A Paul Rudolph-designed residence in Westchester County, NY is listed for $5.995 million.
During his celebrated career, Paul Rudolph designed such landmark structures as the Yale Art and Architecture Building (1963), the Milam Residence (completed in 1961), and the unfinished Government Service Center of Boston (1966-1971.) Shortly after designing the Yale structure, he served as Dean of the Yale Architecture School for 6 years before returning to private practice. When his signature Brutalist style fell out of favor, Rudolph, who began his career in Florida as a residential architect, turned to designing the glass-skinned corporate towers that had become popular in the 1970’s.
This home was designed by the architect in the late 1980’s and has never been on the market before. Sited on 4 acres in Westchester County – less than 45 minutes by train from Grand Central – the 6 bed, 6.5 bath home has 7370 square feet of living space.
The sprawling interior features floor-to-ceiling windows, skylights, and covered breezeways to open the house up to natural light and views of the leafy grounds. Other interior amenities include cathedral ceilings, a 3,000 bottle wine cellar, and a powder room.
The rear elevation of the home reveals the unique cantilevered rooms that project from the upper level of the house, as in the bathroom shown below. The extensive grounds provide plenty of room to roam, a pool, and a lighted tennis court.
Rudolph, who was born in 1918 and trained at the Harvard Graduate School of design under Bauhaus founder Walter Gropious, died in 1997.
