Mini Castle in Upstate New York Lists for Nearly $1.75 Million
A miniature castle in Irvington, New York—once home to actors Shirley Jones and Jack Cassidy—has hit the market for $1.749 million.
Known as Villa Keen, the 3,502-square-foot stone abode features two turrets, a Mediterranean-style terracotta tiled roof and ornate stained-glass windows fit for modern royalty, according to last week’s listing with Ryan Paige and Adam Blankfort of Corcoran Baer & McIntosh.
“This is a one-of-a-kind find,” Mr. Blankfort said. “I’ve never seen a property with this proximity to New York City where you have your own courtyard.”
Built in 1929, it’s the type of house that can never be duplicated, Mr. Paige added.
“You just would never build something with this layout and this kind of character,” he said. “Financially, it just wouldn’t make sense for a lot of people. … It’s also on a really nice lot and you’re only about five minutes from the train station. You can be at Grand Central [Terminal] within 30 minutes.”
Far from a drafty old castle, the residence feels “really warm when you’re inside it. It’s definitely a nice place where I think families can gather for the holidays,” Mr. Paige explained.
Indeed, the current owners, Susan and Arnold Gunther, have made it their family home for the last 28 years, according to property records. Mansion Global could not determine how much they paid for the property.
“We, the Gunther family, have enjoyed the neighborhood activities: block parties, screened movies at the Hudson River, the Easter egg candy hunt. We love the history of the area,” Ms. Gunther said in an email, name checking former residents writer Washington Irving and glass artist Louis Tiffany. “The people are interesting people, and there’s always something to do.”
Over the years, a slate of notable names have also lived in the home, and the Gunthers “have been visited by all the former owners’ children or grandchildren through the years.”
Academy award-winning actress Shirley Jones, Tony Award-winning actor Jack Cassidy and their children—one of whom grew up to be musician and television producer Shaun Cassidy—rented the home in the late 1960s when they were both starring in the Broadway musical “Maggie Flynn.” At the time, Robert Wright, an associate producer of “The Carol Burnett Show,” was their landlord, according to 1968

Cortical Labs raises $10M for its Pong-playing stem cells that eventually could power AI
While generative AI is buzzy right now, what OpenAI, Microsoft and Google are doing may be only part of the story. There is also the process of using biology: the idea of using stem cells to create biocomputers that could potentially be smarter and more energy efficient than what we are used to today.
Australian startup Cortical Labs popped up on the radar after Amazon CTO Werner Vogels flew down to Australia to visit their lab recently, and he even wrote about it, calling it “intriguing.”
Cortical combines synthetic biology and human neurons to develop what it claims is a class of AI, known as “Organoid Intelligence” (OI).
It’s now raised a $10 million funding round led by Horizons Ventures, with participation from LifeX (Life Extension) Ventures (the launch of which which we covered last year), Blackbird Ventures, Radar Ventures and In-Q-Tel (the venture arm of the CIA).
The company says it is already in the process of fulfilling orders for its technology.
How it works is that it uses clusters of lab-cultivated neurons from human stem cells to form what it calls a “DishBrain,” which is then hooked-up to hard silicon to create what it describes as a Biological Intelligence Operating System (biOS).
Some observers say this is the future of AI because human neurons could be better than any digital AI model for generalized intelligence, given that they are self-programming and require far less energy consumption.
