For Sale: Edward Durell Stone Townhouse in Manhattan, 1956 (E. 64th Street)
One of the most architecturally important townhouses on the Upper East Side is the Edward Durell Stone Townhouse at 130 East 64th Street. Stone renovated the house by extending its façade forward and replacing the original façade with 3 stories of floor-to-ceiling windows separated by limestone bands. Stone then covered the entire 4-story façade with a concrete grille of decorative circles and squares. The house was granted Landmark Status in 1981. In 2006 the present owner donated a façade easement to the Trust for Architectural Easements, protecting the façades from future alterations.
Priced at $9.95 million.
Available through Sotheby’s NYC

Went to the open house and it is stunning.
For Sale: We’ve received a bunch of emails regarding this Alfred Bush designed home in Croton on Hudson, which was his own home and has been on the market for some time. The home was built in 1962 and reflects many Frank Lloyd Wright design elements (Bush was a student of Wright), including a double parabolic roof that Wright himself never actually used. Inside, things are equally interesting, with formed concrete and custom built furniture. Sadly the whole house is in some serious disrepair and is desperately in need of rehabilitation. Is there someone out there up to the task? Would make a great home.
For Sale: Echoes of Fallingwater abound in this handsome modern home in Armonk, New York, which is currently on the market for $1.4 million. Designed by David Henken, an apprentice of Frank Lloyd Wright, this home was built in 1970 and is perched over Cobamong Lake. The home is full of impeccable details and takes full advantage of its secluded location. Enjoy.
