Add the historic McComb House to the portfolio of Marcel Breuer homes popping up for sale in the Northeast over the past couple of years. Locate in Poughkeepsie, New York, the 1950s split-level modern residence was originally designed for Peter and Karen Ranung McComb and featured a modified “binuclear” layout comprising two wings and a central connecting hallway and a butterfly roof overhead.

Over the years, the home has been sympathetically updated with additions for a total of five alterations that follow the principles of the modernist architect and now encompass four bedrooms and three bathrooms over 2,838 square feet. Wood siding, accented by a section of blue, make up the clean-lined facade.

Anchoring the interiors is a soaring, open-plan living room with large glass sliders framing views of the woodsy 3.4-acre site. A brick fireplace separates the lounge from the library, while a study mezzanine is found on the opposite side. Below this space is a dining area that opens onto a two-story screened porch, followed by an efficient kitchen with stainless steel appliances including two ovens. Spacious, sunny bedrooms round out the home.

Located at 27 Hornbeck Ridge an hour or two outside of New York City, the property is offered at a palatable $895,000. Take a look.
