Best of the Week

Welcome back mid-century modern enthusiasts, real estate junkies, and anyone who loves significant architecture.

Are you ready for vacation? I hope so because this week we are taking a drive through beautiful upstate New York. These luxurious hide-aways might be just what you need to soak up the summer sun! First stop on our list is 167 Salem Road which stills leaves you close enough to New York City to enjoy urban life.

If you are willing to drive a little further 40 Gardnerville is an old school house that has been masterfully rennovated into a contemporary home. If you want a little more space or have a love for horses, 1955 Lucas might be the place for you. Last but not least, we have a contemporary cabin on a pristine lake estate.



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.
