Classic Haus Hits the Market; Plaza Listing is Too Honest

New, 3 comments

SCARSDALE?We don't get up to the wilds of Westchester very often, but when everybody's favorite 20th-century German architecture movement comes calling, the CurbedWire answers! On the market is 39 Penny Lane, eight bedrooms and 6,000 square feet of Bauhaus goodness designed in 1937 by Paul M. Doering, who studied at the Bauhaus school and came to the U.S. when Hitler shut the institution down. Bonus fun fact: According to a press release, the house was once owned by soap star Gillian Spencer! Surely that means something to someone. Asking price: $1.85 million. More pics on the listing, but we've got a foyer shot after the jump. [CurbedWire Inbox]

MIDTOWN?"I thought the good people at Curbed might enjoy this one," a tipster writes, and we do enjoy anything related to the Plaza. "It is a 1200 sq ft 1-bedroom in the Plaza listed at the improbable price of $5.1 million. The listing states: 'The apt is specious and faces Central Park.' According to the OED via Google: spe·cious/?sp?SH?s/Adjective 2. Misleading in appearance, esp. misleadingly attractive: 'a specious appearance of novelty.' I for one appreciate the broker's unintentional honesty!" [CurbedWire Inbox]
