Pound Ridge, NY, USA
126 South Bedford Road
Extraordinary retreat located on one of Pound Ridge's most coveted roads, this Modernist home is magnificently sited on the highest elevation of its 5-acre property. Inspired by Isamu Noguchi's stone sculptures and translucent Akari lamps, the architecture features stone, metal, and translucent walls to capture soft light. Walls of glass throughout frame the Zen-like landscape. The two and one half story entry showcases a staircase that wraps around a curved wall and emits light at night. The open, airy design features the bedrooms on the lower floor with the public spaces (living/dining) up above. The fitness/meditation room adjoins the living and entry foyer via the kitchen and great rooms. A loft space is perfect as an in-home office. Enjoy seasonal views and rights (skating, kayaking) to Blue Heron Pond. Level land with rock outcroppings and stone walls bordering 150-acre preserve. Privately set yet convenient to schools, restaurants, shopping, trains. An hour to midtown Manhattan.
