Broker Goes Psychedelic with Ulrich Franzen's Dana House

New, 5 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: New Canaan, Conn.
Price: $5,500,000
The Skinny: Designed by midcentury architect Ulrich Franzen—the man behind Manhattan's Philip Morris building—the Dana House is offered for the first time in its history, by a broker seemingly intent on cashing in its Weed Street location with a psychedelic listing photo. Gimmicks aside, the brick house is an impressive piece of property: nine acres in the heart of tony New Canaan, with 5,700 square feet, five bedrooms, five bathrooms, and expanses of glass that belie the structure's heavy brick forms. Of course, all that comes with a correspondingly high price tag. Asking $5.5M, the property is subdividable, provided the new owners are willing to give up some of the enviable privacy that comes with nine, densely treed acres.
