How does one define Cool? Is it something elusive or can it be captured and celebrated in form? Like so many things cool is something you just feel when you see it. We know we have found it in this mid-century marvel of a home which showcases high design and conjures the free feeling flow of a Miles Davis tune. Built for the Martinson Coffee family in 1961, the year of American Cool...JFK, Dylan recording his debut album, Art Blakey's release of Night in Tunisia....ya dig? The home is sited atop a hill which gifts it with views of the Croton Gorge, The Croton Reservoir, The Hudson River & it's highland hills. Fasten your seatbelts & BATTEN down the hatches cause we're taking a ride and a cool deep dive. From the Umbrella Pine to the Japanese prayer stones & from the clean lines to the kidney shaped swimming & diving pool you will smile with every step you take in and over these 3 acres. Walls of windows welcome you like an embrace and the open plan feels magical. A floor to ceiling stone hearth and fireplace (1 of 2) exude warmth and texture which is echoed by the hardwoods underfoot. The screen porch and L shaped deck with party seating & views make al-fresco living and entertaining a dream. The kitchen is anchored by high end appliances & tons of pantry starage space. A main level en-suite bedroom (there's another en-suite upstairs!) & full bath make life convenient. Up a spiral wooden stair carved from a single piece of Walnut brings you to Wowville! Rooms that keep on going & flowing, skylights, balconies, walls of closets and the list goes on! A lower level offers 1600 square feet of separately accessible everything! Recreation rooms, libraries, another fireplace, offices, bedrooms, storage spaces & a cold-war era fallout shelter you'll fallin love with (future wine room?). A cabana, a diving board, leaded glass accents,stone stairs all around the terraced property, 200 amp service, central air that keeps the cool vibe going...nature and craft both in & out...makes this your home & your home away from home. Come Party like it's 1961!
