THE ROBINS HOUSE, 1961 // ARCHITECTS DAVIS, BRODY, AND WISNIEWSKI
First time on market! Built in 1961 for original, forward thinking and creative couple, this mid-century modern offers elements that are truly unique. Designed by Davis, Brody and Wisniewski to flow with the curvature of the property, the owners requested a house that was unusual and exciting. The architects delivered. The redwood ceiling in the living room soars upward, cathedral like, anchored by an impressive two-story brick fireplace. The walls are an art statement themselves, built on the diagonal for architectural interest as well as functionality, preventing acoustical bounce and echoing. The angled windows, strategically placed, allows light to illuminate the interior in subtle but dramatic ways. An addition, added in 1971, added 3 more bedrooms and livings spaces to accommodate their growing family. This home is in need of complete restoration, but the end product will be a home like no other. A cathedral in the heart of Ardsley where coming home can be a spiritual experience.
