The Mechner Residence, 1969
Come experience not only an extraordinarily designed residence, additionally enjoy a home set atop quite possibly one of the highest viewpoints in Chappaqua. Commissioned by the Mechner family in 1969, architect John Koster worked closely with present owners to develop a property like no other. Sited on 8.86 wooded acres with vintage log cabin and sculptural stone outcroppings inspired a multifaceted built home which now offers an incredible opportunity to renew an envisioned masterpiece. An architectural smooth curved arc ceiling immediately excites the senses and draws you into an inviting, flowing living space complimented by a bank of windows arranged to capture the surrounding dynamic landscape. Juxtaposed to this stunning view is a rising wall of glass looking into a one-of-a-kind resplendent domed indoor pool oasis anchoring the home and presenting an exceptionally private retreat. The original open living concept is immediately present with the kitchen, awaiting its reawakening, flowing with ease to a generous gathering room with deck for memorable family and friends indoor-outdoor entertaining. The upstairs of the two-level bedroom wing incorporates a primary bedroom suite with dressing room, its own office and a plumbed bath waiting a new owner’s vision. Additionally, there are two bedrooms which share a bath. Stepping into the lower level, with open living space for media and play, smartly complimenting the additional bedrooms and baths. Design. Structure. Nature. Let one’s creative spirit soar!
