Contemporary residence overlooks Ten Mile River and views of the distant hills in rural Dutchess County, N.Y.
Wingdale, N.Y. – March 2, 2016 – William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty announced today that the firm has listed a unique, contemporary home in Wingdale, N.Y., located just minutes from the Litchfield County, Conn. border. The residence was constructed by award-winning architect Eduardo Faxas to strategically capture views of the property’s adjacent river, nearby farmland and distant hills. Kent agent Ira Goldspiel has the listing, which is offered at $1,285,000.
Throughout his career, Eduardo Faxas, a native of Cuba, has joined forces with various acclaimed modern architects, as well as gained inspiration from the work of Frank Lloyd Wright. Today, Faxas holds a highly applauded reputation in the world of contemporary architecture, and has completed several notable projects with his award-winning firm. His work most predominately embodies precision, balance and a diligent search for the proper proportions and materials.
198 Dog Trail Corners is one of Faxas’ uniquely designed masterpieces, boasting a contemporary style that encompasses large windows, sleek finishes and a clear movement of space to embrace the property’s surrounding outdoor views from all of its main rooms. The thoughtfully crafted home, which rests on 4.25 acres of tranquil land overlooking picturesque views of Ten Mile River and beyond, includes two large windows joined at the corner of the house to create an extended visual flow of space and the illusion of being outdoors. The residence additionally enjoys over 2,200 square feet of decks, porches and patios.
Inside the four-bedroom, three-bath home, unusual features include numerous built-in cabinets, furniture and shelving, window seats, vaulted ceilings and other decorative details. The residence’s sleek gallery kitchen is well equipped, while additional cooking space can be found in the large family room, which also includes a fireplace and raised hearth. The great room contains yet another stone fireplace, as well as a wet bar and other features ideal for entertaining. A cozy nook with built-in window seating and larger dining room overlooking the scenic grounds complete the main level.
On the second floor, a master bedroom spans the entire width of the house, boasting expansive windows, as well as a recovered porthole from a ship, uniquely set into the wall. This authentic, decorative piece looks down into the living room through an eave of the vaulted ceiling.
“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.”
A finished basement with a climate-control wine cellar, as well as a separate, two-car garage with ample room for storage complete the property.
