Located in Hillsdale, New York, this four-bedroom, three-bath house is an eye-catching take on the boxy contemporary. Designed and built by Bernheimer Architecture in 2007, the home is clad almost entirely in corrugated copper siding and a mixture of flat-seam and standing seam copper roofing.
The goal of the unusual siding, according to the architect, is to create a facade that will age and “develop a patina that reflects time through material changes.” It also looks pretty dang cool. It helps, of course, that the home is tucked away in the forest on six acres in an upstate hamlet that’s known as a second-home oasis and gateway to the Berkshires.
Inside, the dark, geometric exterior gives way to an airy and minimalist space, with sculpted south-facing skylights that bathe the home in light. An eight-foot tall, 30-foot-long, open bookshelf system runs the length of the ground floor and divides the main living spaces, and the kitchen gleams in stainless steel.
Two of the bedrooms and an office are downstairs while the master is upstairs, but all of the bedrooms feature carefully placed windows that frame forest views. Love what you see? 871 Pumpkin Hill is on the market now for $775,000.
