Resting on a tree-covered lot in Tarrytown, this luxurious modern home by the award-winning designers at Austin’s Alterstudio Architects draws you in and immerses you in its natural surroundings so smoothly and completely that it’s could be easy to forget about the house altogether.
That would be a mistake, though, as you’d miss the multitude of rich materials and the deft way they’re integrated into the design. Mill-finished steel, Italian clay brick, sheer glass walls, and warm, almost dark, wood tones somehow create simple beauty and harmony where one might expect clash and cacophony. It’s a level of skill and imagination usually found in Alterstudio’s work, but it never fails to surprise.
The 4,198-square-foot home has four bedrooms and five bathrooms. The exterior of the two-story house is frame and brick, and there are covered patios, porches, and balconies—including ones strategically enclosed for privacy. A modern-lined pool and hot tub provide focus for the fenced backyard and the ubiquitous greenery that surrounds the home.
