Upstate New York has no shortage of interesting homes — just take a look at this enchanting stone beauty — and we’ve found another picturesque stunner located to our north. Tucked away in picturesque Garrison, NY is a modernist home that blends right in with its natural surroundings, thanks to the work of Victoria Meyers and hanrahanMeyers Architects.
China’s most provocative artist can add architect to his already extensive resume. Known around the world for his contemporary artwork and political activism, Ai Weiwei has also had a hand in designing this sprawling compound in upstate New York.
Located in bucolic Ancram — just a two-hour drive from New York City — the Tsai Residence was originally commissioned by a pair of Upper East Side art collectors. The 2,800-square-foot structure was completed in 2006 and put back on the market a few years later in 2013 for a whopping $4.25 million. But the hefty price tag comes with a unique distinction — it’s the only house in the United States that Ai has ever designed.
