Revived Midcentury Modern Designed by Legend Paul Rudolph Seeks $4.9M
Tucked unassumingly along the New Haven line in Mamaroneck, the village of Larchmont sits just a 45-minute train ride away from Grand Central. In the middle of the 20th century, architects were drawn to quiet areas like this outside of New York City, with Richard Neutra and Marcel Breuer leaving their mark with residential creations. Famed modernist architect Paul Rudolph, who designed the Yale Art & Architecture building, was also part of this trend. In 1958, Rudolph put his skills on full display by designing this home at 862 Fenimore Road. Now on the market after a gut renovation earlier this year, the midcentury modern marvel wants $4.9 million.
That price tag, which is down from the $5.6 million the property was listed for first this summer, includes the 8,968-square-foot main house with its 7 bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms, detached apartment, guest house, and the 2.49-acre lot on which they all stand. Taken to the next level of luxury, it even has a wet and dry sauna.
An architecture aficionado’s dream, the spread offers artistic modern vision hand in hand with a slew of modern amenities brought in by the revamp. Eco-friendly updates including solar panels, geothermal radiant energy, and energy-efficient windows paint the home green. Then, an indoor and outdoor pool means it needn’t be summer to enjoy a refreshing dip.
Truly unique and with too many details to list, this home is a piece of history with all the luxuries of the 21st century. Katie Becker McLoughlin of Houlihan Lawrence has the listing.
