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 and nine-and-a-half-bathroom home contains a breathtaking 800 x 400 atrium, three-story windows and steel, stucco and stone throughout. And that’s not even half of what’s hidden inside its walls.
Integrating everyday living with nature, the 9,686 square foot building is really a sight to be seen. Blue skies and lush greenery are welcomed inside by the home’s sprawl of German-made windows. If that doesn’t bring the outside close enough, seven terraces allow its homeowners the chance 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 of the kitchen for convenient outside dining or at the very least, a sunny indoor meal.
Sharing a fireplace with the home office, the master bedroom suite contains built-in desks with warm wooden shelving throughout. Other perks include hardwood floors, a walk-in closet, its own private balcony and the master bath, enwrapped in slate walls and flooring, and limestone counters. And a hot tub encased in glass?
