“My house was featured in a magazine, but to me it’s a jewel,” says the homeowner of this one-of-a-kind Modernist home in Chappaqua. Hard-pressed to think of any one favorite attribute, she remembers falling immediately in love with the two-acre property at first sight. In fact, she was so taken by the home’s private cul-de-sac setting, breathtaking views, and unique look and feel that she knew instantly it was the one when she set eyes on it in 1998. “I knew I wanted it before I even went upstairs,” she recalls. “It has incredible light and happiness, wonderful vibes, and just sings with nature. It’s a jewel of a tree house. The way it’s built lets you see the sun rising and setting from every angle. It just makes my heart sing.” The home’s unique architecture, which the homeowner describes as “modern with curves,” has the ideal space and flow for recreation and entertaining, both indoors and out. Thanks to the homeowners’ commitment and care in preserving the custom 1981 signature architecture, the completely upgraded kitchen and bathrooms (including a Carrera marble master bath) sync beautifully with the home’s original elements like the distinctive natural stonework and European piazza-style multiple descending patios.
