Tucked back on a country lane road, this picturesque Connecticut home is mid-century modern, but with extra emphasis on the modern. Originally built in 1954, the home of a renowned chef and artist was fully renovated in 2012 and given another update in 2019.

Love the way it’s staged? Go ahead; keep the art and furniture. It’s included in the listing price, which makes this home truly turn-key. 

“This property has been transformed by the owner with surprises at every turn,” says Compass listing agent Kim Harizman

The home’s indoor and outdoor spaces blend together seamlessly. Inside the 3,224-square foot property, soaring ceilings with wooden beams meet walls of glass, paying respect to the verdant outdoor space.

“The buyer will love the way the light floods into the living spaces through the giant picture windows,” says Harizman. “The living spaces are open, airy, and draw people in.”

Outside, you’ll find a stone patio ideal for al fresco dining, plus a lush and thoughtfully landscaped yard. This tranquil retreat is ideal for entertaining or simply relaxing.

But there’s one more surprising waiting on this 2.29-acre lot: A minimalist in-ground pool in the middle of the lawn and that looks like its been pulled from the page of a magazine.

“A complete and private oasis has been created while maintaining the mid-century modern design,” Harizman says.
