3 Marcel Breuer-designed homes on the market right now

Modernist retreats designed by the master

Modernism enthusiasts can choose from a trio of Marcel Breuer properties currently up for sale in upstate New York, Connecticut and New Jersey.

Work by the Bauhaus-educated architect has become much sought after, and collectors ready for the next step can now snap up one of three boxy Breuer-designed homes in the US.

McComb House, Poughkeepsie, New York

Via Klemm Real Estate

4 bedrooms; $849,000 via Klemm Real Estate
Breuer’s McComb House is perfect for city-dwellers yearning for an upstate escape – located a couple of hours outside of New York, and sitting on 3.4 acres of land. The house adopts one of the architect’s classic ‘binuclear’ layouts, which divides the four-bedroom home into two wings. More unusually for Breuer, the McComb House is spread across multiple levels that accommodate the sloping land it’s built onto.

Built in 1951 as the architect’s personal residence, this Connecticut property has doubled in size since its construction. New York architect Toshiko Mori oversaw its extension, with the new parts of the home connected to the old via a glass-enclosed staircase. The four-bedroom dwelling is filled with natural light, which pours in from its many glass sliding doors and clerestory windows.

The Lauck House, Princeton, New Jersey

In 2009, architect owners Rafi and Sara Segal finished restoring the property.

4 bedrooms; $1.4m via Architecture for Sale
A swooping ‘butterfly roof’ is just one of this four-bedroom home’s classic Breuer features. Lauck House underwent a full renovation from its architect owners Rafi and Sara Segal in 2009, which used archive material from MoMA to restore original walls and reinstate the 1950s finishes and colour palette. The house, which is on the market with Architecture For Sale, is one of only two remaining Breuer homes in the state – making it a local landmark.
