WaterRun is an extraordinary, modernist, country estate on 13.9 acres located in the Hudson Highlands, only one hour north of NYC, along the Hudson River train line. Built by and for renowned architect and (mid-century) designer, Paul Mayen and his partner Edgar Kaufman Jr, now owned by artist/gallery owner. The home and its gardens have always attracted artists and collectors because of it museum qualities and aesthetic value. Paul Mayen was also the second (only) architect to work on the acclaimed Frank Lloyd Wright masterpiece, Fallingwater, designing its visitor center. Mayen’s life partner, Kaufman inherited Fallingwater from his parents. Both Fallingwater and WaterRun follow the philosophy of organic architecture: the harmonious union of art and nature………. WaterRun is set within a natural landscape with a whimsical twist to classic gardens designs along with follies that add extravagance to this serene landscape. The home’s 7,500sf is comprised of two structures with a dramatic 83ft glass walkway connecting the buildings and features clean and uncluttered lines and designs that blend seamlessly into the woodlands with symmetry and grace. Large expanses of glass throughout the structure underscore the reticence and austerity of the style that permits the natural beauty of the property to dominate the house. Mayen’s use of built-in furniture, lighting and even hidden electrical outlets are seamless and blend into the room, not detectable to the eye. The large amount of wall space at the core of the structure is perfect for one’s collections and art………. The horticultural splendor surprises you around every corner of the garden. Dazzling and romantic outdoor spaces are very accessible and create a park like atmosphere defined by its ponds, cascading waterfalls, stone pyramids, a series of obelisks, “scent” garden, spruce room, poet’s corner, two classic Greco-Roman pavilions, the “grotto”, long, defined, walking paths, classical statuary, and a tennis court with a unique amphitheater like viewing area………. One can “feel” the peace and harmony of the garden, seeing and experiencing it – only by walking through it. Photos do not do it justice. WaterRun is an unforgettable destination in the Hudson Valley. Located in Garrison, N.Y. and close to the village of Cold Spring, across from West Point Military Academy. There is much culture, numerous hiking trails, golf courses, and marinas on the Hudson, restaurants, shops and clubs close by. About 35% of Garrison is protected land. WaterRun – a true trophy home.
