If you’ve got Eichler dreams and Fallingwater fantasies, but don’t live in state that’s abundant with mid-century modern architectural gems, it helps to be on the lookout for homes like this one. The Rockland County house on over an acre of woods in Wesley Hills, NY, now on the market for $488,000, was built in 1965 by Versland Rhodes, a popular builder of contemporary upstate homes of the day. The four-bedroom home is beautifully preserved, with details like a sunken living room, cherry wood cabinetry and hardwood and stone floors joining conveniences like central A/C. Like many modern homes, every effort was made to minimalize the border between inside and outdoors, so you get to enjoy a wraparound deck, tons of windows and scenic views.
Throughout the interior of the home’s main level you’ll find vaulted ceilings, classic post-and-beam construction and stone and hardwood floors. Each room offers a scenic view of the property, connecting indoors and out.
Cherry wood cabinetry defines the look of the home’s large eat-in kitchen, and dining space is plentiful.
You’re never far from the outdoors: three sets of sliding doors lead to the home’s wrap-around deck.
The home’s master bedroom has a private balcony, and, like the other rooms, is wrapped with windows.
An oversized circular staircase to the walk-out lower level leads to a spacious media/family room with/built-in shelving, a generously sized den with a wood-burning fireplace and a sliding door for walking right out to the patio. Also on this level is a laundry room and a half-bath.
The property also has a two-car garage and lots of driveway parking.
