A gallerist’s Hudson Valley retreat asks $3.745m

Designed by Paul Mayén

What does Water Run have in common with Frank Lloyd Wright’s famous Fallingwater? Architect Paul Mayén worked on both the properties, which share a philosophy of organic architecture that responds to the landscape.

Mayen designed Water Run with his life partner, architect Edgar Kaufman Jr, whose parents commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright to design their waterfall home. (Kaufman later inherited the masterpiece, while Mayén was commissioned to design its visitor centre).

The five-bedroom Hudson Valley property sits on 15 acres in the Highlands town of Garrison, an hour’s drive north of New York City. Living space spans 7,500 sq ft across two buildings, connected by an 83-ft-long, covered glass bridge.

It’s been listed with Sotheby’s International Realty for $3.745 by its current artist/gallerist owner, and Water Run houses a formidable collection of art and design pieces.

Minimalist interiors stay true to Mayén’s vision of organic living. Each volume has large glass panels with views of the European-style formal gardens, with follies, topiaries and ponds, and access to the outdoor decking.

Mayer’s built-ins and clever details (such as hidden sockets and wiring) maintain the clean sightlines heightened by glossy floors and vast interior walls for hanging oversized artworks.
