Midcentury modern home overlooking the Hudson River.

70 miles from NYC in Newburgh, NY.

Four bedrooms sleeps up to eight guests.

Wood burning fireplace & stunning river views.

This stunning midcentury modern home located in Newburgh, NY, was built in 1949 by the preeminent American architect Philip Johnson. Wolfhouse bears much in common with Johnson’s most famous home, The Glass House, erected the same year.

Set atop a hillside just north of the Newburgh-Beacon bridge with panoramic views of the Hudson River, it was meticulously restored to its original condition in 2020. It’s most recently been reimagined as both a rental home, and also a cultural space with year-round arts programming.

As a rental, it’s the perfect spot to cozy up with friends and family in the 4 bedroom home that explores the intersection of digital and physical arts, space, and light.

Throughout the day, watch the interiors spaces shift with the light: the sunrise glow, reflected by the River into the East-facing window walls — to the afternoon and evening light that pours and plays throughout the rest of the home, with abundant large windows. At night, fire up the neon lights that give the homes main corridor a mesmerizing pink glow and make a fire in the large brick fireplace. To stay here is to experience a real work of art.
