New, 4 comments

A mid-century glass house from 1963 just got a contemporary update

What was once a mid-century glass house from the 1960s has been totally rebuilt and modernized, drawing inspiration from Philip Johnson’s Glass House. Though not totally transparent like Johnson’s iconic 1949 home, the contemporary structure at 137 Copeces Lane features floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the main living spaces to give a similar effect.

The home spans 1,000 square feet with two bedrooms and two bathrooms over a half-acre of land. There are 9-foot ceilings throughout the space, wraparound windows, sliding glass doors, and mahogany decking for indoor-outdoor living.

Outside, new homeowners will enjoy a gunite pool, outdoor dining space, a barbecue, and patios.

The collaboration that brought this home to fruition have several artistic connections. According to the Corcoran listing, Iver Loftving—the Swedish architect behind the development of the home—works at Philip Johnson’s Architecture Studio and has worked on the Seagram Building.

His partner, Athos Zacharias, was the studio assistant to names like Grace Hartigan and Lee Krasner.

Represented by Corcroan Group Real Estate agents, Yorgos Tsibiridis and Alicia DeFronze, 137 Copeces Lane is listed for $1,295,000.
