Combining inspired architecture with a setting that is beyond compare, this unique property is cloistered on two private acres in the prestigious Whippoorwill estate area.
Enveloped in lush natural beauty high above sparkling Wampus Lake, the home enjoys some of the most sublime water views in the entire region.
The beauty of the setting is matched only by the special residence, a retreat for all seasons that was originally built for Juan Trippe, the visionary founder of Pan American Airways and famed world traveler. Blending the hallmarks of iconic mid-century architecture with the quiet beauty of Japanese design, the home is infused with an air of peace and tranquility, both inside and out.
A heated pool with a cabana, a Har-Tru tennis court, koi pond, waterfall and sunny terraces also share the remarkable setting, where privacy and tranquility are simply unparalleled.
Throughout the sophisticated one-level home, elegant simplicity reigns thanks to dramatic floor-to-ceiling glass walls that introduce the natural light and the surrounding natural beauty into the home’s expansive living space.
A grandly scaled living room, inviting dining room, professionally equipped kitchen and family room offer unrivaled entertaining spaces, while warmly inviting private quarters, including a large office, provide for comfortable everyday living. Window walls amplify the magical scenery and capture the arresting views in virtually every room of the house. Other special highlights include an impressive entry hall, an ornate fireplace wall in the view-filled living room, finely carved cabinets in the dining room and a 2,000-bottle wine cellar, perfect for the connoisseur.
Warm and enveloping, the home is also open to its marvelous surroundings and all the main rooms flow out to the deck that extends the entertaining space while offering the perfect spot to revel in the pristine surroundings and splendid lake views.
An exciting mix of architecture and landscape in a most convenient locale, this private haven is ideally situated just 45 minutes from Manhattan.
