Price: $979,000

Little is known about the origins of this stately house in New Canaan, Connecticut, just an hour outside of Manhattan, except that it was built in 1966 with a Techbuilt core, and that it’s on the market for the first time ever.

As for its features, the 5,700-square-foot residence boasts quite a few, including five bedrooms, five bathrooms, a soaring great room with vaulted and beamed ceilings, and other incredible spaces illuminated by glass expanses, woodwork, and stone.

Sited on just under 1.5 acres of land characterized by a rocky outcrop, the home incorporates some of the landscape in its architecture, as can be seen in the stone additions that have been added to the wood-frame.

From the front, the structure appears to have the broad, peaked profile typical of the era, but the rear tells a different story, looking more stone-manse than midcentury. A manicured lawn surrounded by trees furthers the mystery.

In any case, there is a lot to like, and even more to work with (including a pool that needs restoring). Located at 243 Smith Ridge Road, it’s offered at $979,000. Take a look.
