This dramatic, swooping home is the masterwork of Norman Jaffe, an architect known for this “romantic modernist” homes throughout the Hamptons. This stunner is located in Old Westbury, Long Island, at 15 Horseshoe Road. It was built in 1977 and chosen as one of the “best houses in America” in 1979. As Curbed put it, the unique two-story structure is “formed by several hulking volumes” which include a wood-clad, wedge-like roof, a glass-walled living space, and a stone facade and patios. It’s now on the market for $3.995 million.

Stanford White-designed chapel, once part of the Edwin D. Morgan estate, is now a home asking $3.25M, Fri, May 12, 2017
Talk about a living arrangement that’s holier than thou. This chapel is part of the former Edwin Denison Morgan III estate in Old Westbury, Long Island. The impressive estate, complete with gardens and fountains, was designed by the great Stanford White in the late-19th century, and now its chapel is on the market for $3.25 million. (It’s a price decrease from last year, when it hit the market for $4.3 million.) Amazingly, the chapel was once connected to the estate’s other buildings by tunnels, though it was converted a while back to a four-bedroom home. Cathedral ceilings, stained-glass windows designed by John La Farge–the stunning space has got everything, not to mention a heated gunite pool and putting green outside.
