Woodbury JAM House on market for $1.25 million

It was late when Harley Swedler opened the door to his beloved JAM House in Woodbury, poured himself a glass of wine and began walking down the hallway flipping on lights. Tired as he was, he still radiated the impish intensity that marks his work as an architect and artist. For example, this was not really a home, he said. “This is what I call a machine for living,” said Swedler, who designed the house 17 years ago during a transition from urbanite to suburbanite and now is selling it, at an asking price of $1.25 million, to return to New York City. It is safe to say there are not many living machines of this variety on Long Island.
