Location: Briarcliff Manor, New York

Price: $1,100,000

This striking home in Westchester County, New York was designed in 1969 by Roy Johnson, a “disciple” of Frank Lloyd Wright, according to the listing, and boasts a unique cut-out roof that appears to be his signature move.

Comprising four bedrooms and three baths over 2,574 square feet of bright and open living, the recently updated home features a dynamic floor plan dictated by the roof’s angular and protruding overhangs. Floor-to-ceiling walls of folded plate glass create geometric openings and triangular clerestory windows that frame the residence’s nearly two-acre, tree-filled lot.

A sunken living room with brick fireplace, formal dining room, eat-in kitchen with access to a stone terrace, exercise room, lush landscaping, fire pit, and a custom rock waterfall that flows in into a hot tub round out the property. Located at 543 Scarborough Road just an hour north of New York City, this special home is offered at $1,100,000.
