Located about 50 minutes from Manhattan in Rye, New York, this four-bedroom, three-bathroom home—also known as The Stoller House—boasts an impeccable midcentury pedigree. Esteemed architectural photographer, Ezra Stoller, defined midcentury modernism with his images. Stoller worked from the late 1930s into the 1980s capturing iconic structures such as Fallingwater, the Guggenheim Museum, the Seagram Building, and the TWA Terminal.
In 1948 Stoller collaborated with two acclaimed midcentury architects, Abraham Geller and George Nemeny, to create an airy, light-filled home just minutes from Long Island Sound. Contemporary additions have increased the home’s footprint to 2,924 square feet, but its midcentury roots remain.
Guests are welcomed to the home with a custom shelf from acclaimed woodworker and architect George Nakashima, and a two-story glass facade lets the light stream in. A sleek kitchen features ribbon windows, a skylight, and plenty of storage—the core around which the home’s flexible living spaces thrive. Everywhere warm wood tones contrast with floor-to-ceiling windows to create a cozy yet open feeling.
The home sits on .74 acres with a flat lawn, a Japanese-influenced courtyard, and decks that overlook the forest. If this looks like your midcentury dream, 16 Kirby Lane is on the market now for $2,200,000.
