An architect’s barrel-vaulted residence is one of the latest homes to hit the market in the waterfront community of Dobbs Ferry in the Hudson River Valley. Built in 1961, the property was originally the home of local architect Ferdinand Gottlieb, best known for designing the interior of the first Rizzoli Bookstore on Fifth Avenue in midtown Manhattan. For his hillside home, Gottlieb designed a trio of arched volumes, the middle of which frames a 12-foot-high wall of glass.
Sited on a sloping corner lot, the two-story structure prioritizes natural light and views with top-floor living spaces that feature large windows and French doors overlooking a rear deck. The main entrance opens into the middle of the home, with the kitchen to one side and steps leading down to an open-concept living room and formal dining area.
Last sold in 2018, the home offers four bedrooms and four full bathrooms, spread out over more than 2,600 square feet of living space. The recently renovated kitchen boasts Reform cabinetry, custom wood shelving, Aurea Stone quartz countertops, and a Bertazzoni range.
Downstairs, a private bedroom suite comes with a kitchenette and its own entrance. The verdant, .22-acre lot—with multiple bluestone patios and a saltwater swimming pool—completes the package. Keep scrolling to see more of the property, currently listed for $1,450,000.
