147 Mianus River Road
Bedford, NY

In 1977, master builder John Tishman (The World Trade Center, Sears Tower, John Hancock Building) built himself a country house in Bedford, NY. He integrated into the house the steel beams for which he was famous in his construction of skyscrapers. Nearly 50 years later, that modernist house has been brought into the 21st century by AIA-award-winning architect Belmont Freeman. Thoughtfully renovated to preserve the simple lines and gracious spaces that Tishman originally envisioned, while incorporating luxurious modern finishes throughout. A two story great room with walls of glass and 17′ soaring ceilings harmoniously blend indoor and outdoor living. Perfectly sited on over 5 private, tranquil acres, featuring a new negative ionization low chlorine pool, with sweeping drive and gated entry. Walking distance to the Mianus River Gorge Preserve with over 800 acres of walking trails. Majestic views abound from this iconic Contemporary. 1 hour to midtown NYC.
