Hidden in the quaint town of Easton, Conn., sits this unique custom-built contemporary, designed by architect John Newman and inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright’s “Fallingwater” home. Just a little over an hour away from New York City, this six-bedroom, nine-and-a-half-bathroom home contains a breathtaking 800 x 400 square-foot atrium, three-story windows, and steel, stucco and stone throughout. And that’s not even half of what’s nestled inside its walls.
Integrating everyday living with nature, the 9,686-square-foot building is truly a sight to be seen. Blue skies and lush greenery are welcomed inside via the home’s sprawl of German-made windows. If that doesn’t bring the outside close enough, seven terraces provide ample opportunity to sit outside and breathe in the air. Conversely, for those chilly summer or fall evenings, six fireplaces are scattered throughout, including one in the formal dining room that stretches floor to ceiling among many exposed steel rafters.
For those who love to cook, the chef’s kitchen is decorated with honed granite, an island and a stainless steel stove. One of the home’s many terraces is located just off the kitchen, providing a convenient space for outside dining or, at the very least, a sunny indoor meal.
