Twin Ponds, an absolutely stunning contemporary glass home in Bedford Hills is on sale. Marvin Schwartz, managing director and portfolio manager at Neuberger Berman, is selling his amazing Westchester estate for $30 million. This eclectic house in a small town in the Westchester County, New York is known as Twin Ponds because one of the ponds is under the house.
Built in 1983, this luxury house was the vision of Robin Roberts, the late interior designer who founded the legendary Manhattan fabrics and wallpaper firm Clarence House in 1961, and designed and built by architect Milton Klein. The property is a large 21.7 acre expanse with a beautiful glass main house, lush orchards, Japanese gardens, a tennis court, a pool house with a kitchen, a two-bedroom cabana with a gym, a detached guest house and a large heated barn/garage. The 6 bedroom, 3,600 square foot house also boasts a large koi lake surrounded by specimen trees and walkways, as well as a gypsy wagon which used as a tea room. It has been twice featured in “Architectural Digest.”
According to nypost.com “It’s a great home for entertaining,” Marvin’s wife Donna says of the house, which features a climate-controlled wine cellar and tasting room in the basement.”
