Why choose a Mid-Century Modern Specialist as Your Agent?

Ellen Hilburg and Andrea Martone offer a unique vision of Mid-Century Modern Homes. They have an unusual passion for the history, architecture and the designer/architects of the mid-century contemporary homes in the lower Hudson River region of New York.

Together they will become your “personal shoppers,” opting to show your the best listings as they pop up on the market. Remember, not all Mid-Century homes are the treasures you’d hope to expect.  Some have been “updated” so much that the original beauty cannot be rediscovered. Others have become orphans of style in the midst of deteriorating or vastly changed locations. We will pass on knowledge not only of period design, but of location, the state of repair/disrepair, and the value of your investment.

PROPERTIES

A rare opportunity!

Imagine this unique Mid-Century Modern masterpiece along the lower Hudson River being personally shown to you by  Mid-Century Modern Hudson Valley website creator, Ellen Hilburg.

“Although most of 20th century building in Rockland took place after the TZ Bridge opened, there are some other interesting Mid-Century Modern homes in the Nyack area,” noted Ellen Hilburg, who was recently quoted in Lohud Magazine (a USA Today Network Publication).

According to Ms. Hilberg, the home’s provenance can be traced back to 1960 during the culmination of the Mid-Century Modern movement. Architect Charles Winter – renowned designer of the Rockland Center for the Arts – employed the best of his talent to build a home on one of the last remaining plots of land along the lower Hudson River. The results speak for themselves to this day.

Imagine this amazing chance to view such a home, and to have the one of this country’s premiere modernist experts as your personal guide.

To arrange a viewing, email Ellen Hilburg directly.

The Bauhaus or International style of modernistic construction was borne from the ashes of World War I in Germany. Sadly the style became associated with the left-wing political movements of the day. So it was no surprise that the rise of totalitarianism put an end to the Bauhaus school. This prompted the self-expulsion of many talented European architects, including Polish-born Martin Lowenfish who came to New York to foster the arrival of Bauhaus design as you can enjoy in this incredible Dobbs Ferry home.
