Tour an Award-Winning Circa-1977 Coastal Home in Mamaroneck Listed for $3.3M
Nestled upon the Long Island Sound in Mamaroneck, a picturesque 1977 modern has hit the market. Boxy and bright, the architectural home still holds original fixtures from when it was built while creating the perfect foundation for updates. Asking $3.299 million, the two-story waterfront house is decades old yet very on-trend today.
The home, located at 1241 Flagler Drive, sits on a quaint little cove, capturing views of Larchmont Harbor to one end and the Long Island Sound on the other. Its uniform taupe color on the exterior and light wood and white interiors help infuse the spaces with an easy coastal aesthetic. It doesn’t hurt that with glass everywhere, it seems the water is always in sight.
Ahead of its time, the architecture beckons to styles that actually became popular in the 80s. Namely, it displays clean lines, an open kitchen, and clear Brutalism, all trends that thrived in the next decade. In 1979, the home even won awards for its futuristic design. Coming full circle, isn’t it funny how it’s attractive for its subtly retro aspects now? If the next owner wants to lean into this 80s vibe in every way, fear not. C&G predicts that 80s interior trends will be coming back in 2023.
But, here, good bones set the scene for any buyer’s vision. Just look at how the 21’ ceilings in the living room usher in light to the open space. Overlooking the grand room is an upstairs loft office space, but one may not get much work done with beautiful, distracting nature all around.
The house offers three bedrooms and two bathrooms, so although slightly on the smaller side, it may fit perfectly for suburban empty nesters or those wanting a respite from New York City. Edith H. Roth of Houlihan Lawrence holds the listing.
