This mid-century modern home was designed by Carlos Joseph Alvaré in 1966. Alvaré worked under the tutelage of Louis Kahn and was awarded “Best Design” by the American Institute of Architects (AIA) for his design at St. Joseph’s College in 1961. The spectacular stone and wood home sits on over 11 sylvan acres with breathtaking hillside views, walking trails, and a heated swimming pool. Original architect-designed details have been preserved and maintained in this 4 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home, including warm walnut paneling, bluestone floors, and custom built-ins and cabinetry. The entry’s flagstone floors offer a visual and material contrast to the warm wood paneling throughout the home. The foyer flows into the spacious living room with custom shelving and original parquet floors. The eat-in kitchen enjoys a hillside vista. Adjacent to the kitchen is a laundry/mud room with access to a large stone-walled bluestone patio overlooking the pool. This space could easily be converted to a butler’s kitchen for stress-free entertaining and al fresco dining. Adjacent to the mudroom are the powder room, a large pantry and a sewing room. The formal dining room features walls of walnut paneling, bluestone floors, wooded views, and access to the screened porch. Its wall of hidden walnut cabinetry is an entertainer’s dream. The walnut-paneled library with stone inglenook fireplace and built-in bookcases is intimate and inviting. There are four bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom and walk-in closet with custom shelving. The hall bath features original dual vanities and an oversized shower with exposed stone walls. Unparalleled craftsmanship is evident in the millwork detail throughout the home. The 20” exposed stone walls are both aesthetic and contribute to the home’s thermal mass construction. The architect designed a gutterless system with gravel beds for drainage so the home enjoys a leafy canopy without the hassles of cleaning gutters. Additional features include a temperature controlled wine cellar, double zone AC, dual hot water heaters, and a 20KW automatic emergency power generation system. Attic with high ceilings runs the full length of the house. The heated European style pool has a convenient electric retractable cover. A detached 3-car garage offers additional storage above. This property is a true oasis where one sees more horses than cars. Ride, walk, or bike on the many nearby trails. The property is under Act 319 Clean and Green. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to purchase an architecturally significant mid-century modern home unlike any other. A truly unique and well-preserved estate that couldn’t be replicated for the offering price. Enjoy one-level living and unparalleled views in a modern classic!
