Retreat to The Origami House, defining art as architecture. Set on 15+ acres, the property borders a nature reserve. Only nature and its inhabitants accompany as you ascend up the private drive punctuated by a cherry orchard and passing by the property’s lighted tennis court, before arriving at the intimate courtyard to the main residence. This 8,500 sq ft home is the creation of well-known architectural firm Leroy Street Studio, Manhattan. Sophisticated and comfortable country living describes this tranquil retreat. The home’s architectural design is a mathematical masterpiece where individual cubes appear to fold into each other in intricate ceiling and window elevations, only to reveal large open spaces that invite nature's energy inside. The home personifies the art of the angle where ceilings meet vast walls that are ideally suited for the art collector. Anchoring the west end of the home and inspired by I.M. Pei’s Louvre Pyramid is the Glass Great Room. The three exposure room opens onto an outdoor terrace and one of two waterfalls , part of a Koi sanctuary that can also be enjoyed and viewed through waterways and through a glass reveal in the home’s main gallery. Flexible spaces for conversion to additional bedrooms possible.
