The ‘Bird in Flight’ house
I have always wondered how they get wood to bend – but this place goes beyond a curved roof – it is literally undulating!
The “wave house” is currently for sale in Lambertville, New Jersey for $1,100,000.
It is dramatic, it is graceful, and yes, it looks like a bird in flight.
Designed by architect Jules Gregory, this 1960 home was built as his personal residence – so you know it is going to be something special!
Have a look inside….
The home has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in a mere 1,480 square feet.
Doesn’t it seem larger with all the windows?
The wave house last sold in February of 2006 for $695,000.
It has since been renovated by the current owner but special care was taken to preserve its mid-century features.
The defining characteristic of this house (besides the roofline) are those wonderfully large floor-to-ceiling windows that you could seemingly walk right through to touch the trees…
The wood beams and field stone walls bring that natural feeling inside and the vibe is carried throughout the entire home…
Are you loving all the vintage mid-century mod furniture in here? I sure am!
How would you like to wake up to that kind of sunshine?
Guests can also awaken to the woodland views, but the guest house definitely plays second fiddle to the main house:
Yep, it has a boring flat roof as opposed to the undulating, sculptural roof of the main house (because you never want your guests to become too comfortable, right?).
But the guest house has one of those nifty double-sided fireplaces:
All the period furnishings come with both houses – for the right asking price, of course.
The estate is set 10 acres bordering Mercer County in Lambertville, New Jersey.
This house was featured in Architectural Record magazine in the 1960′s as one of ‘America’s 10 Best Houses’.
