205 Emans was designed and built in 1960 by Aaron Resnick – one of the principal architects of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Usonia community. Resnick, like Wright, believed that properties should be designed in harmony with nature and this philosophy is readily apparent in every aspect of this home.

Enter the home through the glass front door, where a meticulously stacked bluestone staircase leads to an open plan layout, with walls of glass and stacked bluestone walls – providing an instant and visceral connection to the property’s natural elements and surroundings. A generously sized living room features more beautiful stone walls with striking details, including a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace.

Steps beyond the living room, the kitchen retains the original cabinetry, decorative tile work and substantial built-ins. It’s many windows and twelve skylights allow sunlight to permeate every room in the house. A mix of high-end materials including red slate floors, birch cabinetry, redwood shelves, and exposed wood beams cement the connection between the interior and the outdoors.

In addition to the three bedrooms, there are two bonus spaces, one with high-end sound dampening panels and multiple walls of windows that is currently a home office and another small room that could serve as a kid’s playroom or additional office. A stone patio that connects directly to both the living room and the kitchen via glass doors is perfect for outdoor cooking and dining.

This home is perched atop a plateau with 360-degree seasonal mountain views and not a single neighbor in sight. Multiple outdoor spaces provide various options for relaxation and entertainment, including a heated in-ground pool which is surrounded by an extensive bluestone terrace with both farm and mountain views.
