A midcentury gem, this home is one of only six houses in New Canaan, CT, designed by renowned architect Philip Johnson in the early 1950s. It was restored by Roger Ferris + Partners. “It is the ultimate trophy house,” says Inger Stringfellow, licensed sales associate for William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty in New Canaan, CT, and a mid-century modern and luxury property specialist.
This piece of history has a vintage swimming pool with original diving pad—a twin to the circular pool at Johnson’s famed Glass House, which is preserved as a museum today. “I think the wow factor is just seeing the voluminous glass and pavilion float- ing on its stone pedestal nestled in the rolling landscape and tall hickory trees,” says Stringfellow. The mid-century modern style is being infused into every aspect of home design today and The Wiley House is authentic and unique. “Unlike contemporaries, the true mid-century moderns have a provenance that is in great demand but limited supply,” says Stringfellow.
Open-concept rooms, all-glass walls connecting the home to its natural surroundings and a subtle but spacious galley kitchen make for great entertaining space.
The barn is designed to house a world-class art collection and provide the ultimate entertainment space.
