BROWN HARRIS STEVENS MARKETS THE HOUSES AT SAGAPONAC
Brown Harris Stevens’ Ingrid Brownyard and Amelia Doggwiler to Represent this Iconic Modernist Development
Project Offers Opportunity to Relocate Restored Frank Lloyd Wright House
Sagaponack, N.Y., July 25, 2011 – Luxury real estate firm Brown Harris Stevens, the exclusive affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate, Inc., announces the exclusive sales and marketing of the “Houses of Sagaponac,” a modernist residential development. The project features a series of houses created by internationally recognized architects who were given the directive to achieve design excellence and push the envelope of contemporary architecture resulting in a community by and for thinking people. The Houses of Sagaponac is an acclaimed housing development conceived by the late Harry J. (CoCo) Brown Jr. with the assistance of architect Richard Meier.
The project is located on a vast tract of land north of Route 27 in Sagaponack and is exclusively listed by real estate agents Ingrid Brownyard and Amelia Doggwiler for the Hamptons at Brown Harris Stevens.
The Houses of Sagaponac is comprised of 32 parcels of land. The project features eight completed homes – two of which are currently available for sale. Expanding the scope of the original project, buyers are now offered the choice of: acquiring one of the houses originally designed for the project by the pantheon of modernist architects, curated by Richard Meier; having a home designed for the project by an array of new architects recently added to the project; or acquiring a parcel of land to develop with an architect and builder of choice.
The two completed homes for sale include The Keenan/Riley House totaling 3,000 square feet for $2.75 Million and The Henry Cobb House totaling 3,117 square feet for $2.495 Million.
There are 11 parcels of land available for sale ranging in size from 1.3 to 2.6 acres with prices from approximately $600,000 to $725,000. Buyers can also choose from one of the 13 completed home designs from architects including Sam Mockbee, Steven Holl, Richard Gluckman, Antonnio Citterio, Stephen Kanner, Cooper Robertson, Resolution 4, Morris Sato Studio, Di Cicco Vinci (DVA), Thread, Plaid, James Freed with prices from $2.495 Million to $5 Million.
“The change in sales strategy for the Houses at Sagaponac now gives buyers the opportunity to work with the plans and interact directly with the architect,” said Ingrid Brownyard. “This allows buyers to have a lot more input in what they want their home to look like and to own a house in a unique development featuring world renowned architects”
The Houses of Sagaponac provides a possible unique sanctuary to relocate the completed restored Bachman Wilson House within a neighborhood of well-designed houses that emulates a similar design philosophy. In 1954 Abraham Wilson and Gloria Bachman commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright to design a house in Millstone, New Jersey, an area subject to frequent flooding. The living room offers a dramatic two-story space, with a wall of glass and an open floor plan of horizontal and vertical planes that pass through the inside and outside allowing the owner to be one with nature. Respecting the original Frank Lloyd Wright design, the Bachman Wilson House would be sited in a southeast direction that would provide the intended passive solar orientation. The proposed relocation of the Bachman Wilson House would be of historic significance, providing the only authentic example in the Hamptons of one of America’s most revolutionary architects and designers.
