Location: Nyack, New York

Price: $819,000

There’s a recently restored (and updated) midcentury modern home for sale in Nyack, where, according to Lohud, this style of architecture is elusive. Built in 1968, the 4,046-square-foot four-bed-four-bath was designed by local architect Charles J. Winter and used as his home and studio. Winter also designed many residences in Rockland County in the Bauhaus style.

Combining multiple levels, double-height sections, mezzanines, floor-to-ceiling windows, an open floor plan, and Japanese elements like shoji doors, the bright and dynamic space exists in harmony with the surrounding landscaping while framing views of the Hudson River. Dark beams contrast with the white ceilings, while red-painted geometric nooks call to mind a Mondrian painting.

Situated on a sloping site, a portion of the house perches on stilts, creating a covered patio underneath that extends the indoor-outdoor quality of the space. A separate studio accessed by a walkway can be used as an office, guest cottage, or in-law suite. Located at 16 Shadyside Avenue just 25 miles from New York City, the property is offered at $819,000.
