A study in lines and curves

Crisp lines and lush curves combine effortlessly at Skyview, a spectacular Modernist home set high on a hilltop in Chappaqua.

Highly sculptural in its architecture, the house seems to float above its surrounding 60 acres, where the natural contours of the land provide a tranquil counterpoint to the chic and stylish residence.

Inside, the home is a study in contrasts. The clean-lined aesthetic displayed throughout the residence offers a striking backdrop for sophisticated living and entertaining while a profusion of rounded walls adds a sensuous flair that is delightful to find in the modern design. Whether it’s hard angles or soft curves you prefer, there’s no doubt that this residence is all about glamour, and its combination of window-wrapped interiors and expansive terraces is designed to dazzle.

Outside, the allure of Skyview continues with a pond, garden pools, fountains and recreational amenities that rival those of a five-star resort.

A gorgeous pool is partnered with a grand terrace and pool house that offer the space to entertain hundreds. There’s even a deck atop the pool house, the perfect spot to take in the sublime views that stretch out unobstructed over the rolling countryside.

A tennis court, ballfield and meandering walking trails add to the estate’s many pleasures, which include a restored 18th-century guest house that is original to the property, a staff apartment and multiple garages designed for the serious collector.

A gated entry and full property fencing ensure the utmost in privacy and security of the setting, which also offers the potential for subdivision if the new owners prefer a smaller site.

Regardless of the acreage, Skyview is a very special place, a truly breathtaking estate setting in which you can relax, breathe and feel at home.
