Get Thee to Westchester County for this Mid-Mod Butterfly House, $1.3M

  |  August 2, 2018

We’re about to get our Fancy Zen on with this Westchester County mid-century modern…

Nothing screams “mid-mod!!” like a butterfly roof. If you’re unsure what they means, take a look at the exterior of this Pound Ridge, NY home. See the way the roof slopes toward the center, making it look almost like a magical mid-mod butterfly?

Originally constructed in 1956, this 3,162-square-foot home received a masterful restoration with all sleekness of a 2018 house. David Henken, disciple of Frank Lloyd Wright and follower of the Usonian style, designed it. Thanks to that signature slopping roof, the corner of the main living room includes an impressive floor-to-ceiling bank of windows, as does the upstairs master bedroom.

Foodies, get ready to start drooling, because look at the (marble) counter space in the stylish, stainless steel kitchen…

Family room includes a dramatic stone fireplace and mahogany wood paneling.

Look at the impressive built-ins in one of the home’s two bedrooms. Now your guests can feel like they’re sleeping in the coolest cruise ship cabin ever.

Don’t plan to set foot outside of this work-of-art interior? You will, once you get a load of the 1.92-acre property, located in northeastern Westchester, not far from the Connecticut border. NYC is an hour away, but it couldn’t feel more like this home is on another, much more serene, planet.
