Location: Greenwich, Connecticut
Brace yourself for this midcentury modern treasure in Greenwich, Connecticut, because even though it’s currently empty and needs significant repairs, there’s a ton to appreciate.
Built in 1965 by architect E.H. Paul, the 2,258-square-foot four-bedroom boasts a dramatically sloping roof that creates dynamic spaces inside of the residence. Wood panels the ceilings and walls, with built-in shelving systems and large windows and glass doors found throughout.
The main attraction is the expansive “front-to-back” double-height atrium-like entry hall with soaring, beamed ceilings, wooden staircase, and balcony, illuminated by a floor-to-ceiling strip of glass. On this floor are the common areas, while the floor above comprises the spacious bedrooms and a library, which all feature vaulted ceilings.
Situated on approximately seven acres, the property also includes a two-car detached garage with a workshop and a second-story studio, which, if fixed up, could add even more value to the already special home. If owning a midcentury fixer-upper sounds like the dream to you, you’ll need to fork over $1,542,000 to make 30 Sumner Road yours.
