Location: Rye, New York
For folks who love midcentury modern design’s open plans and glass walls, this expansive 1965-built house 30 miles north of Manhattan will be sure to delight. That’s because the house, designed by American architectGeorge Nemeny, spans some 8,100 square feet and most of that is one airy space flowing into another, each with wide-open views of the wooded surrounding neighborhood.
We’re told the main living area ceiling is 45 feet high, its dramatic proportions further driven home by a full-height brick fireplace. Floating staircases and exposed second floor walkways also highlight the openness of the residence.
The home has seven bedrooms and five bedrooms, two family rooms, a sitting area, den, and contemporary kitchen with a sizable island. Gorgeous built-in storage—both concealed cabinets and open shelving—can be spotted throughout.
Elsewhere on the nearly two-acre property, there’s a generously sized pool and blue stone patio. Tempted? 280 Grace Church Street is now asking $3,950,000, after a $150,000 price reduction in June.
