This minimalist modern mansion sprung from the design table of Uruguayan architect Rafael Viñoly, part of the THINK team who competed to design New York City’s new World Trade Center. It has 50-mile views, with the highest views reserved for its owners: The master bedroom is located in a tower. This estate has been on and off the market several times since 2008, with a starting price of $10 million, but when the most recent listing was removed in September, the cost had been slashed to $4.95 million. It’s unknown if the property sold.
