Located in West Orange, this mid-century modern home sits on over two acres of lush, green land, providing residents with a strong connection to their natural surroundings. The home also features panoramic year-round views of the New York City skyline.
The repeated gable-roof articulated on the outside is expressed through post-and-beam ceilings on the interior creating an uninterrupted flow of space, also known as an open-concept plan.
Beneath each of the seven gables is a separate interior function, but the structure of the home allows each individual space to feel connected to the rest. The home also offers floor-to-ceiling windows, which allow the entire home to be flooded with light.
This home offers extreme privacy, located on a large swath of land on a private road, through two sets of security. Additionally, the home boasts a classic feature of mid-century design — the car port.
Typical in mid-century modern residential design is the seamless connection to nature and the hearth as the center of the home. At 24 Eagle Ridge Drive, both of these characteristics are present through the use of materials — glass, stone, and wood — and through the connection to the outside achieved with the use of large windows and such an expansive plot of land. The hearth in this home is the focal point, made of natural stone and centralized within the space.
The home, located at 24 Eagle Ridge Drive, is asking $949,000.
