Aston Martin, the luxury sports car manufacturer has dabbled in architecture for the first time in its history. Teaming up with S3 Architecture to imagine and design an innovative residential compound in New York’s Hudson Valley.
Built on a 55-acre plot of land surrounded by woods, Sylvan Rock is a modernist estate offering ‘a reimagined modern lifestyle’. As with Aston Martin cars, the house is striking from every angle, offering over 8,000 feet of living space and a 2,000 foot driveway, perfect for parking your Aston Martins.
The exterior of the building is defined by dramatic floor-to-ceiling glazing and blackened cedar façade. The ‘owner’s suite’ is cantilevered, set beneath a unique folded panel roof structure. The three-car garage is set up to be more of an automotive gallery with a lounge and executive office all set on the same level along with a bespoke wine cellar, showcasing Aston Martin’s signature cross-hatched lattice design. the building comprises of four bedrooms, four bathrooms and two half baths.
Said to offer true self-sufficiency privately, the house has a dedicated agricultural food garden, accessed via a separate service entrance which can supply both the owner and regional farm markets. It is currently listed at $7.7 million and marketed by Corcoran Country Living.
