The Bioscleave House, which supposedly extends the lifespan of those who live in it, has had its asking price slashed by $1 million, Curbed reported. The East Hampton home, built in 2008 and designed by the late avant-garde architect Madeline Gins and her artist husband Arakawa, has come on and off the market over the last few years, seeking $4 million in early 2011 and then nearly $2.5 million in July 2018. The interior of the home is brightly colored with varying, unusual terrain forcing those inside to “move through life differently,” according to 2016 Awl story about the home. The entire 3,400-square-foot property, now available to potential buyers for almost $1.5 million, is actually two connected houses, including a smaller 900-square-foot, 1960s A-frame abode designed by Harvard architect Carl Koch. Two of the home’s four bedrooms along with one-and-a-half bathrooms are housed in its more traditional, mid-century wing. All of the Bioscleave House’s rooms, however, open into its central sloping atrium. The property is currently owned by Professors Group LLC, which bought it in 2007 for $1.25 million from Angela Gallman, an Italian art collector who initially commissioned the home. Jose DosSantos of Brown Harris Stevens has the listing. [Curbed]
