    Property Details

    The creation of Usonia, by Frank Lloyd Wright, was attractive to New York City dwellers wanting to escape the city for a mid-century modern style country home. The property at Emans Road, designed by Aaron Resnick, a disciple of Frank Lloyd Wright and one of the founders of the Usonia District, is a classic example of the style. One of the few homes of this pedigree outside of Pleasantville's Usonia community, the residence offers complete privacy. It sits on more than eight acres and is unified with the land, creating harmony within the natural surroundings. The home has passive elements, which take advantage of solar gains during the day, making it energy efficient with a consistent seasonal temperature. Built in 1954, the original birch kitchen cabinetry, Cherokee Red signature slate flooring, tiled baths, and beamed wood ceilings are intact. The open great room has walls of glass, minimal built in shelving, direct and indirect lighting, and a blue-stone fireplace which all contribute to an intimate living space. The exterior materials, layered stone walls and red slate flooring continue with beautiful form into the interior space which is characteristic of mid-century modern style. Forty years ago, the outdoor terrace was enclosed and used as a music and art studio. Stone pathways lead to the expansive pool, surrounded by a bluestone terrace, a perfect place for entertaining. The pool was built into the landscape at a lower elevation so as to not be in view of the main house. The pool backdrop is a panorama of the Catskill Mountains. Natural rock outcroppings, mature Norway Spruce, ornamental trees and shrubs surround the pool and house making the structures feel nestled, natural and unified with the surroundings. Located within a short drive of Millbrook, Beacon and Rhinebeck; seventy miles to NYC; minutes to the Taconic State Parkway and 15 minutes to Metro-North, New Hamburg.
