Sitting on the west bank of the Hudson River in New York, the Socrates Zaferiou House is a Frank Lloyd Wright Usonian home with a unique twist.
The four-bedroom Usonian property is one of just nine that Frank Lloyd Wright designed for Marshall Erdman in the 1950s as part of his Clausland Mountain Park development in Blauvelt. This one is special, however, as it has a specially modified floor plan. While still single-storey, it features an extra bedroom and (more significantly) a walk-out basement with high ceilings, added at Zaferiou’s request.
Living spaces span 2,600 sq ft and are arranged in an L-plan, with Wright’s customary built-ins, wooden panelling and signature red flooring all original. While Wright visited the construction site, he sadly passed away before its completion in early 1960.
The New York property has been very well preserved, down to its period kitchen with original elements, vast brick fireplaces and wood-framed windows. They peek onto bucolic 2.5-acre grounds within the dense woodland of Clausland Mountain Park.
Agents Richard Ellis and Brandon Wagner of Ellis Sotheby’s International Realty are listing the Frank Lloyd home for $1.525M.
