Wikipedia defines Mid Century Modern as “An architectural, interior and product design form that generally describes mid-20th century developments in modern design, architecture, and urban development from roughly 1933 to 1965. The term was coined in 1983 by Cara Greenberg for the title of her ground-breaking book, _Mid-Century Modern: Furniture of the 1950s_ (Random House), celebrating the style which is now recognized by scholars and museums worldwide as a significant design movement. Mid-century architecture was a further development of Frank Lloyd Wright’s principles of organic architecture combined with many elements reflected in the International and Bauhaus movements. Mid-century modernism, however, was much more organic in form and less formal than the International Style. Scandinavian designers and architects were very influential at this time, with a style characterized by simplicity, democratic design and natural shapes. This style emphasized creating structures with ample windows and open floor-plans with the intention of opening up interior spaces and bringing the outdoors in.
Homeowners who live in modern homes are passionate about the design period and the integrity of the architecture. Aside from Usonia in Mount Pleasant , there are quite a few of these custom built homes throughout the Armonk area.
Currently on the market now is 5 Hunter Drive in Armonk .http://www.postlets.com/res/3242410

Usonia Homes is in Mount Pleasant. Pleasantville is just the mailing address.
Thanks for the comment…will edit it. Because Usonia is in the Byram Hills School District, I tend to think of the post office box.
