A peaceful estate is now up for grabs in Snedens Landing, a historic hamlet located just a short drive from New York City. The four-acre property was home to the late artist Grace Knowlton, who won acclaim for her outdoor sculptures.
For over 50 years, Knowlton resided in a former barn on the property that was reimagined into a multilevel residence in 1968 by Hardy Holzman Pfeiffer Associates. The award-winning firm retained the historic feel of the property by integrating wide-plank floors and ceilings with exposed beams.
The team redesigned the layout to be free-flowing and open, and they installed large casement windows to draw daylight inside. Today, the home spans over 5,000 square feet with four bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths.
Knowlton transformed the expansive property into a creative hub and invited artists, potters, and sculptors—from both near and far—to visit and collaborate. In addition to the converted barn residence, the estate also includes a remodeled cottage with two bedrooms and one bath, as well as an industrial-era machine shop with additional living and studio spaces. There is also a small potters studio (complete with a wood-fired kiln) that was converted from a former estate outbuilding.
