Ulrich Franzen Curiosity Defies Greenwich's Prim Standards

New, 1 comment

Designed by architect Ulrich Franzen—champion of blocky Brutalist structures—this Greenwich, Connecticut manse is back on the market for the first time since May 2012, now listed for $12.9M (down a smidge from the $13M it asked starting in 2010). Originally built in 1992, the 8,889-square-foot, five-bedroom home is probably best suited for a buyer who isn't afraid to stand out in a town that goes heavy on brick and shingle—it's Greenwich, after all—for much like Franzen's other notable Connecticut residences, the place looks quite commanding from the outside. The interiors feel less severe, though, with lots of of open living space and lovely light, thanks to a two-story glass atrium. Also on the property: indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a lighted tennis court, room for seven cars, and a guest house with two additional bedrooms. Have a look:
