From the agent: "This is a rare opportunity to own world-renowned landscape architect Edwina von Gal’s own waterfront oasis with panoramic views of Accabonac Harbor that have inspired artists for generations. This two-parcel private sanctuary is down the street from the Pollock-Krasner House on the same protected estuary. The hidden gem is revealed when a winding lane past woodland, meadows and gardens and a charming cottage opens onto the iconic modernist house and harbor beyond. The private property is itself a work of art, portraying a four-season romance with the landscape, capturing the undisturbed beauty from the rising sun to the expansive ever-changing sunsets over a boardwalk to the harbor."

Hamilton Smith, a partner of Marcel Breuer, designed this 1974 cabin to look as if it is floating above water.

A private boardwalk from the ground floor of the home leads toward the waters of Accabonac Harbor. 

 The home’s exterior features a charming cypress facade that compliments the surrounding landscape. 

Treated cypress interiors inspire a cozy cabin feel. 

Wide, minimally framed windows allow for picturesque views in every room. 

Floor-to-ceiling sliding doors enable smooth transitions between indoor and outdoor spaces and evoke a feeling of unity with the landscape.

A more informal den on the ground floor, featuring dainty skylights, is the perfect place to host events for family and friends. 

As the former home of landscape architect Edwina von Gal, the backyard flaunts a beautiful garden, adding to the enchantment of the property. 

An expansive deck provides jaw-dropping views of golden sunsets on the harbor. 

"An expansive waterside deck gracefully reveals astonishing views. The private property is itself a work of art, portraying a four-season romance with the landscape, capturing the undisturbed beauty from the rising sun to the expansive ever-changing sunsets over a boardwalk to the Harbor," writes the listing agent.
