Location: Armonk, New York
A cool 1974 home with Brutalist sensibilities is on the market in the hamlet of Armonk in Westchester County, New York. Designed by Arthur Witthoefft, an architect at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, the Branscombe Residence features a facade of asymmetrical volumes of ribbed split-face architectural block that gives the home a monumental feel.
Despite its scale and concrete construction, the 3,926-square-footer boasts spacious interiors that still manage to feel warm. This quality is a result of the many large windows like floor-to-ceiling sliders, picture windows, clerestory, and otherwise found throughout, as well as its dynamic, split-level floorplan.
On the main floor, a double-height dining room connects to an open kitchen and living room with fireplace, where sliders open onto an extensive terrace. The master suite with huge bathroom and walk in closet, plus a half bath, is also found on this level. Upstairs, a mezzanine family room with sloped ceilings offers a bright and airy retreat. Three additional bedrooms—each with its own balcony—and two three-quarter baths round out the floor.
As for the grounds, the 2.5-acre site offers lush manicured lawns and landscaping, plenty of outdoor entertaining spaces, as mentioned, and, of course, a magnificent pool. Located at 5 Hidden Oak Lane and completely refurbished, the property is offered at $2.195 million. Have a look.
