For Sale: Mid-century modernism lives in City Island. Built in 1958 by the architectural firm of Adams and Woodbridge, this three bedroom water front home is a rare find. Priced at a reasonable (for New York City) $1,249,000.
Submission: Old Tappan, New Jersey. A Frank Lloyd Wright inspired by Talesin Architect Louise Dees-Porch, his first female apprentice. A rustic house for a rustic site. Rough Materials and low eaves that almost hug the ground give this home its sense of belonging on 1.19 acres. Home is built of rough cypress siding and concrete block. Inside, the block was left exposed and concrete floor used in all rooms. Dees-Porch created a home that is virtually careproof. Front walk leads under wide, open roof overhang. Living area of house opens directly to large garden. Exposed rafters continue the roof overhang to give it more depth. Master Bedroom Garden is sheltered on all sides. High and low walls, hide it from neighbors and open it to privacy of owners land. Featuring 3 bedrooms and 1.1 baths this one-of-a-kind is a must see.
Still waiting to be rescued.
For Sale: Modernism lives in Englewood, NJ. Designed by noted Hobart Betts, who actually lived in Englewood as a child, this massive 5-bedroom home is a cacophony of curves and squares.
This home contains many of Betts’ classic elements including asymmetrical windows, simple geometric surfaces, and angled clerestories bringing daylight inside. Betts’ minimalist designs were quite popular for a short period and he won four P/A design awards in a seven-year period, from 1966 through 1972.
While his work fell out of fashion in the decades that followed, we think his simple style still resonates well today. Enjoy!
For Sale: For $1.5 million dollars we think this Philip Johnson designed 3-bedroom home in New Canaan, CT is a steal.

Unencumbered floor to ceiling glass panel walls and doors from every room which lead to the outdoors, hardwood floors, updated kitchen and baths inside. Great find.
