‘I Love NY’ Designer Milton Glaser Offers His Woodstock Barn for $1.8 Million
He says he did some of his best work there.
Legendary graphic designer Milton Glaser, creator of the “I Love NY” logo and an iconic Bob Dylan poster, is putting his upstate New York home, which he describes as “quite large and very unusual,” on the market for $1.8 million.
Glaser and his wife, Shirley, are looking to sell their former farmhouse in Woodstock, New York, where he created some of his most memorable designs, including the world-famous “I Love NY” emblem, Gothamist reports.
Advertising the property on his website, Glaser writes, “Over 50 years ago Shirley and I bought an old farmhouse in the idiosyncratic and charming village of Woodstock. The town and its area share the beautiful qualities of the Hudson Valley and, for whatever reason, have never become gentrified.”
The designer says he did some of his best work in the upstate New York property, including the Dylan poster, which features the singer’s face in black in profile, his hair a swirl of color. Incidentally, the musician was also a resident of the quaint village for a short time.
The house includes a grand room, a swimming pool, a large garden, a spacious studio, and “everything else that makes life in the country desirable,” writes Glaser. According to realtor Village Green, the home is set on over 76 acres of woodland and is only minutes from the village of Woodstock.
“The house itself is totally private and in many ways unique,” said Glaser. “Shirley and I have reached a point in our lives where downsizing has become the obvious choice, and are now in the process of seeking a buyer.”
The asking price for the three-bedroom, 2.5-bath house, Gothamist points out, is equivalent to the average market price for a New York City apartment.
Handling the sale is Village Green Realty’s Laurie Ylvisaker.
