While one home in Darien, Conn. by famed Kennedy Center architect Edward Durrell Stone has a potential demolition hanging over its head, another abode by the same designer just wants to get picked up for $2.05M. Looking over the pair, there's no obvious indication they were drafted by the same guy, who also designed a once-controversial NYC townhouse that was recently on the market for a hair below $10M. The listing describes this one as "inspired by the international style of Mies van der Rohe & Le Corbusier," which actually doesn't look like that big a stretch, at least compared to what usually happens when real estate listings try to interpret architectural style. It was built in 1936, which makes a first- or second-hand encounter with some International Style works pretty likely on Stone's part. Anyway, the 4,268-square-foot four-bedroom was first listed this go-around for $2.675M in May of 2011, and offers a "gourmet kitchen" and a "dramatic double-height living room" that "opens onto expansive bluestone terrace," all of which got "totally renovated" in 2008.
