This unique home tucked into a gorgeous wooded landscape in Bronxville, NY, was built in 1950 by architect and Frank Lloyd Wright apprentice David Henken in the iconic Usonian style. A complete renovation by renowned architect Markus Dochantschi in 2012 modernized and expanded the 5,500-square-foot home; Dochantschi, founder of StudioMDA, is a former director of Zaha Hadid Architects and specializes in minimalist, functional design. The property is on the market for $4.995 million.

The home sits on .65 private acres with hilltop views. The newly-added innovative design adds energy-efficient windows, radiant heat floors, a new roof, plumbing and electrical and high-performance insulation throughout.

Exquisite finishes, sparkling new baths, and a sleek, contemporary kitchen bring this six-bedroom home into the 21st century while it remains a modern masterpiece.  Windows everywhere mean the home’s natural surroundings are just a glance away–integrated with Wright’s signature style–and the interior is bathed in sunlight.

Lovers of fall foliage won’t need to look much further for a bounty of seasonal color. The property is also within easy walking distance to the train, village, and schools.
