Location: Garrison, New York
Here’s your chance to live in a stunning work of contemporary architecture by Japanese architect Toshiko Mori, perhaps best known for her design of the Thread Artists’ Residency and Cultural Center in Senegal.
Completed in 2007, the glass home features a minimalist design that is nonetheless striking for the way two rectangular volumes intersect, with the upper volume cantilevering perpendicularly above the lower one.
The 3,382-square-foot residence is located in Garrison just outside of Manhattan and is strategically placed within its 2.38-acre site to frame views of the Hudson River and Storm King Mountain from five of its completely glazed sides.
On the main floor, an open-plan living area encompasses a lounge anchored by a fireplace, dining, and sleek kitchen, on the other side of which is a family room. Each space looks out toward the river by way of the aforementioned full-height windows.
A staircase leads upstairs, where three bedrooms that also boast floor-to-ceiling walls of glass are situated. Three full baths and one half bath round out the property, whose grounds have been landscaped by Quennell Rothschild and Partners. The lower level even includes a living roof. Located at 90 Manitou Station Road, it’s offered at $4.95 million.
