Location: Armonk, New York
When it comes to midcentury modern homes, there’s a fine line between vintage kitsch and timelessness. This 1961-built house, designed by Arthur Witthoefft of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (who later completed an intriguing Brutalist home in the same town in 1974), is a lovely example of how decades-old architecture can harken to the past while still feeling fresh.
Built in the woods of Armonk, New York, this 5,000-square-foot home has five bedrooms, five bathrooms, a three car garage, and one wonderfully dramatic 20-foot atrium. Witthoefft designed the space with wall-to-wall windows, which look out onto 2.24 acres of land. If this picture frame of a house wasn’t enough, all of the bedrooms have their own sliding doors that open to the outside.
The house comes with some truly spectacular dimensions. The main living room stretches 35 feet. Meanwhile, at 30 feet, the master bedroom is large enough for a generous sitting area and then some.
The painstakingly maintained house has a wrap-around floating terrace, which creates a bridge between the glassy architecture and the surrounding nature.
The property, located at 9 Tallwoods Road, is asking $2,500,000.
