It has seen galas and gowns. A president. A first lady. A rock concert. Champagne toasts. Fashion shows down the double stairs. Singers. Socialites. Senators. Ambassadors. A ballet performance on the lawn. It has been celebrated in books, in Vogue and in The New York Times. It has seen children. Diapers. Dogs and cats. Family dinners. Laughs. Love. Tears. Teens. Volleyball games. Christmas trees. A debut. A wedding. Lasagna. Laundry. Bicycles and Band-Aids. Sunrises and sunsets. It has celebrated birthdays, holidays and family — for 53 years and counting. It is grand. It is livable.
And now it can tell your story.
It is the rarest of them all: a Philip Johnson masterpiece, never to be repeated. Built in 1964, with an exquisite and sensitive update completed in 2008, the light-filled house boasts elegant living spaces, a stunning double staircase, a unique dining room with an arched canopy, six bedrooms, seven full baths and four half baths. The nearly 7 parklike acres include a media house, modernist cabana, pool and tennis court.
"Of all the houses that Philip Johnson designed, perhaps none are as strangely fascinating." —Pilar Viladas, The New York Times, 2010
