Bold Modernist Residence

Designed in 1953 by modernist architect Marcel Breuer, the Neumann Residence in New York State is a unique and rare historical treasure that has been carefully restored to chic modernist glamor.

The residence is located on an impressive 3.4 acre hill and offers panoramic views over the Hudson River. Every inch of this masterpiece was built for the artist Vera Neumann and revived by her third owners and educated Breuer followers. The house is 377.56 square meters, has six bedrooms and four bathrooms. Considered a masterpiece by its creator, it is a one-story, light-filled residence with white, red, and blue concrete walls filling the surrounding landscape, while making the most of its distinctive location thanks to its floor-to-ceiling windows that are connected to each other Outer.

The current owners, who bought the house in 2014, have renovated it, keeping Breuer’s original design and carrying it over into the 21st century. Today it is made up of modern conveniences and appliances, but its modernist feel is still intact. Both the main house and the guest house have access to an indoor pool, which was added in the early 1970s when Breuer returned at Neumann’s request. Additional amenities include an outdoor pool, a waterfall, and stone walls and terraces.
