DJ and entrepreneur Moby
has just listed his Pound Ridge midcentury modern home for $1.3 million. David Henken, an apprentice of iconic architect Frank Lloyd Wright, designed the angular home in 1956. Moby, who will use the profits from the sale to support various causes, scooped up the property because of its proximity to his hometown of Darien, Connecticut.“Oddly, a lot of midcentury modern houses in Westchester are quite dark,” Moby told Curbed
, who first reported the sale, “and this house has big soaring panes of glass, so it’s really beautiful and bright.” The escape sits on nearly 2 acres of land, and features a zen garden and pool for an equal dose of tranquility and fun. Mahogany interiors ensure that the indoors blend seamlessly with the natural beauty right outside.The home also takes full advantage of its spacious, 3,162-square-foot floor plan. The most impressive spaces are the great room, a marvel with vaulted ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows, and the home office, which is built around a natural rock formation. Other noteworthy rooms include a gym on the ground floor and a stunning master suite, complete with its own spa bath.With all of these fantastic features, it may seem puzzling as to why Moby would want to unload the property. “I’m rarely there,” he stated simply in an Instagram post, before declaring his intention to donate money from the sale to the various causes he champions.For more information on this architectural treasure, Muffin Dowdle of Ginnel Real Estate
