Call it the Don Draper effect: Mid-Century Modern homes are as popular as ever. Sought after for their bright, open living space marked by large windows and natural construction materials, these striking residences are as stylish as they are functional. Our Scarsdale brokerage recently two listed exceptionally swoon-worthy examples of note.
8 Overlook Road | $2,895,000
This rare mint condition home, sited on an almost-acre along a highly coveted street in Scarsdale's Fox Meadow section, was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright disciple Edgar Tafel with classic Usonian sensibilities. It was meticulously restored in 1997 with the help of a preservation architect, Linda Yowell, and implements modern retrofits that include a three-zone HVAC system and full-house generator. The perennial gardens and custom landscaping provide a serene setting for this special home.
2 Split Tree Road | $2,895,000
Boasting Scandinavian-inspired minimalist interiors, this restored rectilinear Modernist, built in 1950, effuses uniquely urban sensibilities with a Tribeca meets the Hamptons motif. Floor-to-ceiling sliding doors providing a seamless transition to the home's park-like backyard, which includes a pool and pool house, hot tub and lush, gently sloping grounds. Sleek and surrounded by nature, it's everything today's style-conscious, progressive-minded buyer craves in a name-brand suburb known for keeping its big city credentials close at hand.
