Welcome to the esteemed architect, Richard Neutra's legendary "Pitcairn House." This world famous architect, who has collaborated with the likes of Frank Lloyd Wright, specifically designed this home for the current owner, who has been the only occupant for over 50 years. This masterpiece came to life over a period of three years from inception to completion and encompasses all the best that Mid-Century Modern homes envelope. Carefully balancing harmony with nature, Neutra incorporated his signature styles of building with the environment. Pioneering the "Mitered Edge" glass where two windows meet at perpendicular angles, there were many firsts when developing this masterpiece. Neutra's vision for this home came when he and the current home owner, walked along the vacant land, stopped to sit on a log near a cliff where Neutra envisioned how the home owner would interact with the home and its surroundings. This home is almost 85% windows. Windows are PPG double paned Twindows. "In wildness is the preservation of the world" by David Thorough, this is inspiration of the book that the current owner published entitled "Dreaming Wild In the Heart of the Pennypack", as this home provides dream worthy views over the 800+ acre Pennypack Ecolological Restoration Trust. As you enter this 1/4 mile long driveway, there is a physical feeling of awe as you make your way through picturesque views as you ascend upon the home. Mixing the modern amenities in with nature, this home boasts a professional recording studio with media room, separate out-building that could be added on which also has fiber-optic networks running to both. There is an indoor pool from which views of the cantilevered staircase can be taken in. The kitchen has been fully renovated and is fit for a gourmet. The master retreat has breath-taking views, updated shower and Jacuzzi bath. There is a professional office, for those who need to keep their work spaces separate from the living quarters. There is even an attached apartment/in-law suite with its own kitchen, sitting room and bedroom. The detached building has been approved for an additional 1000 square feet if new owner wants to add on. Only about 15 minutes to Northeast Airport for private plane use, 30 minutes to center city and about 30 minutes to Trenton to catch the train to NYC, surrounded by some of the best schools in the area, this home truly brings together harmony at every turn, having been published in several outlet.
