This 1956 Stamford home is, according to its current owner, an original Techbuilt House, a prefabricated home made of standardized panels developed by architect Carl Koch in the early ’50s.

Carefully expanded by Bertram Lee Winston in 1962, the four-bed-four-bath post-and-beam measures 4,671 square feet and features original details including terrazzo floors and wood paneling. Soaring, beamed ceilings supported by walls of windows flood the home with sunlight, while split-levels imbue the home with an even more dynamic flow.

Other striking elements include two brick hearths, one of which is clad in a copper sheet, a complementary hand-forged and -hammered copper bar, and a large, original stained glass window in the living room.

A screened-in patio, professional artist studio, decking, and, of course, over an acre of verdant land round out the property. Located at 165 Wellington Drive and only 50 minutes from Manhattan, the home is offered at $898,000.
