Did you know that modern architecture began to appear as early as the 1850s as an evolution from structuralism? Modern architecture was made famous by Frank Lloyd Wright, but all great minds take inspiration from those who came before them… Frank Lloyd Wrights’ mentor was a man named Louis Sullivan.
For those who made these beautiful homes possible, we say thank you! This week three of those homes are 34 Country Club Lane, 522 Grand Avenue, and 646 Long Hill Road. The architects thought intentionally about design. These homes are one of a kind; like living in a work of art.
If you are curious about one or more of these homes, we would love to schedule a showing. Give us a call!
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.

552 Grand Avenue
Welcome to this mid-century modern dream home. Designed by the Frank Lloyd Wright understudy Frank Edward Dushin, this gorgeous home offers spectacular year round Hudson River views, a sprawling and open floor plan, cathedral ceilings, and built in storage that is seamlessly integrated into the construction of the home. From the moment the front door opens, you are greeted with gorgeous views that come through large wall sized windows that span the four walls of the home including the living room, the dining room, the family room, and the main bedroom. Each of the 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms offer their own unique charm to the home. Between the two separate sunken tubs, the rows of closets and hidden storage, the large windows and unparalleled views, and the natural light that pours through the many skylights throughout the home, no design detail had been overlooked. Even light switches and wall outlets that inhabit the space have been custom designed and match the styling of the house. The interior walls are welcoming to any decorator, as they offer ample space to hang any beloved piece. The negative space between the walls act as a design element as well, as it constructs beautiful flowing paths and corridors. The charm of the interior extends to the exterior, as the home is nestled beautifully on 2.5 acres of lovely landscaping and mature trees. The gorgeous long, winding driveway that leads into a parking circle accents the sharp edges and straight lines of the structure. Behind the home sits a patio that extends the length of the house that gives breathtaking views of the river, mountains, and the grounds. In front of the patio lies a lush green space that can accommodate many outdoor activities. Overall, this home is the epitome of mid-century modern beauty.
