Looking to snap up a midcentury summer home in one of Connecticut’s most affluent towns? You’ve just hit the real estate lottery! This 1957 beauty boasts a striking yellow and orange façade and has just popped up for sale in Greenwich, asking a speck under $3 million.
Nestled amid a heavily wooded four-acre parcel overlooking the Byram River, and secluded down a long driveway marked by a stone-pillared entrance, the property was redesigned and significantly expanded in the 1970s by famed modernist architect Paul Rudolph. It comes complete with four bedrooms and four baths in a roomy 5,100 square feet of open-concept living space, and also a private backyard hosting an expansive swimming pool.
The two-story structure boasts a covered entryway and stone steps leading inside, where the stylish interiors are adorned throughout with copious built-ins, a mix of hardwood and stone floors, and exposed wood beams and columns in lieu of load-bearing walls. Floor-to-ceiling windows grace almost every room.
Especially standing out on the main level is a massive stone fireplace that separates a casual wet bar-equipped lounge area on one side from a formal dining room on the other, and a large galley-style kitchen that’s been updated with stainless appliances.
Other highlights include an ensuite bedroom and office, along with a living room and fireside sitting room that leads to a screened-in porch cantilevered high above the grounds and rushing river below.
A wide hallway/dressing room lined with closets leads to the large primary bedroom, which has glass sliders flowing outdoors and an adjacent bath accessed via Shoji-style sliding doors. On the lower level, there’s an additional ensuite bedroom with its own private entrance, while a guest apartment rests atop the property’s detached two-car garage.
