Property Details for 88 Howland Rd


This property is no longer available to rent or buy. This description is from June 19, 2015
Steven Harris, the architect, is a member of the Interior Design Hall of Fame, listed among Architectural Digest’s AD100, and a Professor of Architecture at Yale. He is noted for a design process that tailors each project to its site and context. This remarkable home is no exception. The main house is set on a ridge to overlook the stunning protected southwest views of the Housatonic River Valley and Catskill Mountains beyond. For this project the design was inspired by the utilitarian buildings, once very common in this area, of farmsteads: the barn, shed and silo. The hou...se encompasses a 23’ high barrel-vaulted main living space (the barn), a pent-roofed kitchen wing (the shed) and a 32’ high tower (the silo). The open living/dining area features a native fieldstone fireplace and a 16’-high window that functions to frame the glorious views, as well as allow for abundant daylight and passive solar gain. An adjacent library opens to a covered patio. The kitchen has access to the cantilevered deck. The master bedroom, like a hayloft with sliding barn doors, overlooks the living room and is reached by a steel catwalk. Within the tower are the master bathroom adjoining the bedroom and above that is a study. A separate guest house with two bedrooms and full bath is close by and includes a two-car garage. For summer, an enchanting screened-in house is set near a small pond. The pool and pool house, which is built into a rock garden, are reached by a metal bridge. The compound is offered as two parcels totaling 26 plus acres. Although very private it is actually not far to the charming village of Kent and the MetroNorth train to Manhattan. When the owners commissioned this project 25 years ago their only request was that it be comfortable, unpretentious, and modern. Like all masterworks, it continues to deliver.
