Location: Old Greenwich, Connecticut
This shining contemporary designed by Greenwich,CT-based architect Joeb Moore gets its name, "The Spiral House," from many sources. There's the central interior bridge that links two floors in a circling flow. There's the fact that the cedar-clad house features a swirling mix of materials, including exotic woods, concrete, and steel. And then there's the more abstract idea, as noted in this Greenwich Time
article, that the house is in "synergy with the tides and sand." All this is to say that this eye-catching residence on the Connecticut's sought-after Gold Coast, overlooking the sparking Long Island Sound, makes for rather breathtaking waterfront living.
Built in 2009, the 4,847-square-foot home features (what else?) extended glass walls (plus glass fireplaces and glass tubs), four bedrooms, and open-concept living spaces closely connected to the deck. The winner of several awards—including an American Institute of Architects' National Housing Honor Award in 2010—the Spiral House now wants $5.595M.
