Property Price Match: Modern Then vs. Modern Now


It’s not hard to spot echoes of the classic Mid-Century Modern aesthetic — minimalist lines, flat planes, and walls of glass — in many of today’s new developments. Currently on the market, you can find the real deal or a place that nods to this bygone era while offering today’s coveted modern features.

Designed by Arthur Witthoefft in 1957, restored in 2007, and listed on the State & National Registry of Historic Places, the home features Mid-Century hallmarks, like floor-to-ceiling glass, exposed steel, and white, iron-speckled glazed brick.

For lovers of new construction, this Tarrytown end-unit condo, built in 2012, offers spacious rooms with dramatic, unobstructed Hudson River views — plus a killer waterfront balcony. The sleek design (metallic  bathroom details, gleaming all-white kitchen) conveys an urban-chic vibe yet still feels homey and welcoming. “Modern,” then, is in the eye of the beholder.
