No architect for this one, but we do have a celebrity former owner for this 1960s midcentury modern property in Bedford, New York, USA.
That former owner is Jim Henson. Yes, the man behind the Muppets. Sadly Jim is no longer with us, but his good taste lives on in the form of this midcentury design from 1969.
In a sought after area that’s popular with celebrities, the house sits on a plot covering nearly two acres. It isn’t short of space inside either, with around 3.843 sq. ft. of living area.
Renovated as you might have guessed, but still offering plenty of original style alongside the modern luxury. Love the heavily glazed exterior (and terrace) overlooking the pool, the beams inside and especially the stone fireplace and/or room divider. A lovely open layout inside too, with the living space flowing effortlessly from one room to another. Great for a party, you’d imagine.
That inside space includes what looks like a high end chef’s kitchen open to the family room, additional reception space, a master bedroom suite with sunken tub, three further bedrooms and a laundry room on the main level.
There is also a lower level, where you’ll find the recreation room, an office with fireplace, a further bedroom, a bathroom and doors to the rear yard.
Oh yes, the outside space. That is dominated by the heated pool area, but there is also decking, an outdoor wood burning fireplace built into the exterior of the house, gardens, extensive woodland and a three car garage.
A nice balance of original and contemporary, it is on the market for $1,200,000.
