Few homes boast a roof like this midcentury New Jersey house, which is crowned by a billowing ‘wave’.
Architect Jules Gregory topped the 1960 Lambertville house with a wave-like timber form featuring conoid forms and dramatic overhanging eaves. The sinuous three-bedroom property lies in a ten-acre wooded plot near the Delaware and Raritan Canal.
The 1960s ‘Wave’ house has high glass walls and a timber frame and facades composed of square and rectangular forms. It was the personal home of Jules Gregory, who pioneered the midcentury modern style and has a legacy in the Pennsylvania and New Jersey areas. Now it is for rent via Airbnb for $465 per night and sleeps up to six.
Inside the Hunterdon County house, an undulating, fir ceiling stretches overhead, appearing to float above its living spaces and bedrooms thanks to the clerestory windows featured throughout. Meanwhile, its sunken living room and rock wall features add to the 60s vibe.
