Features include hardwood floors, sliding glass doors that lead outside, and a kitchen with a separate dining area. We love the glass brick detail near the front entrance and the floor-to-ceiling concrete fireplace in the living room.
Sited on an acre of land overlooking Gardiner’s Bay, the house spans 6,000 square feet in size with six bedrooms and six and a half bathrooms. Originally built in 1980, it was totally renovated in 2008.
It came on the market for $2.9 million earlier this year in June before cutting its price down to $2.35 million a month later. In August, the house went into contract, and earlier this week the deal closed.
With high ceilings, walls of windows that look out to the bay, a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, and a sunken conversation pit, there are unique and desirable qualities that this midcentury home has to offer
Outside, new homeowners will arrive at the hedged 0.91-acre property through a gated entry and approach the cottage. Unfortunately the property doesn’t have a pool, but there is a meditation gazebo and lounging and dining space in the backyard.
The restored 1,000-square-foot home was part of noted architect Richard Bender’s "Amenity" project in the early ’60s, which consisted of a collection of cottages on 20 acres of private land surrounded by woodlands.
Though the home is a bit small with just 1,300 square feet, tenants won’t be needing much space as the rental is only available for two weeks at the end of this summer, from August 21 to September 4. asking $20,000.
Originally built in 1945, the cottage has received renovations, and it now features hardwood floors, white walls, window seats in the living room and dining room, beamed ceilings, and open storage in the kitchen.
