$1.8M Connecticut Contemporary Was Inspired by Fallingwater

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: Easton, Conn.
Price: $1,840,000
The Skinny: Sometimes it seems that contemporary American homes can all be divided (at least according to brokers across the land) into two camps of purported architectural influence: there are the homes inspired by Philip Johnson's Glass House and there are those which took their cues from Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater. This combination personal home and corporate retreat in Connecticut falls, the listing assures us, into the latter camp because of its "harmony between the building materials, nature and homeowners." Built by an entrepreneur to simultaneously house her family and host sales training sessions for her employees, the home has loads of features you wouldn't often see in a private residence, including a three-story glass atrium, a banquet hall, and a recreation center with ball field, pool, and game room. It's a pretty good deal, considering the owner reckons she has sunk over $5M into the six-bedroom place. The ask? $1.84M.
