A lovely house in largely original condition. Yes, we do love this 1950s David Henken-designed midcentury modern property in New Castle, New York, USA.
You will find on top of a ‘private zen-like oasis’ (that’s the agent’s words of course), nestling into the wooded landscape effortlessly. Although it was obviously some effort to make it look so natural.
Once up the hill, there is so much to appreciate here. Cantilevered rooms, mitred corner glass, clerestory windows, slate floors, wooden decks and an indoor / outdoor design that encourages you to be a part of the nature on your doorstep.
Did we mention those fireplaces? They’re pretty special too, as is the curved staircase, the built-in fittings and storage and the use of wood pretty much all over the interior.
It’s not quite a time capsule, with some expansion and updates here and there. But those updates have been sensitive to the original architecture.
Talking of updates, you now also have a pool and pool house here, which aren’t original although very much welcome additions.
It’s on a two-acre lot, with the house offering 5,121 sq. ft of living space, which includes give bedrooms, three bathrooms and substantial reception space.
$990,000 if this has caught your eye.
