The Architectural Homes Team loves fall. The glass windows in our mid-century modern homes become picture frames for vibrant fall foliage. Autumn in New York is the perfect time to preview this week’s selections. There are just a few weeks left to get out and celebrate the abundance of fall colors and spectacular architecture. Homes are selling fast! Remember that there is no time like the present!
As always enjoy our picks, and have a great weekend!
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.
25 Brite Avenue
This contemporary mid-century modern home was built by well known architect, Milton Klein in 1965. Klein highlights the classic elements of the style with its brick exterior, low pitched pebble roof and front courtyard. The courtyard looks into the oversized and sunken living room and blurs the lines between the indoor and outdoor spaces. Floor-to-ceiling windows, high ceilings and an open concept living and dining room create an airy and spacious feeling. Additional mid-century design elements include oversized travertine tiles, an asymmetrical brick wall dedicated to the fireplace and hearth with additional built-in seating, along with a tucked around the corner “madmen” style bar. The open concept two level main living space is separated by a long, low, built-in credenza style buffet. The 1st floor primary bedroom is well apportioned with an adjoining den/office or nursery. This fabulous and pristine mid-century home is a true gem from the period waiting for its revival.

37 Colonial Avenue
Dobbs Ferry, NY
Beautifully renovated, 37 Colonial lives like a vacation home thruout the year. Tucked away on a bucolic .25 acre in Riverview Manor, yet only minutes to town and train, this pristine California Contemporary is nestled within mature woodlands and adjacent to the scenic Croton Aqueduct Trail. A clever expansion by a Rivertowns architect creates a special home that makes the most of its setting. The show-stopper living room is perfect in all seasons for watching sunsets over the Hudson. In three seasons, enjoy exquisite Hudson River views beside a fireplace; in summer, open generous sliding glass doors to a delightful deck encircled by greenery. The open plan of the upper floor feels bright and spacious as it floats under a pattern of exposed beams. On the entry level below, a family room/home office features wide sliders to a covered stone patio looking out to a level lawn beyond. The home’s four bedrooms each have banks of windows framing verdant views and offer soothing sounds from a babbling brook. Marvin windows! With a private and picturesque spring-fed neighborhood pool, and an entry to the Aqueduct from the yard, this home is a rare retreat just blocks from Metro North and 35 minutes to midtown Manhattan.
