Holiday Eye Candy: Breuer’s Lauck House in NJ – $1.8 million
“I am as much interested in the smallest details as in the whole structure.”–Marcel Breuer
I came across this quote the other day from Bauhaus master Breuer in a catalog for contemporary furnishings. And then I was searching for modern homes near where I grew up in New Jersey and came across this home by Breuer. Originally built for the Lauck family in 1950, the home was in danger in of being knocked down when the current owners–both architects–bought it and did a full restoration. Listed in June foe $2 million, the price is now at $1.8 million. The home is based on his famous design showcased in MoMA’s garden in New York City in 1949.
We are also are luck to have a Breuer-designed home right here in Bethesda.
Hope you enjoy and have a Happy Thanksgiving. And as always, thanks for reading and following Modern Capital.
