Critically Acclaimed Robert A.M. Stern Design Asks $5.9M

New, 4 comments

Built by starchitect Robert. A.M. Stern in 1975, Deer Ridge went on to garner a 1976 Progressive Architecture Award, a Residential Design Award from the New York Chapter of the American Institute of Architecture, and a First Honor Award from Housing Magazine. Given the glut of postmodern works that have arrived since, today it cuts a rather modest profile, although despite Stern's professed love for straight lines—he once recounted that "everybody says, 'Oh, Stern, you're just old-fashioned.' Well, maybe I am, but I still like right angles"—he did shake things up a bit with this one, throwing in a curvilinear form or two. Sitting on about 20 acres in Armonk, N.Y., the home has five ensuite bath-equipped bedrooms that flow, per the listing, in a "daringly configured" fashion. The current owners purchased it in 1992 and undertook a "soup to nuts" renovation, replacing just about everything but the bluestone floor and adding a large addition at the east end and an extension of the kitchen, bringing the total square footage to 6,500. The current ask is $5.9M, and comes with a backyard pool and a three-bedroom guest cottage. Check it out below:
