In 2019, British luxury car manufacturer Aston Martin has launched its Automotive Galleries & Lairs residential design service at Pebble Beach.
For it’s highly anticipated release of it’s first residential release, Sylvan Rock, the Aston Martin Design Team worked in collaboration with S3 Architecture. The due created the modernist luxury compound on 55 acres of land in Rhinebeck, New York – just 90 minutes from Manhattan.. or quicker if you own an Aston Martin.
The home showcases dramatic elements, including a cantilevered owners’ suite. The main residence offers 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and 2 half baths, an office suite, den, a lounge with bar and a custom wine cellar showcasing Aston Martin’s signature cross-hatched lattice design.
“Sylvan Rock is a strong marriage of design sensibilities,” says Cathal Loughnane, Head of Aston Martin Partnerships. “Creating a luxury residence with warm textures, bold forms and exceptional privacy is very aligned with Aston Martin’s own vision. We also wanted the owner and their guests to experience the three-dimensional feel of the house in an organic way, just like you experience one of our cars – there is no single façade that dominates.”
To accomodate guests, the estate has a further 3 guest pods. The entertainers delight includes a geothermal pool, outdoor kitchen, a 873 square foot pool house / wellness pavilion with hot tub, sauna and two treatment rooms.
Oh, and our favourite part – the estate comes with it’s own an architect-designed tree house and a dedicated agricultural food garden.
“When designing, we always let the land speak first and respond to it,” says S3 Architecture partner and Registered Architect Christopher Dierig. “The roofline mimics the jagged edges of the rock ledge reaching down into the earth, as if the home is born of and launching from the landscape. The resulting design blends our modernist aesthetic with the privacy and context of the rural location to create a unique luxury experience.”
