New York City, Aug 25, 2020 (Issuewire.com) - A Paul Rudolph designed mid-century modern home in Larchmont, New York is in the market for sale.
Located 20 miles north to New York City, this landmark architecture originally completed in 1958. The Edersheim family, homeowners at the time, commissioned an iconic architect Paul Rudolph for renovation in 1982 and 1991, who added to this compound the signature designs of white canopies at the entrance, a freeform guest house, bold interior designs, indoor and outdoor swimming pools and a screened porch. In 2010, the Joseph family bought this home.
"I always thought of this as my forever home where my kids would grow up. Architecture and modern design have been one of my passions, and we planned a complete gut renovation into a luxury green home. It was a true labor of love." The Josephs have spent years to transform this mid-century sensation into an energy-efficient modern luxury home. Today, the house is installed with 102 solar panels, providing 27KW electricity as an almost "zero" energy home. With high-efficiency geothermal radiant heating and cooling, air filtration and humidification control systems. The house maintains the same level of temperature and humidity in both a snowstorm as well as a hot summer day.
"Mid Century Modern homes are incredibly hard to turn into green homes, because of the materials used at the time of their construction." In order to achieve this transformation, the walls and roofs were reinsulated and air-sealed, windows replaced with high insulation double pane glasses. The Josephs kept in touch with foundations that preserve Paul Rudolph's legacy to ensure that the modifications would be in line with the legendary architect's style and design for the house.
The home has been transformed to fit a luxury lifestyle in addition to being an eco-friendly green home. Two saltwater swimming pools, 21 jet jacuzzis, sauna room, gym, media room, and a detached suite built cohesively on the compound. It is also tech-savvy with a built-in Sonos AV system and central-controlled LED lightings throughout the house. "It is a luxurious 9000 sqft Manhattan loft on a 2.5 acres lot with an indoor-outdoor lifestyle you can't have in the city."
This house is listed through Houlian Lawrence, listing price $5.6 Million. For more information please visit: www.862fenimore.com
