BRONXVILLE, N.Y. -- A newly listed Bronxville home, featuring glass walls and stunning vistats, is on the market for $4,100,000.
Much like Philip Johnson's famous Glass House in nearby New Canaan, 39 Elm Lane features a similar modernist style, as homeowners are are able to blend into their wooded surroundings. "This is one of the most unique, farm-style houses that we have listed," said Leah Caro of Park Sterling Realty. "In glass homes, you don't feel closed in but instead, much more connected to the yard and your surroundings."
In the late 1950's when architects began experimenting with different structures, glass houses became a popular style. Now, these unique homes are a hot commodity for those seeking something a little different. "Not only is the facade unique, but the open floor plan with limited walls inside makes these glass homes stand out," said Caro. "39 Elm utilizes every square-foot of the home. Every room is well thought out and serves a specific purpose."
Like many glass homes, 39 Elm Lane was built in the 1950's and features over 4,000 sq. ft. of living space, allowing sunlight to brighten nearly every room in the house. The home also includes six bedrooms, five baths and a separate studio. "The tranquil setting for this home is what makes it so desirable," said Caro. "Residents can relax and enjoy the beautiful property from the kitchen to the living room."
Unlike many other homes, glass houses offer unimpeded sight lines both inside and out. The 360-degree visual, natural light and the seamless connection with the property all make glass houses a unique but wonderful place to call home. "While this home is unconventional, it offers an incredible amount of character and practicality," said Caro.
