Dramatic Modernist Home on Serene Wooded Property

Image Source: Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage

When do you think this home was built? In the middle of the 20th century, during the height of the modernist movement? That was our guess too, but it turns out this striking modern gem was constructed in 1999 using the best principles of modern architecture.

New York-based architecture firm Ogawa/Depardon built the home with two main goals in mind: a dedication to superior craftsmanship and an eye for aesthetic harmony between design, construction and environment. Set on 6.5 beautifully wooded acres overlooking a private pond, the residence features large expanses of glass that introduce natural light and landscape into the interiors, making the home feel like an extension of its surroundings.

In addition to the vast glass walls, natural materials reinforce the home's connection with its landscape in nearly every room, from the soaring stone fireplace in the living room to the gleaming Brazilian walnut floors in the master bedroom.
