An idyllic private retreat deep within a forest in Armonk, New York

This 8,000 sq ft private wellness retreat in Armonk, New York, incorporates passive house principles and modern comforts with its original mid-century design.

This private wellness retreat in the woods is the stuff of daydreams with its sprawling mid-century residence on an 11ha plot with a lake view. Nestled in Armonk, New York, the home rises from the foliage like a fairy tale house with its pointed roof and glowing windows; the rest of it is partially hidden by the dense trees.

Originally built in the ’60s, it recently underwent a restoration by BarlisWedlick Architects.
