Legendary Midcentury Architecture Photographer Ezra Stoller's Home Asks $2.2M

By Jennifer Baum Lagdameo
Ezra Stoller's work defined and documented the midcentury era.

Renowned photographer Ezra Stoller is known for capturing iconic 20th-century works like Mies van der Rohe's Seagram Building, Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater, the Guggenheim Museum, and Eero Saarinen's TWA Terminal (which recently reopened as an incredible hotel).

Stoller, who died in 2004 at age 89, had other talents as well—in fact, in 1948 he worked with acclaimed architects Abraham Geller and George Nemeny to design his own home in Rye, New York.

16 Kirby Lane North is rooted in midcentury-modern tradition, despite having undergone some recent additions.

The lovely midcentury-modern home has been renovated over the years, however it still clings fast to its roots. Nestled into the hillside, the home is long and lean and features a low-slung roof that merges into a dramatic two-story glass addition that's filled with natural light.

The double-height living room is open and airy thanks to an expansive wall of windows.

Just off the living room, a cozy den (which served as the home's original living room before renovations) with an earthy stone-inlay fireplace provides a comfortable spot for reading.

The open, flexible floor plan preserves clear sight lines to the woods outside.

A sunroom provides additional living space.

Decode Heavy Pendant
The Heavy Medium Pendant Light (2009) is available in four tonal finishes - light or dark gray, off-white, and brown. Each concrete shade is individually slip-cast and left inverted in the mold to dry.

There are four bedrooms in total. 

The bedrooms are bright with natural light. 

This updated bathroom features a fully tiled wall. 

A glass door in the master bedroom opens to a small terrace.

In the master bathroom, water from the shower drains straight through the wooden floor slats.

A bright hallway lined with storage leads to the kitchen. 

The loft-like second-floor kitchen is flooded with natural light.

Daylight filters in from the front wall of windows and a central skylight. 

The updated, contemporary kitchen maintains a warm midcentury presence thanks to the use of wood. 

The low-slung roof helps to integrate the home into its sylvan surroundings. 

16 Kirby Lane North is currently listed for $2,200,000 by Amy Via and Todd Goddard of Houlihan Lawrence.
