Location: Middlebury, Connecticut
This late-century modern in Middlebury, Connecticut—just 85 miles from New York City—was designed by Harris Feinn in 1977. It takes the open plans, straight lines, and low-slung profiles of the previous period’s architecture and updates it with a sleek, luxurious sheen.
Four bedrooms are set over 3,864 square feet, with an expansive step-down living area featuring paneled ceilings, granite fireplace, and floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors providing access to a wrap-around deck taking center stage. Custom cabinetry, plenty of built-ins, hardwood floors can be found throughout the rest of the main level, which comprises a three-room master suite (including a den with fireplace and outdoor access), a den-cum-office-cum-guest room, two additional bedrooms, and a family room.
The large chef’s kitchen makes it easy to entertain, while the property’s four acres of wooded land provide plenty of opportunities to enjoy the surrounding greenery, and of course, the stone pool. A pool house and basement amenities like a wine cellar and au pair quarters round out the home. Located at 135 Crest Road, it’s asking $1,670,000.
