Location: Pleasantville, New York
Combining the best of Wright and the era’s preoccupation with materials, indoor-outdoor connections, and flowing living, the Lew Residence, as it’s known, unfurls across just under 2,600 square feet on an idyllic 1.26-acre site.
The broad-roofed home features an exterior of wood, glass, and brick, with a covered stone pathway and rock garden with open skylights leading to the front door. Inside, the soaring great room boasts a vaulted and paneled ceiling with exposed beams, a large brick hearth, built-in sofa, and walls of glass overlooking a stone patio and the yard beyond.
A dining area then a kitchen enclosed in a wooden volume follows. Here, gorgeous original cabinetry complements built-in shelves lining a brick wall, and, further down the hallway, sliding closet doors and more paneling. Down a couple of steps is a massive family room with direct access to a stone deck.
As for bedrooms there are four, two of which benefit from having a private balcony. Another one boasts an elevated built-in sleeping nook. There are two and half baths, which appear to be largely original, plus a spacious office.
Outside, gorgeously landscaped grounds offer a slice of nature, with a swimming pool, sweeping lawn, and more. Located at 3 Bayberry Drive, the property is offered at $1.59 million. Have a look.
