I do love a random fact on a listing too. In this case, it is about the original owners, who were Dr. Irving and Mari Lipton and apparently ‘ America’s premier collectors of wood art’.

Sadly that collection isn’t still here, despite this being the first time the house has been on the market.

But a lot of wood remains in the form of walls and beams, along with some rather eye-catching stonework too. Lots of originality dotted about as you would expect as well, including that rather interesting circular metal wall and what looks like a rather dramatic fireplace. High ceilings and plenty of glass of course.

Saying that, it isn’t quite a time capsule, more a house that where the original design has been respect over the subsequent 56 years. It perhaps needs a little more work to bring it back to its best, but with so much of the early ‘60s about this place, it should be a labour of love for the right buyer.
