Property descriptionStroll through beautiful grounds marked by stonewalls, stone foundations, stone terraces and stone steps of megalithic proportions, and intricately built stone swails and ponds, all of which were constructed during the Gilded Age. The manicured historic gardens were designed by Ferruccio Vitale, landscape architect for 19 th century tycoons. You will treat your senses in the absolute privacy of 6.8 acres and be immersed in the breathtaking, panoramic view of the Tuxedo Lake.
The house itself is an iconic design of the Internationa l or Modernist Style , an architectural style made famous in this country by notable architects Mies van der Rohe, and Philip Johnson. Mr. Bartolucci, who designed the house, was a well-known designer of the Modernist School whose furniture and graphic works have been bought by the Cooper Hewitt Museum. Indeed, Georgia O’Keefe was one of his ardent clients. What makes this property unique and particularly alluring is the contrast between the elegant modernist structure and the powerful stone foundations from the original mansion, which frame it.
The house is perfectly sited for waking up to the sunrise in the master bedroom, basking in warm afternoon light in the south-facing study and bedroom, and enjoying spectacular sunsets from the terrace, living room and dining room with their 14-foot floor-to-ceiling windows, and kitchen. There is an additional 800sf, for a total 3,400sf, which includes a conservatory room facing the original walled garden and fountain.
This is a unique opportunity to own an International Style house, in mint condition and in total privacy, built into magnificent grounds with western exposure overlooking Tuxedo Lake . Perfect for intimate or large-scale entertainment. Pristine.
14 Butternut Road, Tuxedo Park, New York, United States
