Philip Johnson's First Creation Now On Sale For a Discount

The first commission for American architect Philip Johnson—let's call it the "Half-Glass House," as we did before—sits on two wooded acres near a 36-acre reserve in the tony bedroom community of Bedford, N.Y. Originally listed for $2M last November, the three-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom property has just been slashed to $1.6M—a 20-percent PriceChop. Despite the odd-looking kitchen layout, the grounds look gorgeous, there's a staging effort (Eames chairs here and there, a possibly real but probably fake Rothko), and, of course, architectural pedigree. Let's face it, this is the closest thing to Johnson's New Canaan creation that regular people will ever have the chance to live in. What's the trouble?
