Because I LOVE modernist homes this one caught my eye immediately as I was scrolling through Dwell.com. It’s one heckuva stunner. And, it’s for sale at the bargain-basement price of $4.95MM.

Located an hour north of Manhattan in the hamlet of Garrison, New York, this residence, inspired by midcentury modern design, was designed by architect and Harvard professor Toshiko Mori, who founded New York-based Toshiko Mori Architect. According to Dwell.com writer Jennifer Baum Lagdameo, “The home’s current owner wanted a property that deeply connected with the natural beauty that surrounds it. After reaching out to Mori on the whim, they created this one-of-a-kind home with an emphasis on sustainability, green construction techniques, the use of local materials, and geothermal heat. Each wing was designed to maximize views in all four directions—capturing the drama of the Hudson River and Storm King Mountain to the west, Bear Mountain to the north, the Appalachian Trail to the east, and breathtaking forests to the south. With floor-to-ceiling glazing and bright white interiors, the home is rich with opportunities to contemplate the environment.”
