John Black Lee, a modernist architect, built himself this stunning glass and concrete home in New Canaan, CT in the '90s, and now it's on the market.

Lee, who passed away earlier this year at the age of 91, was a student of Marcel Breuer and Philip C. Johnson, and his house clearly draws inspiration from the Wassily chair creator and Johnson's Glass House.

You enter the 1,980 square foot, two-bedroom, two-bath home through an A-frame skylight, and the space expands to an open floor plan with living, dining, and kitchen laid out around a stone fireplace and a sculptural staircase. The kitchen appears original, and could use an update, but everything else looks to be in great condition.

We particularly love the wraparound concrete balcony that overlooks the woods and stream. Ahh, nature.

The property is currently listed for a (reduced) $750,000.
