The Juul-Hansen House – Barryville

Barryville, USA, Sold, £1,165,000


Designed and built by renowned NYC-based Danish architect Thomas Juul-Hansen as his family home, this striking modern triumph sits above the majestic Delaware river on six very private and lush acres.

The four-bedroom, three-bath, 3,500 square foot house, evocative of modern seaside country homes in Scandinavia, finds a perfect balance between luxury and minimalism with its clean lines and attention to detail. The house was designed as two stacking boxes, with the lower clad in reclaimed, painted black cedar and the upper one-sided with 100-year-old snow fencing shipped in from Wyoming.

Indoor and outdoor living blends seamlessly with the chef’s kitchen and dining room connected by a wall of glass to a sweeping terrace and heated shotcrete pool ideal for entertaining friends or enjoying intimate family time. An Isokern Magnum Masonry fireplace in silver travertine makes the natural light-filled living space inviting and cozy. There are four comfortably sized, airconditioned bedrooms upstairs including a master suite, all with large windows and magnificent views to the outside.
