Those who appreciate nature will surely value this unique contemporary home built along the water’s edge of Ten Mile River in Wingdale, N.Y. The picturesque town, located just minutes from the Litchfield County, Conn. border, enjoys a bucolic setting of nearby farmland and distant, rolling hills. Clearly taking note of these elements of nature and surrounding views, award-winning architect Eduardo Faxas flawlessly captures them in this masterfully constructed dwelling, which is now for sale and represented by Kent agent Ira Goldspiel at $1,285,000.
Eduardo Faxas has teamed up with numerous acclaimed, modern architects throughout his career, and today holds an applauded reputation in the world of contemporary architecture. With many notable projects under his belt, Faxes leads a tremendously successful, award-winning firm. Frank Lloyd Wright and other impressionable modern architects greatly inspire his work, which focuses mainly on precision, balance and a diligent search for proper proportions and materials.
One of these carefully constructed Faxas creations stands tall at 198 Dog Tail Corners, a modern home with sleek finishes, large expanses of windows and a clear movement of space that welcomes Mother Nature’s presence into nearly every room. Resting peacefully on 4.25 acres of riverfront land overlooking nothing but pure, rural beauty, the four-bedroom, three-bath home features two large windows masterfully joined at the corner of the house to freely extend a visual flow of space. This technique effectively creates the illusion of being one with the outdoors. To add to this nature-embracing environment, the residence also has over 2,200 square feet of decks, porches and patios to enjoy the surrounding vistas.
The home’s exceptional qualities continue with built-in cabinets, furniture and shelving, window seats, vaulted ceilings and other decorative details. The home also features a well-equipped gallery kitchen with additional cooking space in the spacious family room, which contains a fireplace and raised hearth ideal for entertaining guests. The great room is yet another alluring place to gather, and includes a second stone fireplace and wet bar. On a smaller scale, cozy nooks with built-in window seats provide the opportunity to unwind with a good book, while a larger dining room facing the residence’s scenic grounds completes the main level.
Upstairs, a master bedroom spans the entire width of the house. This impressive space boasts ample windows and one-of-a-kind features, including a recovered porthole from a ship, which has been transformed for decorative use. Set into the wall, this authentic piece overlooks the living room through an eave of the vaulted ceiling, adding even more character to an already charismatic home.
“A beautiful balance of nature meets modern architecture encompasses this one-of-a-kind Dutchess County property,” said Goldspiel. “Faxas’ impeccable, flowing designs leave no dead ends—only endless views.”
The property additionally features a finished basement with a climate-controlled wine cellar, as well as a separate, two-car garage with an abundance of storage space.
