Sure, this family-friendly home is a study in understated mid-mod-iness (and we adore it) with all the hallmarks of the design period (interior bathed in natural light, walls of windows, wood floors, open floor plan, etc.), and yet, it maintains a level of warmth that might not always been inherent in a more minimal mid-mod.
The three-acre property, however, it was truly sets it asunder from its counterparts. Tucked away among the pines and hidden from site thanks to its locale in state land near the Croton Reservoir, the property includes a pond (plus a stone patio overlooking it) and a rolling park-like lawn perfect for outdoor entertaining and lounging – in the shade, even – during long summer evenings.
Located at the end of a dead-end road an hour from Manhattan.
