A Paul Rudolph-Designed Mansion on Long Island Sound

New, 8 comments

Have a nomination for a jaw-dropping listing that would make a mighty fine House of the Day? Get thee to the tipline and send us your suggestions. We'd love to see what you've got.


Location: Greenwich, Conn.
Price: $12,495,000
The Skinny: For six years the dean of the Yale School of Architecture, the late Paul Rudolph was one of the most influential architects of the post-war era and taught current starchitects like Norman Foster and Richard Rogers. This waterfront mansion in Greenwich is one of his residential projects, an angular, glassy structure that takes in breathtaking views of Long Island Sound. Known as Clifton-On-The-Sound, the four-bed, 4.5-bath currently suffers from some worn and dated interiors, what with that conversation pit, those pink walls, and the questionable furniture, but that doesn't stop this desirable property from asking $12.5M.
