Designed by Roy O. Allen, a partner at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, as his own residence, this steel-and-glass pavilion-style building is in the municipality of Ossining, N.Y., less than a mile from the Scarborough Metro-North station and less than an hour’s drive from New York City.

Size: 3,450 square feet

Price per square foot: $578

Indoors: The home’s striking features include radiant-heated terrazzo floors; steel-framed, energy-efficient windows; a marble accent wall in the dining room that once was part of a Rockefeller residence; and built-in walnut cabinets throughout. The current owners, the magazine creative director Fred Woodward and his wife, Janice, hired Brad Dunning, a Los Angeles designer, to restore and enhance the property. The house was published in Architectural Digest in 2015.

It is constructed as two parts, connected by a glass breezeway. The main pavilion, which is glass and steel, contains a great room with a central chimney and gas fireplace, a kitchen designed by Mr. Dunning with a breakfast bar and Miele appliances, a master bedroom with an en suite marble-accented bathroom and two additional bedrooms and a bathroom.

The secondary, white-brick structure has a bedroom, a bathroom, a media room with a wood-burning fireplace, a laundry room and direct access to the two-car garage.

Outdoor space: The great room opens to a porch with a deep overhang and, beyond, an in-ground swimming pool. There is also a private patio off the master bedroom. The groomed 1.66-acre property presents a striking panorama in all seasons.

Taxes: $39,135

The third wall is exposed brick and contains another working fireplace. The fourth is a windowed bay with a door leading out to a deck. A large furniture piece resembling an armoire disguises a side-by-side pair of Subzero refrigerators.

The third floor has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The basement has a guest suite with a private entrance; the suite includes a family room, bathroom, kitchenette and rear outdoor patio.
