DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. -- Inspired by a German art school in the early 1900's, Bauhaus homes influenced a movement of expressive architecture, leading to a combination of creativity and manufacturing.
Bauhaus designed homes were inspired by the Bauhaus School, a German school of art, design, and architecture founded in 1919 by architect Walter Gropius. The aim of the school was to fuse art, design, architecture and crafts into a unified whole. The Bauhaus was the most influential modernist art school in the 20th century, one whose approach to teaching, and understanding art's relationship to society and technology, had a major impact both in Europe and the United States long after it closed.
Today, Bauhaus homes feature open floor plans, a minimalistic approach and are designed with an artistic vision. They also feature walls of windows, allowing light to enter the room so residents can enjoy their property while keeping warm during the chilly fall weather.
Inspired by the Bauhaus School and a minimalistic approach, the home at 14 Cricket Lane, in Dobbs Ferry has recently hit the market. The home was built in 1953 and features four bedrooms, three bathrooms and over 3,000 sq. ft. of living space. The interior also includes a large kitchen with new granite countertops, a library and windows throughout the home overlooking the property. Outdoor living space is also a staple of many Bauhaus designs.
14 Cricket Lane includes a screened porch with a patio and an outdoor fireplace. This beautiful sprawling home also has a huge master suite, with a fireplace and massive closets.
