Richard H. Mandel House is a historic home located at Bedford Hills, Westchester County, New York. It was designed by noted architect Edward Durell Stone and built between 1933 and 1935 in the International style. It is a "Z"-shaped building sited overlooking the Croton Reservoir. It is a two story, concrete block, steel frame and stucco building with a partial basement recessed into the sloping site. It features a flat roof, smooth and uniform wall surfaces, lack of applied ornament, asymmetrical composition with an emphasis on horizontality, and projecting balconies and wide expanses of ribbon windows. The original owner was Richard Mandel (1907–1976), a member of the Mandel Brothers department store family of Chicago.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1996.[1]
