One of my favorite houses is for sale. I fell in love with its organic feel and manageable scale the moment I laid eyes upon it in the December 2008 issue of The World of Interiors.
Completed in 1966 and designed by Bauhaus luminary Marcel Breuer, the house is located in Litchfield, Connecticut (about 2 hours from NYC).
The house was purchased in 2007 and underwent a thorough restoration by an NYC based couple working in the fashion industry. I love the brick floors in this house because they are heated (perfect for those Connecticut winters)!
White stucco walls and fieldstone are the perfect contrast. The way the low-slung house hugs the hillside and blends with the surrounding lanscape is magic. Above is a shot of the guesthouse.
