Norman Jaffe opened his first architecture practice in Bridgehampton in 1973, soon becoming famous for the many contempory residences he designed in the Hamptons. Throughout his 35-year career, he designed more than 600 projects, many of them notable for their sculptural forms, early inclusion of passive solar design, and glass and wood construction. This home in Old Westbury, which he designed early on in 1977, checks all three of those boxes, and is currently on the market for $3,595,000. It sits on more than two acres, with several decks and patios and a salt water pool, and is nearly 7,000 square feet with six bedrooms, a home movie theater, and even a spa.

Located in Nassau County, the home is in the affluent town of Old Westbury. It’s just a 35-minute drive to Manhattan and right near Old Westbury Gardens.

The drama begins as soon as you enter. The foyer has a 30-foot ceiling, skylight, curved walls, angled spaces, and stone floors.

From there, the grand living room is completely encased in glass but still feels warm thanks to contemporary pinewood ceilings and a large stone hearth.

Off the living room is the first patio.

The kitchen not only has a huge center island but space for a breakfast nook, too.

Also on the first floor is the master suite, which has a gas fireplace and access to a private deck. There’s a marble en-suite bathroom and dressing room, as well as an office space that opens to the deck, too. There’s also a second en-suite bedroom that has access to the deck.

There are three more en-suite bedrooms on the second floor, and on the mezzanine level, you’ll find a gym with an incredible glass ceiling.

On the lower level, there’s the media room, wine storage, an additional bedroom/bathroom, large laundry room, living room with a pool table, and a spa room that has a sauna, steam room, and bathroom.

Outside, there is plenty of space for entertaining on the deck and down near the pool. There’s also an attached two-car garage.
