Designed by the late Charles Gwathmey of Gwathmey Siegel & Associates, the Cohn Residence was the recipient of an AIANY design award when it was constructed back 1972. At the time, the four-bedroom's cylindrical design set a "provocative precedent". Today, though, it just looks dated.
Now, some four decades later, the home originally created for Maurice and Marilyn Cohn has hit the market with an ask of $11.9M. While it offers a great many amenities?a sleek kitchen with bespoke cabinetry, dining area, media room, radiant heat flooring, and top-of-the-line systems throughout?this will most likely have a date with a wrecking ball if and when someone buys it. The home may have history, but its value now lies in the 1 acre lot and 220 feet of ocean frontage.
