This modernist upstate riverfront home in the hamlet of Garrison, NY, asking $7.9 million, comes with a deep water dock on the Hudson, a guest house and a “play house” that looks like a Greek temple (h/t Curbed). The nine-acre estate is located just over an hour away from New York City. The 3,777-square-foot main house is a boxy, modernist dwelling painted dark green, with windows in every direction.

Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright’s disciple Edgar Tafel—who earned his chops working on some of Wright’s most famous properties, including Fallingwater—this nearly 4,000-square-foot residence in Garrison is beautifully sited on six acres and comes with sweeping views of the Hudson River. Mid-century modern details prevail inside while the “zen-like” landscape design includes a free-form pool and whirlpool hot tub nestled among sculpted rock outcroppings. The Putnam County property is now on the market for a cool $3.55 million.

Tucked away amid the dirt roads and country atmosphere of Garrison, NY, fifty miles from Manhattan in Putnam county, this 1840s brick carriage house at 65 Indian Brook Road is the kind of home you rarely find in either city or hamlet. The 4,000 square-foot, three-bedroom home (h/t Circa), asking $1.295 million, has open loft-like proportions, hand hewn beams, a cozy wood-burning stove and high ceilings, with modern details like floor-to-ceiling glass, central air and a gunite pool off the back patio.  Take the tour, and check out the pool

Architect Sharon Davies' new home at the Old Albany Post Road

The Old Albany Post Road is a 6.6-mile historic supply route in Philipstown, New York and one of the oldest unpaved roads still in use. One of the most charming places through which it winds is a hamlet called Garrison, where NYC-based architect Sharon Davis has had a house for more than 20 years. The visionary first bought the 70-acre plot to protect its land from developers, but ended up building herself a new home that is both cozy and modern, as well as an homage to the historic nature of the old road.
