For Sale: This handsome five-bedroom mid-century home in Glenn Ridge, NJ is on the market and is a rare find indeed. While Glenn Ridge might be home to one of the few Frank Lloyd Wright designed homes in the tristate area (an even rarer find), mid-century charm like this is hard to find in suburban towns like Glenn Ridge and Montclair. This home, which was originally built in the late ‘50, has been nicely updated and features walls of glass and a great open floor-plan. There is also an open house this Sunday April 13th. Enjoy!

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
