A Usonian Frank Lloyd Wright House
IN BLAUVELT, less than 20 miles from New York City, is the Socrates Zaferiou House designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Completed in 1961, the 2,500-square-foot Usonian home has been restored by Sarah Magness, including the period kitchen, batten mahogany paneling, and exterior.
An escape from the city, the house is representative of Frank Lloyd Wright’s genius and philosophy that the outside is the inside, and vice versa. Likewise, Sarah wanted the interiors to reciprocate the woodsy landscape. The strict linear components, inside and out, required a simplified, peaceful interior to reinforce the character of the architecture.
