Turetsky House / Norman Jaffe


This 1977 swooping home is striking and sculptural all the same. That’s because it was designed by Norman Jaffe, a prolific romantic modernist architect known for creating a collection of modern homes in the Hamptons over a 35-year-long career. Located in Old Westbury, New York, in Nassau County, the hefty house is formed by several hulking volumes, the largest of which is the wood-clad, wedge-like roof topping the residence. Below it is an expansive glass-walled living space that enjoys views onto the verdant two-acre site. The structure also incorporates extensive use of stone on the façade and throughout the many outdoor spaces dotting the property. Amenities-wise there’s a home theatre, multiple decks and patios, and, of course, a glittering pool. Located at 15 Horseshoe Road, it’s offered at just under $4 million — via Curbed
