An NFT version of Paul Rudolph’s Edersheim Residence in New York has been minted and listed for sale alongside its bricks-and-mortar counterpart.
The Edersheim Residence at 862 Fenimore Road was built in 1958. Owners Maurits and Claire Edersheim repeatedly commissioned Rudolph to renovate the property in 1982, 1989 and 1991, with Rudolph designing its pool house, entrance porch and overhauling its interiors.
More recently, the 2.49-acre compound – which comprises a seven-bedroom main house, detached live/work studio and staff cottage – underwent a gut-renovation last year by architect Michael Grogan, with brand new amenities, smart home systems and new surfaces installed.
The energy-efficient home has been done to LEED Silver Standards and is designed to minimize its carbon footprint via geothermal power, 102 solar panels and foam insulated walls. NFTs, conversely, have come under scrutiny for their environmental impact due to the energy required to mint them.
The Edersheim Residence is listed on platform Open Sea for a minimum bid of 1 ETH: 2% Bounty (with a hidden reserve) and includes deeds of ownership of the physical 862 Fenimore residence per the listing.
