For sale: Philip Johnson-designed mid-century house in New Canaan, Connecticut, NY, USA

Can1

One for our US readers (or UK readers with an urge to relocate) – the Philip Johnson-designed mid-century house in New Canaan, Connecticut, NY, USA.

Johnson designed the house back in 1953 – and it’s a stone’s throw away from his more famous Glass House. Indeed, there’s plenty of glass in this one too, mixed with more traditional masonry, slate-tiled floors and plastered walls. There’s also a gravel courtyard at its centre, designed as a ‘negative imprint’ of the house itself.

For the not-inconsiderable asking price, the house offers just two
bedrooms, two bathrooms, an eat-in kitchen, reception room, sitting
room, dining room and a separate guest house with an additional bedroom
and bathroom. Room for two cars too – and if you’re looking for an
investment, there’s also planning approval for an additional house on
the plot.

Just as well – this house will set you back $3,500,00 (around £2,000,000).
