Designed in 1953 by modernist architect Marcel Breuer, the Neumann Residence in upstate New York is a unique and rare historical treasure, which has been meticulously restored to chic modernist glamour.
The residence is set on a commanding 3.4-acre hilltop, boasting panoramic views over the Hudson river. Built for artist Vera Neumann and revived by its third owners and educated Breuer devotees, every inch of this masterpiece breathes modernism. The house features 4,064 square feet (377.56 m²), six bedrooms and four bathrooms. It was considered a masterpiece by his creator, is a one-level light-filled residence where white, red and blue concrete walls fill the surrounding landscape while it makes the most of its striking location thanks to its floor-to-ceiling windows that connect the interior with the exterior.

Today, it is composed of modern conveniences and appliances but its modernist air is still intact.
