Aaron Resnick served as a co-architect with the esteemed architect Frank Lloyd Wright on the Usonia Historic District project. Their gambit resulted in a planned community of 43 homes in Pleasantville, NY. Wright wound up designing three homes for the project while Resnick designed 12.

Now, one of Resnick’s own designs—a three-bedroom, two-bath ranch on an 8.3-acre site in Lagrangeville, NY—is on the market for $1,250,000. It’s listed with Joseph A. Satto of Fresh Air Realty.

Built in 1960, the 2,192-square-foot midcentury modern home has had about four different owners, according to Satto. It was last sold in 2020, for $1,046,500.

The sellers live part-time here and in New York City, which is a mere 70 miles away.

Perched on a hill and backing up to farmland, the property is surrounded by old-growth Norway spruce.

“It’s meant to be something that’s connected to what’s around it,” says Satto. “Anywhere your head turns (from inside the home), you’re always seeing something outside.”

That’s mostly due to walls of windows and 12 skylights throughout the residence.

“Connection to nature is front and center,” says Satto. “There’s an incredible amount of light in this house for being surrounded by woods.”

As with Wright’s houses, Resnick kept the three bedrooms small and the common spaces large.

Stacked-bluestone walls, red slate floors, birch cabinetry, exposed wood beams, and redwood shelves are some of the standout design features. Little has been altered in the home—a testament to its high levels of craftsmanship. Original cabinetry, built-ins, and decorative tilework all remain intact.

An open floor plan and abundant outdoor spaces are conducive to entertaining as well as working from home—a key for today’s buyer.

For example, a stone patio connects to the living room and kitchen, making it ideal for cooking or dining outdoors. A previous owner, who was a composer, installed high-end, sound-dampening panels in one of the two bonus rooms, which now serves as a home office.

The property also includes a carport for two cars, walking trails, and a heated in-ground pool surrounded by a bluestone terrace.

Traveling to New York City is a breeze, thanks to the nearby New Hamburg Metro-North station, just a 15-minute drive from the home.

“It’s a weekend home for a city dweller that wants something closer than (other weekend-home destinations),” says Satto. Stylish and close to the city, this home should have no shortage of suitors.
