  • Won an 1949 Progressive Architecture Award

  • Miller married Mario Lucci, who lived there until 1971

  • Sold to a person who expanded it.

  • Barbara Friedman (living at 1 Beekman Place in NYC) sold it in 4/14/1999 to Walter & Marilyn Kreiseder who built a 20,360 sf house in 2003

  • Author Stephen King lost the bidding in 1999 to buyers Walter and Marilyn Kreiseder, who sought someone to move the main house prior to new construction.

Rudolph used bounding walls, an entry trellis, various ceiling planes, and expanses of glass to define and direct experience through the house.
