This week we are taking a quick road trip! We hope this might inspire you to think outside of the box… at least geographically. The question we have gotten most from potential sellers in this market is:
Where will we go if inventory is so tight?
Well, two answers might be Connecticut or across the Hudson River. Only, a hop, skip, and jump away mid century homes are waiting for you. Don’t forget that our network operates all over the country. So, give a call to learn more.
P.S. If you have any friends or family that would enjoy this weekly update, please let us know and we would be glad to add them to our mailing list.

Hugh Smallen’s “Tatum House” is a striking exemplar of New Canaan’s iconic Bauhaus-inspired midcentury Modernism, offering clean, minimalist lines and flowing spaces. The home’s interior spaces are designed for comfort and flexible living, while its expansive window walls continuously frame the landscape and seasons. The home, built in 1962 and expanded by Smallen in 1967, has maintained its architectural integrity while evolving to meet modern needs. The current owners thoroughly modernized the home’s infrastructure, and collaborated with several of Smallen’s contemporaries – John Black Lee, Alan Goldberg, and the landscape architect Peter Rolland – to refine the living spaces and landscape design. Their contributions respected and updated Smallen’s original work in an ongoing collaboration across time. The team’s work has earned the Tatum House editorial plaudits and a listing on the National Register of Historic Places. But more importantly, they’ve created a home that offers an opportunity to experience, day in and day out, the pleasures of living with authentic modern design.

A rare opportunity to own one of the most private properties in the sought-after hamlet of Sneden’s Landing. This light-filled, contemporary home sits on over an acre of land overlooking the Hudson River with spectacular views from just about every angle. It has a unique, open floorplan, industrial-style kitchen with multi-level dining and living areas, and a large media/ family room, perfect for entertaining or lazy Sunday afternoons. The views are hard to exaggerate. Each of the three bedrooms upstairs has floor-to-ceiling windows that open out to a wraparound balcony. Imagine sipping your morning coffee while taking in the breathtaking views of the river, from the changing leaves of Autumn, fresh snowflakes gathering around you, to lush green foliage in the spring and summer, or how about a dip in the heated saltwater infinity pool. At just a 10 minute drive from the George Washington Bridge, this property perfectly encapsulates the ideal escape to the country.
