At first glance, the backyard of this house looks like an island resort tucked away in the jungle. But it’s actually located just 45 minutes outside NYC in Dobbs Ferry. The mid-century-modern home was built in 1961 by architect Ferdinand Gottlieb (best known for his work on the interior of the original Rizzoli Bookstore on Fifth Avenue) as his personal residence. Now listed for $1,450,000, the four-bedroom home has 12-foot arched glass windows that overlook the Hudson River and the Palisades, as well as a salt-water pool and landscaped patio.

The front of the house is surrounded by a bluestone courtyard with additional outdoor space.

Inside, the highlight of the home is definitely the arched cedar ceilings, which were built by a Norwegian shipwright, as well as the fieldstone fireplace.

All the rooms on this level open to the lovely terrace.

The kitchen is very modern with Reform Copenhagen cabinetry, custom-wood shelving, Aurea quartz countertops, and a Bertazzoni range.

The master bedroom is more private but still gets incredible light.

There are three more bedrooms and three more full bathrooms.

The lower level would make a great nanny or guest suite, as it has its own bath, kitchenette, and entrance.

Outside, the saltwater pool is surrounded by a bluestone patio and plenty of room for lounging and dining.

The home is conveniently located within walking distance to the towns of Hastings and Dobbs Ferry, as well as to Metro-North.
