Spanish architect and industrial designer Paul Mayén is perhaps best known for working with Frank Lloyd Wright on the design of Fallingwater, as well as for his Modernist furniture designs, many of which are part of MoMA’s permanent collection. At WaterRun, a 14-acre estate in Garrison, New York, all of Mayén’s expertise is on display. The contemporary 7,500 square foot home uses Wright’s penchant for bringing the outdoors in, and is full of lighting and built-in furniture designed personally by Mayén. But the house is best known for its scenery, where you’ll find perennial gardens, pavilions, caves, obelisks, ponds, meandering streams, and even a cascading waterfall.

Mayén built the house in 1975, filling the 14-acre site with artistic touches like a sculpture walk, pyramids, obelisk, formal and informal gardens, caves, and a tennis court. There is also a large pond which contrasts with the modernity of the house itself.

What’s interesting about the property is that they are actually two separate structures, connected by an 83-foot-long interior glass walkway.

The structure seen above on the right with the curved ends is a large large room and a kitchen with two half-moon shaped pavilions at each end. There are also two bedrooms and an office / den.

The pavilions are currently converted into art galleries and libraries. According to Compass, current owner Marylyn Dintenfass, well known for her colorful oil paintings, which can be seen throughout the house. In addition to his art collection, the house includes lighting fixtures with Mayén’s unique hidden mechanics system, as well as built-in furniture that he designed especially for the home.

The other structure (seen above on the right) houses a dining kitchen, a small gallery, a dining room and an indoor lap pool, completed by a dressing room. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, including the master suite, as well as storage space.

A red tile path runs from the catwalk as a kind of directional and artistic component, just like the ceiling light. We see above the space / den of the gallery.

The kitchen has double ovens, a ventilated stove and a pantry.

The dining room has floor-to-ceiling windows that open onto the large outdoor patio.

Next to the dining room is the indoor swimming pool.

The bedrooms all have oversized windows with a view of the park. Although not shown, in the basement there is a large open workshop, laundry room and home gym.
