Art As Architecture

Art As Architecture

Retreat to the Origami House, defining art as architecture. Set on 15+ private acres, the property borders a nature reserve. Only nature and its inhabitants accompany as you ascent up the private lane’s drive punctuated by a fruit orchard and passing by the property’s lighted tennis court before arriving at the intimate courtyard to the main residence. This 8,500+ square foot home is the design of the well-known architectural firm Leroy Street Studio, based in Manhattan. Sophisticated and comfortable country living describes this tranquil oasis.

The home’s architectural design is a mathematical masterpiece where individual cubes appear to fold into each other in intricate ceiling and window elevations, only to reveal large open spaces that invite nature’s energy inside. The home personifies the art of the angle where ceilings and skylights meet expansive walls that are ideally suited for the art collector. Anchoring the west side and inspired by I.M. Pei’s Pyramid is the Glass Great Room. The three exposure room opens onto an outdoor terrace to one of the home’s two waterfalls, part of a Koi sanctuary that can also be viewed and enjoyed through water channels and a deep dive in the home’s main gallery. Flexible spaces for conversion to additional bedrooms possible

Gardens, spacious lawns, lighted tennis court, multiple terraces and a dipping pool. The offering includes four parcels totally 15.57 acres. Total taxes for the four parcels are $74,650.
