Best of the Week

15 Myrtle has hit the market!!! Oppotunities to live in a home such as this do not come around very often… so, don’t miss the opportunity to reimagine living in this beasutiful river town home.

We are keeping things short and sweet this week since the Architectual Homes Team admin is on vacation. But since we love our Mid-Century Modern followers we could not leave you hanging. The next two homes on our list embody the key differences between mid-century and contemporary homes.

So, which is your favorite?



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.


15 Myrtle Avenue
Dobbs Ferry, NY

The Favata House, created in 1960 by noted architect George Nemeny, delves into the spirit of movement by envisioning spaces that flow from an open floorplan, to creating separate intimate living areas with the simple sliding of paneled walls. The two story glass façade bathes the open living space with western light illuminating the two story stone fireplace, floating staircase to a gallery leading to 4 bedrooms, and a yoga/family room with access to a floating stone deck and yard. The addition of an expansive studio off the main living area creates options for living. The original structure, built in 1960 won an AIA Merit award with the jury noting that it was a “disarmingly direct solution…displaying great restraint, with no frills or tricks. The materials are handsomely used and excellently detailed” A beautiful example how space, thoughtfully created, blends organic elements with forethought on how we truly live. Welcome Home!



385 Evergreen Lane
Narrowsburg, NY

Completed just one year ago, this new build is a trifecta – a real estate holy trinity of design, location, quality. This is the first resale of a Modern Catskills build. The modern design is built with both efficiency of space and energy use in mind. Low carbon footprint systems have been used. The voluminous spaces are warmed by radiant heat in poured concrete floors. Walls and roof are super insulated using natural materials. The pine exterior cladding and interior walls were sourced locally. Bosch appliances are Energy Star rated. Efficient ductless air conditioning systems cool the home in the summer. The living area is focussed on the impact of the wall of windows and a 24′ ceiling. The open concept kitchen melds into the living area, both of which feel the ever-present light from the huge wall of windows. With so much transparency in the living area, the line between the interior and the exterior seem to blur. The heated cedar hot tub is like a personal spa.
