495 Longview Road Side PhotoThis stunning Mid-century Modern home exists in complete harmony with its environment, reflecting the contemporary style of Frank Lloyd Wright that is characterized by the clean lines of its sleek geometric planes, giant glass windows and high ceilings, the artful marriage of steel, stone and wood, as well as expansive open spaces that bring the outside elements in. Designed by noted architect, Milton Klein, this home is the quintessential integration of art, architecture and nature. An expanse of glass walls along the eastern side of the home affords magnificent winter Manhattan skyline views, while banks of glass at the back of the home frame a secluded center patio set against a tiered garden backdrop. An open concept floor plan creates a sense of space and fluidity, with a textural blend of Travertine floors, walls of fieldstone, teak and glass present in each room.

495 Longview Road Living RoomThe dramatic living room with front and back views features a fireplace embedded in a wall of stone that flows into the dining room, complete with a recessed service bar, each with access to an elevated wraparound deck that juts out over the grounds below and beyond. Latticed teak privacy folding doors close off the dining room from the entry foyer and powder room for intimate gatherings. The master suite is set on a wing of its own, with sliders that open to the patio -- the perfect sunset setting for an evening repast. A skylit hallway, lined with ebony closets, introduces dual marble-clad master baths, each with its own room-sized custom dressing closet and recessed drawers stacked in ascending sizes; one features a marble-topped vanity with dressing table, plus a master shower and commode hidden behind a mirrored wall; the other has a unique sunken tub with marble surround and a separate commode.

495 Longview Road BarA nearby cozy home office/den with built-ins and deck access adds cachet. The kitchen is dressed in crisp white cabinetry with quality appliances, anchored on hardwood floors and enhanced with lofty vistas from the breakfast area. A nearby laundry/mud room has a separate entrance from the parking court for easy access, while an ensuite bedroom off the kitchen is an added bonus as a guest quarters or in-law suite. 

495 Longview Road Deck

Floating travertine steps lead to the walk-out lower level recreation room with sleek onyx-hued tile floors that contrast with the rustic flavor of a fieldstone wall, complete with built-ins and access to a lower covered patio that offers yet another idyllic respite. A children's wing on this level includes light-filled rooms with wall-to-wall carpeting that are connected by a Jack and Jill bath with double sinks and oversized shower. A wine room, a lighted walk-in cedar-lined closet, a second half bath and two large storage/utility rooms complete this spacious level. A two-car detached garage off the parking court completes the picture.

Set on over an acre of lush grounds, this unique home is a fabulous hidden gem.
