“The land and the location are prime, prime, prime,” says real estate agent Angela Kessel of Houlihan Lawrence in Bedford, NY, of this property that comprises 12 acres (three lots collectively) of natural and landscaped plantings. “The current owners are environmentalists and spent a lot of time on the landscape and reforesting and planting indigenous plants and trees,” adds Kessel. 

The hilltop placement of this wood and glass home makes for striking views of the surrounding hillsides and the floor-to-ceiling windows throughout allow light to enter from almost every angle. There are numerous outdoor terraces, stone patios and a built-in entertaining bar.

“It’s in the lap of nature,” says Kessel—with the added benefit of being less than an hour from New York City, she explains, making it ideal for weekenders or commuters. Plus, while extensive, the natural surroundings are low maintenance, making it easy to reap the benefits without much additional effort. 

The current owners, weekenders from Manhattan, bought the home in 2005 and have made numerous renovations inside and out that keep to the late architect Bert Brosmith’s original vision of the property. Part of the renovations included adding a large three-car garage, complete with an electric vehicle charging station, which could also convert for use as gallery or studio space. 

The home also includes is a 20-foot-by-60-foot heated gunite pool, a guest house and separate spa with waterfall overlooking the property.
