Frank Lloyd Wright Usonian Home
Outside of the five boroughs, you’ll find a Frank Lloyd Wright - Prefab House, less than 20 miles north of the city in the sleepy Rockland County hamlet of Blauvelt, named The Socrates Zaferiou House.
Designed in 1957 and construction completed one year after Wright’s death in 1959 with all the hallmarks of a classic Usonian home — flat roof, carport, open floor plan, plus-sized fireplace, clerestory windows, loads of glass, etc. — the Socrates Zaferiou House is situated on a woodsy, 3-acre mountainside lot perched within Blauvelt State Park. The L-shaped, four-bedroom home is, predictably, in “harmony with the environment.”
The timeless 2,500-square-foot home was completely restored to include all original elements of the period kitchen, full walk-out basement, patio and planting areas, and rows of glass doors and windows that systematically allows the beauty of nature inside the dwelling.
