Following examples designed by the architect in Wisconsin and the Bay Area of California, a Frank Lloyd Wright Usonian in New York appeared for sale this year. The property, known as the Socrates Zaferiou House, was completed around 1960, and contains four bedrooms and three baths in its 2,619 sq. ft.
The house’s location is spectacular for the forest-amenable; 2.5 acres near the Hudson River and across from Tarrytown. It is situated within Clausland Mountain State Park, which adds over 500 acres of woodland to the property’s buffer space.
The home’s exterior details include a carport, flat roof, and strong ornamental horizontal lines that emphasize its design. Inside the home, details common to Frank Lloyd Wright residential interiors include wood paneling, half-vaults, and earth tones. A long hallway between public and private spaces is the primary evocation of space and continuation, while the fireplace in the living room has the grand, open spirit Wright frequently employed when designing this primary source of domestic comfort.
The grounds are given over to lawn and forest, allowing the house to fully occupy its landscape without distraction.More infoFor more information, contact Richard Ellis and Brandon Wagner of Ellis Sotheby’s Intl Realty
