A Norman Jaffe-Designed Treasure in New York Seeks $5.6M

A modern architectural masterpiece designed by the late Norman Jaffe just hit the market in Esopus, New York. Although this home shines with his sculptural and contemporary vision of modern architecture, Jaffe also incorporated elements inspired by ancient Greek architecture. Designed in 1993 for the current owner, the abode is looking for its second owner with the price tag of $5.55 million.

Sitting on 20 acres of land, the home has stunning views and both gardens and a tennis court on the grounds. The exterior design consists of numerous rods, so is decorated with shadows throughout the day depending on where the sun is. Floor-to-ceiling windows on the upper level unveil the perfect amount of sunlight and immaculate vistas of the Hudson River. A huge balcony then makes indoor/outdoor living a breeze.

Looking to the interiors, the entrance reveals a jaw-dropping colonnade of pillars illuminated by ample skylights. These pillars nodding to Greek architecture run all throughout the home, even flanking the indoor swimming pool. Situated on the lower floor, five bedrooms accompany the spa-like pool and sauna.

Perched in the hills of Ulster County, this property is a serene retreat for the architecture lover. Its possibilities are also unique, as a separate garage is all set to become a live-in domestic apartment with plumbing and heating.

Heather Croner Real Estate Sotheby’s International Realty holds the listing, which offers a total of 9,355 square feet of living space and six bedrooms.
